Brown sugar  . . . .

Notes in parentheses are optional, but add a deeper, bluesy flavor,
especially when slightly bent.

At the end, when Mick is singing,  "Yeah, yeah, yeah, . . . woo!"
go back and forth between A chord diagramG+G (open) and A chord diagramC majorC (5th fret bar).  (If you’ve
gotten this far, you will figure it out.)

I’m tabbing from memory, but I think this should at least get you
close. Feel free to send comments/suggestions.


Album/Year:	"Sticky Fingers" 1971, written by Ritchards/Jagger
Tabbed by:	Chase Castle

After searching long and hard for the lead guitar tab. for Brown Sugar,
I finally took it upon myself to tab it out. So here it is, but
remember, I only tabbed the lead guitar, not the rythm. The rythm
guitar part is attached to the end of my file via Tim Cantin
(tim@shovel.Prime.COM) and John Kollins (73027.3417@compuserve.com).
Don’t be overwhelmed by the fact that this file is three seperate
files tied together.

The Lead is played in standard tuning:

I’d write out the structure of the song for you, but that should be
pretty easy to pick up, plus it changes for every band depending upon
what you do to deal with the saxophone part (like have a sax player
play it, jam it out on lead guitar, or skip over it). Send questions,
comments, or error identifications to:  Cushman84@aol.com -Good luck
