“Angie” by The Rolling Stones

  • by

Difficulty: Easy – Intermediate

This song really isn’t as hard as some may think. I have shown some of the fingerings for the notes, but remember the key to learning the style of Keith Richards is one to build on. He uses lots of pauses in the songs, and the notes are very sparse, BUT they are quite important for the rhythm.

Intro

This is all one guitar part. You can see here that you are really playing known chords. They just look different when he picks them out.

Fingerings

Verse

This is all one guitar part. This is very loose in the sound, so remember to keep those pickup notes for each measure perfect. The pickup notes here would be the Am, the open E string, the fifth fret on the D string, and so on.

Chorus

Guitar 1 is on top, and Guitar 2 is on bottom. The second guitar is much easier, as it plays standard chords.

Bridge

All the guitars play this for the bridge. It looks like you strum straight through for the Dm, however, notice the staff bars. They tell you to allow some breathing room for the Dm chords.
