This is going to be a thread for tab that we are considering for our jam in North Texas in February, so that everyone will have the opportunity to learn and play these songs when we get together, but we wanted to make it available to all GN members, too. There might be some duplicate posts (i.e. things that have been posted in the general threads that someone also wants for the jam). So, I'll start it off with the Stone's 'Dead Flowers'.

Dead Flowers - The Rolling Stones

Well, [D] when you're sitting [A] there in your [G] silk upholstered [D]
chair,
[D] Talking to some [A] rich folk that you [G] know, [D]
Well I [D] hope you won't see [A] me in my [G] ragged compa[D]ny,
For [D] you know I could [A] never be a[G]lone. [D]

Take me [A] down little Suzie, take me [D] down.
[A] I know you think you're the queen of the under[D]ground.
And you can [G] send me dead flowers every [D] morning,
[G] Send me dead flowers by the [D] mail,
[G] Send me dead flowers to my [D] wedding,
And I [D] won't forget to put [A] roses on your [G] grave. [D]

Well, [D] when you're sitting [A] back in your [G] rose pink Cadil[D]lac,
[D] Making bets on [A] Kentucky Derby [G] day, [D]
I'll be [D] in my basement [A] room with a [G] needle and a [D] spoon,
And a[D]nother girl can [A] take my pain a[G]way. [D]

Chorus

Solo on Verse

Take me [A] down little Suzie, take me [D] down.
[A] I know you think you're the queen of the under[D]ground.
And you can [G] send me dead flowers every [D] morning,
[G] Send me dead flowers by the U. S. [D] mail,
[G] Say it with dead flowers at my [D] wedding,
And I [D] won't forget to put [A] roses on your [G] grave. [D]
No I [D] won't forget to put [A] roses on your [G] grave. [D]

And, here's the Stone's 'Brown Sugar'............ (Thank you, Wes!)
Wes's Classic Rock- Brown Sugar Rolling Stones

Keith Richards, what a burnout. That's what most people think. Let me tell you, he's a guitar
genius. How many people you know have written 50 hits?

Ever watch him play? Looks like he plays with one finger (almost). That's because he does.
Here's one of his classic one finger hits. Well, you need your middle and ring finger too.

e--------------------------------------------
B--13---12-------5--5---6--6--5-/--12--
G--12---12-------5--5---5--5--5-/--12-- X 4
D--14---12-------5--5---7--7--5-/--12--
A-------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------

e------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B--8----9--8---9---8------5----6--5--6--5----1---1-1---3-3----5-5--6-5-6-5-
G--8----8--8---8---8------5----5--5--5--5----1---1-1---3-3----5-5--5-5-5-5- X 2
D--8---10--8--10--8------5----7--5--7--5----1---1-1---3-3----5-5--7-5-7-5-
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK, those are parts 1 & 2. Now the verses start

e------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B---------------------------- 5-5-----------------------------------------------------10-10---------
G--5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5--------10-10-10---10-10-10---10-10-10-10-10-10-10-
D--5-5-7---5-5-7---5-5-7------7-5--------10-10-12---10-10-12---10-10-12---------12-10-
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

e--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------5-5----------1--1-1----3-3---5-5---6-5-6-5--
G--5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----1--1-1----3-3---5-5---5-5-5-5--
D--5-5-7---5-5-7---5-5-7------7-5-----1--1-1----3-3---5-5---7-5-7-5--
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, here's the cool chorus

e------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------13-12-13-12----5-5--6-5-6-5----5-5--6-5-6-5--
G-----0---------------------12-12-12-12----5-5--5-5-5-5----5-5--5-5-5-5-- X 2 (Return to Part 2)
D-----0---------------5-----14-12-14-12----5-5--7-5-7-5----5-5--7-5-7-5--
A-----X--------5--7---------------------------------------------------------------
E--3--3--/--7----------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, that's it. Keep guitar simple. Just like Keith.

That looked pretty good when I previewed it. Let me know if it came out ok.

Wes

Great post Elektrablue!!

Just one question, well a couple actually, regarding Under My Thumb.

First off, does the intro riff you've given form what they play during the verses, and how do you play the chorus with the B in it??

I really want to learn this song so any advise much appreciated.

Thanks a lot

Matt

Great post Elektrablue!!

Thank you very much!

Yes, it does...........
and how do you play the chorus with the B in it??
That didn't come across too well, did it? LOL! Try this............
CHORUS:
A
It's down to me
D B
The difference in the clothes she wears
F#m
It's down to me
E
The change has come
D A
She's under my thumb
(Ain't it the truth babe)

And, here's the verse again....... this shows a little better where to play the "intro" during the verse..........
VERSE:
F#m
Under my thumb's
E
The girl
D
Who once had me down
F#m
Under my thumb's
E
The girl
D
Who once pushed me around

And, as long as I'm at it........... here's a little clearer intro........
INTRO: -- 2x's

F#m F#m E E D D D D
E ----------------|----------------|--------------------------------|
B ----------------|----------------|--------------------------------|
G ----------------|----------------|------0--2------------0--2------|

A ----0--2--4-----|-------0--2-----|--------------------------------|
E --2---------2-2-|--0--4------0-0-|--------------------------------|


Hope that helps! If not, let me know and I'll try to simplify it a bit!

And here's Cripple Creek, the only son I know that makes mention of the town that I call home these days:

UP ON CRIPPLE CREEK
The Band
A D
When I get off of this mountain, you know where I want to go?
A D E
Straight down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico.
A D
To Lake Charles, Louisiana, little Bessie, a girl who I once knew.
A D E
She told me just to come on by if there's anything that she could do.

A
Up on Cripple Creek, she sends me.
D
If I spring a leak, she mends me.
E
I don't have to speak, she defends me.
F#m G
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one.

Good luck had just stung me, to the race track I did go.
She bet on one horse to win and I bet on another to show.
The odds were in my favor, I had them five to one.
That nag to win came around the track, sure enough she had won.

(refrain)

I took up all of my winnings and I gave little Bessie half.
She tore it up and threw it in my face just for a laugh.
There's one thing in the whole wide world I sure would like to see.
That's when that little love of mine dips her doughnut in my tea.

(refrain)

Me and my mate we were back at the shack, we had Spike Jones on the box.
She says, "I can't take the way he sings, but I love to hear him talk."
Now that just gave my heart a throb to the bottom of my feet.
And I swore as I took another pull, my Bessie can't be beat.

(refrain)

Yodel over:

|:A |D |A |D :|

There's a flood out in California and up north it's freezing cold.
And this living on the road is getting pretty old.
So I guess I'll call up my big mama, tell her I'll be rolling in.
But you know, deep down, I'm kind of tempted
To go and see my Bessie again.

(refrain)

Yodel again
and fade

Regards,

Mike

Cripple Creek brings back some great memories! I used to date this guy (and we're still friends) who called me his "Bessie"........ said that I was definitely a drunkard's dream if he ever did see one! LOL!

David taught it to me this weekend. It's in double drop D and it's a piece of cake with a little practice.

Hmmm........if you're going to use code, you only need one space between each note....might save overlapping to a second line and getting really confusing.....

You can always hit "preview" to see how it'll turn out...then edit the darn thing!

Or, if it's a really long line, split it up into sections...

Just a suggestion....
