The Rolling Stones Song: Sway Album: Sticky Fingers Year: 1971 Guitarists: Mick Jagger, Mick Taylor Tuning: 5 String Open G (Bottom string removed - GDGBD), Standard
*Open G parts transcribed with only the 5 necessary strings shown*
This is one of my all time favorite Stones songs. It features excellent guitar by Mick Taylor. Mick Jagger plays on this track. No Keith to be found. Keep in mind that Jagger has a sloppy playing style, so don't play everything exactly the same. I can't guarentee every note of the solo's are correct as some of it is very hard to hear in spots, but there were no tabs on the web of Sway, so I tried my best! I trust you guys know the song and where each part goes. Listen to the song for strumming. The first solo is played with a slide. Taylor played some notes with the slide and some with his fingers. The second solo has no slide. Pay attention to recording to hear when to play Fill 1.
