BROWN SUGAR INTRO
There have been a few requests on the net for more "Stones stuff".
I presume that means "Keith Richard". I would like to contribute
with an attempt on the Brown Sugar Intro. In previous letters
tabulatures were presented with more complex fingering - without
retuning the instrument. The following is more straightforward.
N.B. Open-G tuning is requiered. Through away your lower-D string
if you are perticular about sounding like Keith does. X, Y, Z are the
10th, 11th an 12th position. In hex that would be A, B, C but confusing
to use.

I hope I got the timing right. (Too bad Emacs isn't connected to
