Paint It Black Guitar Lesson – The Rolling Stones

FavoriteLoadingBookmark this Lesson.

In this Paint It Black guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this awesome song by The Rolling Stones on acoustic guitar.

The tuning is a bit strange on the original recording. You need to have a capo at the 2nd fret, but you will still sound a little bit flat of the original recording. You will need to either slightly tune each string up, or place an mp3 of the track into software like Seventh String's "Transcribe" to slightly detune the recording so you can play along with it in tune. That is what I needed to due in order to transcribe this song.

I will be arranging the sitar melodies for guitar and they sound really nice on an acoustic guitar. There is also some rhythm guitar work under the sitar melodies that I will cover just in case you have a second guitarist you can jam this with.

I will go through each section of the song in the order that it appears on the recording. There are a lot of repeats so hopefully you will get this great song under your fingers in no time!

Thanks! Carl...
