Beast of Burden by The Rolling Stones

Song Difficulty


Lesson Description

In this lesson we will be studying the Rolling Stones tune Beast of Burden. This song is a great example of how Keith Richards voices chords in standard tuning.  Rarely does he play a full barre chord, but instead uses bits and inversions to create classic riffs we all recognize.  These unique chord voicings along with the use of hammer-ons within the chords, are the secret to his overall playing style.  At the end of the lesson I will also show you how to improvise, in general, over the chord changes.
