  1. This looks fairly simple. And it would be nice to be able to play this myself. Would you consider this a beginner song? I really do need to get back into playing the guitar. It has been ages. Great post for a great Stones song.

    1. It’s not a beginner song, as it contains some bar chords. It’s not too hard either. I would say it’s between intermediate and beginner 😉 Great song indeed.
