Tumbling Dice - The Rolling Stones
00:00 / 00:00
Tabs and lyrics
Tunning: Standard (E A D G B e)
I know this song was written in open g or e but i hate having to change tuning so i
it out in standard tuning. Capo supposed to be on 5th fret i think.
Intro:
e-------------------------------------------------------------------|
b-1-/-3-\-1---------------------------------------------------------|
g-2-/-4-\-2 ^ 0-----------------------------------------------------|
d-----------P----2 ^ 0----------------------------------------------|
a------------------P----2 ^ 0---------------------------------------|
e-------------------------P----3------------------------------------|

Verse:
The verse is all just G or if you take the capo into consideration its actually a C. I
its called blues
shuffle but just listen to find the timing, or you can strum the whole chord and mute
note to get the rhythm right
its something like this, dont forget the capo n 5th fret
e----------------------------------------------------------|
b----------------------------------------------------------|
g----------------------------------------------------------|
d----------------------------------------------------------|
a----5------5--7--5--5--5--7--5------5--7--5--5--5--7--5---|
e----3------3--3--3--3--3--3--3------3--3--3--3--3--3--3---|

then it changes at: Baby Baby....the notes are taking the capo into consideration ill
the what the chord would be if the capo was zero in (perentheses)

E(B) C(G)E(B) C(G) D(A) E(B)
But ba---by, ba----by, I dont need no jewels in my crown.

Then the aweseome chorus/outro riff

e||-------------------------------------------------------------||
b||--1----------------------------------------------------------||
g||o-0 ^ 2--0-----------------------------------------------o---||
d||o---H-------2--0---------------------------0 ^ 2 ^ 0-----o---||
a||-------------------2 ^ 0-------2 ^ 0---------H---P-----------||
e||---------------------P----3------P-----3---------------------||
"Roll me" -------------------------------------you got to ------||
