Angie – Verse and chorus
Let’s learn how to play Angie by the Rolling Stones!
Use the TAB loops until you can play along perfectly.
Remember to first focus on the rhythm and making the switch from one chord to another smooth. As the TAB show, you may want to use open strings to achieve this.
When you can play it, focus in on the fine details of the TAB and aim to hit the same amount of strings as it shows.
Spend ten to fifteen minutes on the verse before you move on to the chorus.
Again, first focus on the rhythm of each bar, piecing it together one bar after another. Check your transitions sound smooth using the open strings to help you.
The hardest part of this is over the Dm and Am, second time around. The rhythm turns itself around here, a very effective trick.
The following C and F/C are on purpose played very simple and clear, this makes the previous bars appear even more interesting.
Spend another ten to fifteen minutes working on nailing the chorus, just like the TAB loop.
Next time, we take a look at the remaining two sections from Angie, the M8 and the intro.
See you then!
