Animated Gimme Shelter (Lead) tab by The Rolling Stones on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

The lead for this song is rather lovely. It is nice and bluesy and best of all - all in 1 position on the fretboard. That makes it much easier to learn and play than most solos!

The lead just uses The C# natural minor scale with the first finger rooted at fret 9.

NB... Even through the backing guitar is not in standard tuning, this lead guitar is.
