Animated Shes like a Rainbow tab by The Rolling Stones on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

Let's have some fun with this famous (and easy to play) Rolling Stones song. Here we include the backing music for you, and show you the rhythm guitar part. The rhythm guitar is deliberately louder in the mix to help you pick it out / jam along with it easier. There are gaps between the rhythm guitar parts, so just enjoy the instrumentals inbetween (or have fun working out your own melodies). We also take a look at the lead guitar in this song next, so fear not - your fingers will have plenty to do.

This song only uses 2 chord shapes throughout, to cycle through 3 chords. That means that with some chord practice, anyone can learn this great song quickly and easily!

The chords are played using the E major and A major Barre shapes to play through the Bb Major, Eb major and F major.

Check out the accompanying article in the Jamzone to learn more about playing this song, and to learn some important tips about playing the A barre chord shape.

If you wish to solo happily with this tune, load up the normal speed audio, and use the Bb Major scale:

Bb - C - D - Eb - F - G - A - Bb

You can also use the relative minor scale of Bb major - the G natural minor (or the G pentatonic minor scale) which will give a more bluesy / rock sound. They may be the same notes, but emphasising the different root and 3rd notes in particular will give you a different feel:

G - A - Bb - C - D - Eb - F - G

G - Bb - C - D - F - G (pentatonic minor)

Have fun!!
