Today's video is on how to play "Paint It Black" on guitar by The Rolling Stones. “Paint It Black” was first released as a single on May 7th, 1966. It is one of the Rolling Stones’ most popular songs, and it is on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All-Time list.
The main riff to this song was actually played on a sitar by Brian Jones. This riff copies the vocal melody to the song and may perhaps be the most legendary use of a sitar in rock and roll.
