Let's learn how to play "Start Me Up" as recorded by the Rolling Stones on guitar. This incredible guitar part is in Keith Richards' most common electric guitar tuning, open G.

The shapes used in this song are a perfect example of what I call the Keith Richards rhythm style. This style has influenced generations of rock guitar players and can be heard in clubs, arenas, and recording studios every day around the world. Let's break it down!
