Please help support my lessons by donating here: Facebook: An acoustic guitar lesson on how to play Angie by the Rolling Stones. Angie was the first single off of "Goats Head Soup" which was released in 1973. It went to number 1 in the UK and the US. The intro is a real classic but although the chords are simple, getting this down like the record is going to take some work for most players as there's some pretty intricate picking involved. After the intro, 1st verse and 1st chorus it's more or less just jamming over the chord changes, but getting the first bits down is pretty important for such an instantly recognizable tune. Keith Richards is a very good acoustic player. You can really hear his blues based background in a lot of the licks he plays. I've recently read some stuff online about folks wondering if Mick Taylor played the acoustic on Angie as the playing is pretty precise, but I think that's underestimating Keiths ability. I'm pretty sure it was him playing the main part of this song. I hope you enjoy the lesson and good luck learning the tune. cheers The guitar I'm playing here is a Taylor 214ce koa deluxe. I really like this guitar, it intonates amazingly well and it's tone is very balanced. It's also very easy to play. The strings are Elixir phosphor bronze 12-53 with nanoweb coating. These strings are a little bit more expensive, but for me they easily last 4-5 times longer than non coated strings.
