Sympathy for the Devil

  		Tabbed by Andrew Ker ([email protected])                  

Easy to play and fun. Since there's basically only two riffs playing all the  
way through, you have to add a few variations to spice it up. "Less is more" 
in this song, though. 
 
Enjoy. 
 
Note: On my recording, this song is quite flat (about halfway between being in 
Eb and E). I've written it out in E, but you might want to transpose.
