He played open E on IORR 76 version. Around and Around on Love you Live is another good example...

Both open G.

Sorry i don´t agrre with you. Both in open E. And only for the 75-76 tour in case of IORR. Around and around it´s got a E or D? tunnin for that rocker, just try this one in open E and get surprised.......

No, both are in open G. It's even very evident in Keith's solos on both songs.

Of course you can play A&A in open E -capo on the 5th, and all chord shapes and voicings are basically the same as in open G, except that you play them on the E, A, D, G, B strings and not on the A, D, G, B, E strings. But it sounds totally different -lower, heavier - and the solo is more difficult to play.

But as far as I know Richards has not played open E tuning live on an electric ever in his carreer.

Is there any live footage of this one? The original is in open E tuning as well, or is it this same guitar track ?



Only the vocals are live here, but kudos for bring up R'n'Roll Circus, as Keith DOES play open E live on You Can't Always Get (from '72 on I believe he plays it in open G).

Keith used standard tuning for the whole of the stones part of the R&R Circus live set. Brian used open A for No Expectations.

Including YCAGWYW? I swore it was in open E, like the original recording is.
