If this is guy right, that's some good work.

Highly improbable.

It might be overtones/guitar harmonics he's hearing that leads him to believe it's a 12 string setup with the light e-strings.

Yes, wildly overcomplicated.

Occam’s Razor would say that it’s open-E, because Beggars and LIB are wall-to-wall with D and E tunings. What are the odds that Keith’s first use of open G was not HTW, but, rather, this weird, heretofore undiscovered hybrid that he would never use again?!

Open tuning was never my forte .

Meh, it's just open E with capo at 8th fret. Simple.

This fella has been over thinking it and ending up with a suitably over complicated conclusion.

It is actually in Nashville Tuning (as was Wild Horses) - which is just replacing the standard E A D G strings with those an octave higher (so - yes, like a 12 string without the low EADG strings).

The irony is that after all that effort and jabbering on the guy still doesn't play it quite right!

Keith never played it like that again anyway - so....

It's not Nashville tuning on YCAGWYW. The licks on the A, D and G-strings are not an octave higher. It's open E with a capo on the 8th fret.

Yes and what helps tell us is that the 1st and 2nd strings and the respective C and G notes ring out through out the main part.

The essentials of it are covered and shown well enough here.

Yes James, is one of the best Stones interpreter on the Tube; also Who, Zep etc. He doesn't show it much but he can solo his ass off too.
Like MelBellis says - Occam's Razor. And one thing that one learns when delving into Keith's catalog: he always took the easy route haha..
The descending type fills Keith plays clearly demonstrate that this is not any Nashville strung guitar.

Isn't it sometimes played in Open-G capoed at the 5th fret?

Yup, that’s been the arrangement from 1972 to the present.

Re: YCAGWYW - Tuning

Studio version: Open E, capo 8th fret
Rock'n'Roll Circus: Standard tuning
Since 1972: Open G, capo 5th fret.

During the recording of Wild Horses, Jim Dickinson said he asked Keith what chords he was playing. Bill Wyman came over and said, 'He doesn't know. He only knows where his fingers go.'

It's not that easy to remember the exact name of some of those hybrid minor chords. I'm pretty sure Keith knew those were Am and Bm, but Jim probably wondered because of the open ringing G-string(s) smiling smiley

I just watched as much of this video I could stomach and this guy is a doofis . The mystery of Keith's magical work on the fretboard besides his use of open tunings is his phrasing and sound and tone etc. Keith is a master as he has perfected a technique that yes can be copied note for note ,but it will never sound the same . That in a nutshell is pure genius ! Note for note recreation YES , just try to make it sound EXACTLY like Keith ? It wont because Keith makes it sing swing and everything else !

Yes about the doofus

Starts with “hey what’s up” thumbs down
Wears a hat indoor thumbs down
Talks for several minutes before even playing one note thumbs down

smoking smiley
