Bill Wyman as guitarist

I believe Wyman played guitar on Heaven, but did he ever play guitar on any other Stones track.I know he played guitar on some of his solo songs, but I have never heard any of his solo songs.Since he also played other instruments on Stones songs like organ , percussion, autoharp and marimbas Im surprised he didn’t play guitar.Not expecting like Paul McCartbeys guitar output with the Beatles .

Main guitar on Heaven in Jagger.

I don't think Bill has ever played guitar on a stones song.

At the time guitar and keyboards were the main instruments that songriters used to compose pop songs, that is why we have Jagger on guitar on many songs and no Bill.

Other than Heaven , do you know from his solo songs what style of guitar playing he has.Does he sound like Brian or Keith?But according to the credits Bill does play guitar on Heaven.On an unrelated issue,he did a really good job as a producer for the Tucky Buzzard albums.I think he had talents which weren’t fully exploited while in the band

There are no credits on TY. However, according to interviews (Kimsey) it is Jagger playing guitar. According to Bill, he too played guitar. I only hear one, though.

You can hear some of what likely is his strumming here.

I’d imagine he’s a fairly competent guitarist. It’d have been interesting to hear how he sounded on the six-string during his peak as the Stones’ bassist.

You can see here that he plays two strings tuned so that he easily can play the boogie figure without having to stretch his fingers. I seem to remember Wyman himself stating in an interview that he couldn't really play the guitar other than some strumming in some open tunings.

That surprises me, as I've always been under the impression that most bassists are, at least, adequate on guitar.

Depends on how you define adequate I guess.

He said he played bass because his hands were too small to play guitar.
