Inappropriate title for my 1000th lesson :) but You Can't Always Get What You Want by The Rolling Stones is a wonderful song to play, really interesting one if you've not tried playing in Open E Tuning before.

 

Open E Tuning

If you play a regular fretted Open E chord you will have the sound of strumming with no fingers on in Open E Tuning. It's a real fun tuning to explore, and great for slide guitar. I have a lesson on how to get into Open E:
