This lesson shows to how to play the intro to the classic song Gimme Shelter from the album Let It Bleed Written by MicK Jagger and Keith Richards.

“Gimme Shelter” was placed at #38 on Rolling Stone’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time” in 2004.

The song has been featured in numerous movies and tv shows. Martin Scorsese has used the song as a theme in his crime films Goodfellas (1990), Casino (1995), and The Departed (2006), though not in his documentary Shine a Light (2008) about the Stones. Go figure!

The 1970 documentary film Gimme Shelter, directed by Albert and David Maysles and Charlotte Zwerin, chronicling the last weeks of the Stones’ 1969 US tour and culminating in the disastrous Altamont Free Concert, took its name from the song. A live version of the song played over the credits.
