In this video we take a look at how to play Beast Of Burden by The Rolling Stones. This song uses a mix of open chords and barre chords. However, the simple structure with simple strumming make it a perfect improver/ early intermediate song for either acoustic or electric guitar players to dig into - give it a go!

The song features a great riff, which is played using triads higher up the neck. The triads with some hammer-on ideas make this intermediate level, so keep that in mind while learning this song!
