Here's how to play the classic song Jumpin' Jack Flash by The Rolling Stones!

This lesson contains two tutorials for this song, the first is a beginner friendly version in standard tuning where I demo how we can play this song with simple chords and even play it even on acoustic guitar.

See a Keith Richards style open G tuning version of this song further down this page.

Here's how to play Jumpin' Jack Flash by The Rolling Stones, accurate to how Keith Richards plays it in the Live video further down this page!

Open G tuning is (strings 6 to 1 - x means this string is not played, Keith takes his string 6 off!);

X - G - D - G - B - D

To do this, you'll need a tuner that shows any note name (some tuners only work for standard tuning). After this initial setup, everything is quite easy to play - give it a go!
