“Honky Tonk Women” (1969)
According to an article on the Gibson website they say:
Unlike most Stones hits of the 1960s and early ’70s, this song doesn’t open with a riff. A cowbell precedes the distinctive stuttering guitar lick. But then the six-string kicks in and the result is one of the most distinctive licks in Richards’ canon. Initially written as a Hank Williams-influenced country blues – and recorded as such under the title “Country Honk” – the song got supercharged by the arrival of Gibson Les Paul legend Mick Taylor in the group, on the heels of Brian Jones’ death.
I guess the versions I remember must be more refined a little more. While the guitar licks are similar, but Mick doesn’t sound as off-key.
