the subsection entitled "Musical equipment for the solo"[edit]

i've removed this subsection because the source it refers to (the Godard film) doesn't actually show the playing/recording of the solo. and although i agree with the bit about the tone of the guitar, unless a reliable source is cited for it, it's original research, which Wikipedia policies don't allow. here's what i removed, in case someone wants to rephrase it and source it properly:

Film clips from the recording of the song (as well as the tone of the guitar on the released track) reveal that Richards used his 1957 three pick-up Gibson Les Paul Custom. In the clips various amps are seen, with a Vox AC-30 and a solid state Vox Supreme as the main guitar amps. From photos of the "Beggars Banquet" sessions, various Hiwatt amps are seen as well.

In Guitar Player magazine, Richards says the solo is the acoustic guitar distorted through a small tape recorder. I'll try to find this info on line. DavidRavenMoon (talk) 01:14, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

Influences and origins[edit]

The Primal Scream/Andrew Weatherall song Loaded uses the same samba rhythm and chord sequence. The question is where did it come from, before Jagger picked it up? [added by User:JCJC777 12 November 2017‎, moved from article space.] —Ojorojo (talk) 23:08, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
