    Anyone have a good tab for this beauty? Everything I found doesn't seem quite right.

    hollywood, baby......
    someday I will find 4 or 5 other guys who want to play the blues the way it was played before it became all about guitar heroics
    Not sure how helpful this is, but if you ever find a copy of the original Warner Bros. sheet music book for "A Nod is as Good as a Wink to a Blind Horse" (Ebay?) the transcription for "Stay with Me" is actually very, very good. (even if it is notated as the left hand piano part...)

    I've got a copy somewhere (storage space?) and I remember learning most of the album from that book.

    For anyone who doesn't know, published sheet music, especially when written for "vocals/piano" are usually notoriously bad, or just plain wrong, especially for guitar & bass parts. For some reason, this one example is the exception to the rule.

    From memory, on the main verse (chords A to B to D), you play variations of a basic pattern over each of the three chords:

    root - 7b - 6 - 5 - 3(major) - 5

    followed by the cool little break (chords E- D - A)

    root - slide up to 6 - 6 - 6 - 6 - 5 - 3

    Its really not that difficult, a few different parts that follow the chord changes. when you've got this one down, try "Maggie Mae" - that should blow your mind for a few weeks. (true "lead bass")

    I had a few "Song Books" from the day...never had The Faces one, though.
