Subject: Re: TAB REQUEST : HEY JOE by Hendrix   


First tune all your strings down a half-step.  Then...

     h p     
E|-0-0-0------------|----------------|--------------|-
B|-3-5-3------------|----------------|--------------|-
G|-------2-0--------|----------------|--------------|-5
D|-----------2-----2|---5----5---4--2|-----7-----7--|-5
A|---------------2--|---5----5---4--2|-7-9---7-9---7|-3
E|-------------0----|-0----0---0----0|--------------|-0
               ^
               Let ring


After the intro it just goes into this progression:

C  G  D  Am E5 E5  (Em7 or what ever, you can alter it)

If you play along with the song you'll get the timing down.  The "h" and "p"
are for "h"amer on and "p"ull off.

see ya

                            --------------------

                                         Performed by Jimi Hendrix Experience

                                         Tabbed by Howard Wright

Ok I'll just give you a flavour here with the intro :

E--0----0------------------0---------------------------0------------
B--3/5--3------------------0---------------------------0------------
G----------4/2--0----------1---------------------------1------------
D------------------2-------2------4/5---4/5---4--2-------------------
A------------------------2--------4/5---4/5---4--2-------------------
E---------------------0--------0------0-----0-------0-----0----------


E----------------------
B--------7-----7-------
G--------7-----7-------
D----7h9---7h9---9----
A----------------------
E----------------------

The rest is :

C G D A E

repeated and repeated.....

Obviously there are a lot of bits played between the chords to liven it 
up. The two riffs at the end of the intro bit are used quite a few times 

-the first one is the  4/5  slide on the A and D strings
                       4/5   

-the second is the bit at the 7th and 9th frets on the second line of tab


Then there's that run played in octaves on bass and guitar.
The Bass tab looks exactly the same as the guitar tab (ignoring B and E 
strings !)

E--------------------------------------------------------------

G--------------------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------------------
A--3---------2-3-4-5---------4-5-6-7----------------------------
E----0-1-2-3---------2-3-4-5------------------------------------


Have Fun !

   Lyrics:

   Hey Joe. Where you goin' with that gun in your hand.
   Said, Hey Joe. Where you goin' with that gun in your hand.
   I'm goin' down to shoot my old lady,
   you know I caugth her messin' round with another man.
   I'm goin' down to shoot my old lady,
   you know I caught her messin' round with another man.
   (Ain't that too cool.)

   Hey Joe. I heard you shot your woman down,
   you shot her down now.
   Hey Joe. I heard you shot your old woman down,
   you shot her down in the ground.
   Yes I did, I shot her,
   you know I caught her messin' round with another man.
   Oh yes I did i shot her,
   you know I caught my old lady messin round town.
   (And I gave her the gun - I shot her !).
