Artist		Jimi Hendrix
Track		Up From the Skies
Album		Axis Bold As Love

Guitar is tuned down half a tone ie E=Eb  A=Ab  D=Db ect

Yep, get your wah wah pedal out, spark up and let it flow! This is a really atypical Hendrix tune, but is nevertheless one of my favourites. And it's quite simple too!




B9		F#7	      
 I just want to talk to you. 

B9		F#7	
I won't uh, do you no harm,

B9	        F#7	     
 I just want to know about 


B9		F#7	
your different lives, 


B9		F#7	
on this here people farm.
   


B9	C9	     	      F#7
 I heard some of you got your families, 

B9	C9	     	      F#7
living in cages tall & cold,

B9	C9	     	      F#7 
 And some just stay there and dust away, 

B9	C9	     	      F#7
past the age of old.


B9      C9            F#7 
is this true? 

B9      C9            F#7
Please let me talk to you.

   
C#9      D9              G#7
I just wanna know about, 

C#9      D9              G#7
the rooms behind your minds,

C#9      D9              G#7
Do I see a vacuum there, 

C#9      D9              G#7
or am I going blind?

C#9      D9              G#7
Or is it just remains from vibrations

C#9      D9              G#7
and echoes long ago,

C#9      D9              G#7
Things like 'Love the World'

C#9      D9              G#7
and 'Let your fancy flow',


B9      C9            F#7
Is this true? 

B9      C9            F#7
Please let me talk to you.

B9      C9            F#7
Let me talk to you.


C5  C#5
I have lived here before,

C5  B5
the days of ice,

C5  C#5
And of course this is why 

C5  B5
I'm so concerned,

C9  C#9
And I come back to find 

C9  B9
the stars misplaced

C9  C#9
and the smell of a world

C9  B9 
that has burned.



(Solo)                                      
The smell of a world that has burned.
     
Well, maybee, maybe it's just a change of 

climate.

C#7				 E7#9
I can dig it, I can dig it baby, I just want to see.

B9             F#7
So where do I purchase my ticket,

B9             F#7
I would just like to have a ringside seat,

B9             F#7

 I want to know about the new Mother Earth,

B9             F#7
 I want to hear and see everything,

B9             F#7
 I want to hear and see everything,

B9             F#7
 I want to hear and see everything.
 Aw, shucks,
 If my daddy could see me now.


Generally speaking Jimi rocks his pedal at a constant pace, like you would if you were tapping your foot along with the music. The actual rhythm ebbs and flows and changes in a real jazzy way, so you'll need to listen to the track. The chord change from B9 to C9 (and likewise from C#9 to D9) in particular changes in form and timing and is sometimes even omitted. So basically as with all tunes by improvisationally inspired artists it's best just to do your own thing!
