Spanish Castle Magic Tab

   
I was tired of seeing the crap that other people were sending in for this song, so I
decided to tab the song myself. This is my first tab, ever, so forgive me for any
mistakes I make. This is one of my   absolute favorite Hendrix songs, really great
riffs. Hope you enjoy.

Rock on.

RIP Jimi.
