[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jimi_hendrix/little_wing_tab_ver_2.html ]
F#         C#6                  G#m                
And she told me a story yesterday

B                        E         
About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea

B                           D              F#
The she spread her wings high over me....she said

G#m               A#m                 
I'll come back again to see you tomorrow

B     Bsus
      And I said


E                       F#m7/E            
Fly on my sweet angel

C    A    D        D#  E
Fly on through the sky

E                       F#m7/E   
Fly on my sweet angel

C             A              D   D#      E
Tomorrow I'm 'gonna be by your side

Sure enough to this woman came home to me
Silver wings silhouetted against a child's sunrise
And my angel she said unto me
today is the day for you to rise
Take my hand come you're gonna be my man
and she took me high over yonder

Well, I don't know how the tab is going to look, since I only wrote it
in Windows Notepad. But if you line up the chords and bars vertically, 
all the licks should fall into place. This song was originally played through
a Leslie speaker, but sounds fine through a phaser or flanger.


I've only tabbed the intro yet. The rest will follow later.
The whole song is played with the guitar tuned down a half step.
A Leslie is used to get the 'spacy sound'. This effect can be emulated with a chorus
pedal at a medium slow rate.
