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

                                 HEY JOE
                            --------------------

                                         Performed by Jimi Hendrix Experience

                                         Tabbed by Howard Wright
                                         spxhaw@uk.ac.cf.thor


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


Have Fun !
