This is a tab for Jorma's lead guitar part for ESKIMO BLUE DAY (1969). I tried to get it 
correct as possible, but you have to remember they always played their songs 
live. So have fun playing around with it. The solo is in Am Pentatonic (seeing 
Paul plays Am chords).

Verse four: it’s crazy, just solo over A minor Pentatonic somewhat dissonantly.

Solo: more improv on Am Pentatonic. I like to end it with this, which is what Jorma does 
the live Woodstock version:
