"Angel" from Jimi Hendrix.
by Erik Klein (kleine@cs.utwente.nl) from the Netherlands.

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. Eb |0--0-------0------------0---|0---------------0-----------|

ANGEL		
Jimi Hendrix

Caveat emptor  - since this is from memory. 

I don't guarantee that these are the exact same chords that 
Hendrix played, but it should give the basic structure.

I'm using mxrn here which, on including the plain text file,
has mangled the relationship of the words to the chords (so
much for the benefits of proportional fonts!). I'll leave the entry as it is,
though, on the basis that it can still be accessed as plain text.

IMHO its a beautiful song. Have fun with it...........

Nick

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

C                 | Eb       | G     |  G        |
The she spread her wings high over me....she said

Playing Guide:
--------------

The Db-Eb-E-F chords in the Db-Bb-Eb-E-F sequence can be a bit tricky 
if you finger the 2nd, 3rd, 4th strings with separate fingers. One
trick is to play this shape using just the 1st and 3rd fingers of
the left hand. This way you can get the chord onto the fingerboard
a lot quicker, although you tend to lose the notes on the top two 
strings because you can't usually bend the 3rd finger back far enough.

I can already tell you that the verses aren't right. Jimi never once used a full chord in his songs.
