NOTES:
1.  “…In 2014, VH1 deemed The Cry of Love "the greatest posthumous classic rock record of all time". 
That same year, it was reissued in both CD and LP formats by Experience Hendrix.…”
2.  My interpretation of this song in this TAB, only tries to capture the essential chords, not the 
colourful flourishes of the lead riffs.  'Trust that you'll enjoy, this?  :-R
