Purple Haze by Jimi Hendix
Recorded and Released by Jimi in early 1967
This was his second single that peaked at Number 3 in UK charts.
Original Bassist: Noel Redding
Tabbed by bass50611. Think is more or less what Noel Redding
played on original recording. Guitar starts in Bb over first bit.

Great tab. Just a note that the intro is octave E's like you have as the 'second part' the whole time. The guitar is playing the Bb lick with the bass doing the E lick. Cheers

This is way more accurate AND groovier than the currently most popular bass tab of this song on UG. Great work!
