Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   ~~~~~~~~~~~~

[Intro]

    This muted wah riff can't be transcribed. I do it with a lot of palm
    muting with slight distortion while muting an e chord on the A string.    
    The same goes for the bits marked x x x in the rest of the intro ...

|     If you play this you will realise it  |
|     is the main riff in the song, just    | 
|     throw this in between parts, it's not |
|     hard to work out where it goes but it |
|     is all through the song ...           |

    This is how the main solo starts... I'm not going to transcribe the
    whole thing but this will get you on track, it's an E minor 
    pentatonic thing so work round that. Mainly the 1st pos at the 12th
    fret...

When i first started (about a year ago) this was the song i most wanted
to learn but was unable to find. Hope it works ok for you.
