standard tuning-play as follows


(Jim Morrison Spoken Word)



Harpsichord intro adapted for guitar in Harpsichord/Piano absence; clean tone
----0---0------0---0-------0---0-------0---0]
--------------------------------------------]
-2---------0--------------------------------]
-----------------------4-----------2--------]
--------------------------------------------]
--------------------------------------------]

just play over and over again and the fill about midway in this part is as follows:

---------------0---0-----0---0------0----------]
-----------------------------------------------]
--2po0-ho2-------------------------------------]          *********************
-----------2----------2---------2--------------]          **continued below**
-----------------------------------------------]          *********************

ho=Hammer on    po=Pull off


---------------0---0--0--------------------------]
-------------------------------------------------]
--2po0-ho2---------------0--2--0--2----0---2---0-]
------------2------------------------2-----------]
-------------------------------------------------]
-------------------------------------------------]

then continue riff 1 until section switch

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Next section-section 2; Use mild chorus and heavy phaser

-1--------1--------------1--------------1----1/3-]
-2------2---2----------2---2----------2---2--2/4-]
-3----3-------3------3-------3------3--------3/5-]
-3--3-----------3--3-----------3--3----------3/5-]
-------------------------------------------------]
-------------------------------------------------]

repeat as needed

solo riff is quite simple; as follows

---------------7--5--------5-----------5---7-------------]
--------5--7---------7-------7---------------------------]
--5--7-------------------------7--5--7-------------------]
---------------------------------------------------------]
-----------------------------------------------5\3--3po0-]
---------------------------------------------------------]

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

skip softer part-no guitar

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

main riff-slight overdrive

----------------------------------]
----------------------------------]
----------------------------------]
-2-----2-----2 2ho5-5po2-----2----]
-----2-----2----------------------]
---0-----0----------------0----0--]

listen to recording-tempo changes faster-when it does this riff can be substituted-
see song for exact timing

-----X----X--X--X-X-X-X
-----8----8--8--X-X-X-X
-----8----8--8--X-X-X-X
-----6----6--6--X-X-X-X
-----X----X--X--X-X-X-X
-----7----7--7--X-X-X-X

The chord is known as the Hendrix Chord-it is a dominant 7#9 chord-it is refered 
to as the Hendrix Chord because it is most famously used in Jimi Hendrix's song Purple Haze

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

for a live ending of the song, just slow down the tempo after the end on the 
recording to about 20 bpm, then just have the drummer smash the cymbols and guitar/
bass/keyboard play an E chord
