                             The Wind Cries Mary - Jimi Hendrix
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Ryan Hawthorn

This is how I play The Wind Cries Mary by the legendary Jimi Hendrix. Work out the
timing by listening to the song. This is damn near 100% perfect and if it's not 100%
it sure sounds good. I play the song on the clean channel on the rhythm pickup. 

Tuning: EADGBe

chord but work it out for yourself)
