Killing Floor by Jimi Hendrix

Tabs with lyrics

Note - This is my first attempt at transcribing this awesome song... I
posted messages on usenet requesting this song and when i received no
replies i decided to try to work it out. This version is in Chord diagramA augmentedA minor (which
I think is the key Jimi played it in, if you want to play along with Jimi
then you'll have to downtune half a step to Chord diagramEb MajorEb).  I find this is a good
type of song to jam with heaps of guitarists as there are always too many
guitarists so you can use 3 with this...

       - one doing the lead riffs
       - one doing the 12 bar blues
       - one soloing

Alternate so the poor guy doing the 12 bar blues doesn't fall asleep.  I
can't describe the timing but basically play it as fast as you can.

The order goes like this:


Intro : Start off with some small solo then do riff 1
(no 12 bar blues behind this riff, it's the turn around riff)

:beginning

riff 2

riff 2

riff 3

riff 2

riff 4
goto beginning

then repeat this pattern until you're sick of hearing it.
