Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
                            Electric Ladyland
                       Jimi Hendrix & The Experience
                                   1968
                            Transcriber:Skech
                             Tuning: EbAbDbGbBbeb
                               Length:5:13
****************************************************************************
Most of the other tabs were wrong, so here is the way I play it. The beginning
is mute-noted strumming with a Wah pedal. If you don’t have a Wah, then you won’t
be able to play this song like it is on the CD, but you can improvise… with volume
swells and pickup changes. Tuning is a half a step down, but it can be played at
standard tuning. My timing isn't 100%, so get a feel by listening to the record.
[ ^ = pedal to the metal]
****************************************************************************

INTRO:(With Wah)

*******************************************************************************
That should get you started, I’ve worked hard on this and I hope that it helps.
The rest of the song is kind of repetitive from stuff before, other than the final

solo where he kind of goes nuts with the Wah (which I only just started messing
around with). So, hope you have fun playing it; it’s a great song...but remember
to keep rocking, and keep it about the music, peace.
*******************************************************************************
PS: Please Rate, its my first tab and I would like to know how I did.
