    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 chord diagramA augmentedA 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 A chord diagramE MajorE 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.

Chris

PS: Mail me if you wanna talk/trade hendrix info/tab/anything at all.

   JIMI HENDRIX
    Voodoo Chile - slight return (few parts)

Only an attempt! Don't expect too much.
When you get the basic feel you can
improvise, and it can sound close to Jimi.

Notation:
 h - hammer on
 p - pull off
 b - bend
 bd - bend down
