Guitar tabs with lyrics

Who Knows --- By Jimi Hendrix --- From the album BAND OF GYPSYS
(Captitol Records) <- Incase you care about the record company :)


This is a cool tune from Jimi Hendrix - When they played
New Year's Eve (69-70) at Fillmore East in New York. This album
had been out of print for ages, but all of a sudden, BOOM! It was
remastered. So you can probably find it now. This is the opening tune,
WHO KNOWS.

Tabbed by spam@conval.edu
     Tune Down 1/2 Step (Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, A chord diagramEb MajorEb)


     These are just bits, from memory, so don't pillage and burn
me if this is wrong:


Main/Opening Riff

                          ~~     ~~~
E----------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------
G---------------------------------10-----------------------------
D-12-12-12-10-12-10----------------------------------------------
A-------------------12-11-10-(10)--------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------


     Eventually, after the band kicks in, the whole riff is played
down an octave lower, like this:

               ~~~~~  ~
E-----------------------------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------------------------------------------
G-----------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------3-------------------------------------------
A-5-5-5-3---------------------------------------------------------
E---------5-4-3(3)(3)---------------------------------------------

This is a really cool lick, becuase there are MANY variations you can
make on it!  Listen to all the variations hendrix made.

The solo is in A chord diagramDbDb (10th fret) on the minor petonic scale. Tabbing it out
would be rather pointless, its a great solo, but its just not a good solo
to copy.  Listen and make an improv on it. This can be a great excercise
for your lead skills. Listen to the story jimi tells with the solo, and
then try to tell your own story with it. At first, its just plain guitar,
then guitar with WAh, and after the vocal cameo, is that guitar wah and
octavia? I think it's guitar wah and octavia. Then there is also some
cool harmonic stuff. I'm not sure how hendrix did it, but you can do it
with tapped picked harmonics.(Hold your finger one octave above note, and
pick with free fingers.)

Anyway, this will get you started.  If you used this at all, send email to
spam@conval.edu. Thanks!
