                "(1)
Tuning: 1/2 step down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)

I just put the main parts you can understand. Since
Jimi changes the psychotic madness with the whammy
each time I'm not going to really put down the parts where
he goes of on the 'solos'. This is just like he plays it though. 
With all the extreme bends and vibrato! Also, Jimi uses a lot of 
feedback in various areas in this version. 

Tab Key =
b = full step bend or more 
v = vibrato (with the whammy bar or with your fingers)
~ = let note ring or sustain
h = hammer on 
p = pull off
/slide up
\slide down

·	= use the wah pedal if you want to (sounds pretty cool)
·	= Whenever you se bv~ that means a very rapid bend and                     
     vibrato to get a whammy bar sound. And you should go
     off every now and then into some heavy feedback solo
     kind of thing. Listen to his version to get the idea
     of how to improve this stuff.

This below is a cool little slide. The v = whammy bar vibrato. 
7/9bv = is a quick slide from 7 to 9 then bend and vibrate.
