Artist		Jimi Hendrix
Track		Up From the Skies
Album		Axis Bold As Love

Guitar is tuned down half a tone ie E=Eb  A=Ab  D=Db ect

Yep, get your wah wah pedal out, spark up and let it flow! This is a really atypical Hendrix tune, but is 
one of my favourites. And it's quite simple too!

B9		F#7
 I just want to talk to you.

B9		F#7
I won't uh, do you no harm,

B9	        F#7
 I just want to know about

B9		F#7
your different lives,

B9		F#7
on this here people farm.

B9	C9	     	      F#7
 I heard some of you got your families,

B9	C9	     	      F#7
living in cages tall & cold,

B9	C9	     	      F#7
 And some just stay there and dust away,

B9	C9	     	      F#7
past the age of old.

B9      C9            F#7
is this true?

B9      C9            F#7
Please let me talk to you.

C#9      D9              G#7
I just wanna know about,

C#9      D9              G#7
the rooms behind your minds,

C#9      D9              G#7
Do I see a vacuum there,

C#9      D9              G#7
or am I going blind?

C#9      D9              G#7
Or is it just remains from vibrations

C#9      D9              G#7
and echoes long ago,

C#9      D9              G#7
Things like 'Love the World'

C#9      D9              G#7
and 'Let your fancy flow',

B9      C9            F#7
Is this true?

B9      C9            F#7
Please let me talk to you.

B9      C9            F#7
Let me talk to you.

C5  C#5
I have lived here before,

C5  B5
the days of ice,

C5  C#5
And of course this is why

C5  B5
I'm so concerned,

C9  C#9
And I come back to find

C9  B9
the stars misplaced

C9  C#9
and the smell of a world

C9  B9
that has burned.

(Solo)
The smell of a world that has burned.

Well, maybee, maybe it's just a change of

climate.

C#7				 E7#9
I can dig it, I can dig it baby, I just want to see.

B9             F#7
So where do I purchase my ticket,

B9             F#7
I would just like to have a ringside seat,

B9             F#7

I want to know about the new Mother Earth,

B9             F#7
 I want to hear and see everything,

B9             F#7
 I want to hear and see everything,

B9             F#7
 I want to hear and see everything.
 Aw, shucks,
 If my daddy could see me now.

Generally speaking Jimi rocks his pedal at a constant pace, like you would if you were tapping your foot 
with the music. The actual rhythm ebbs and flows and changes in a real jazzy way, so you'll need to listen 
the track. The chord change from B9 to C9 (and likewise from C#9 to D9) in particular changes in form and timing and is sometimes even omitted. So basically as with all tunes by improvisationally inspired artists 
best just to do your own thing!

About the artist behind Up From The Skies Tab:

Jimi Hendrix (November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter whose guitar playing was influential on rock music.[1] After initial success in Europe, he achieved fame in the USA following his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival. Later, Hendrix headlined the iconic 1969 Woodstock Festival.

Hendrix helped develop the technique of guitar feedback with overdriven amplifiers.[2] He was influenced by blues artists such as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Albert King, and Elmore James,[3][4][5][6] rhythm and blues and soul guitarists Curtis Mayfield, Steve Cropper, as well as by some modern jazz.[7]

Carlos Santana has suggested that Hendrix's music may have been influenced by his Native American heritage.[8] As a record producer, Hendrix also broke new ground in using the recording studio as an extension of his musical ideas; he was one of the first to experiment with stereophonic and phasing effects during recording.

Hendrix won many of the most prestigious rock music awards in his lifetime and has been posthumously awarded many more, including being inducted into the USA's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. An English Heritage "Blue plaque" was erected in his name on his former residence at Brook Street, London in September 1997 and his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (at 6627 Hollywood Blvd.) was dedicated in 1994. In 2006, his debut USA album, Are You Experienced, was inducted into the United States National Recording Registry and Rolling Stone named Hendrix the best guitarist on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003.[9]
