This is a classic from Jimi Hendrix called Little Wing.   
It's just the beginning part, but thats probably the only  
part people remember it by.  On the album there is no  
background he just plays this by himself with a clean sound. 
It takes some patience to learn it and after you learn it  
you need to put some feel into it.  The X's stand for a  
string mute. Just mute the strings and strum all of them. 
The > stands for a finger slide either up or down the string, 
depending on what side of the note it is on.  The ^ stands 
for a hammer-on or a pulloff, again, depending on what note 
it is going to.  This is a pretty accurate transcription. 
Email me at:  [email protected]  and let me know 
what you think.  Any criticism is welcome, but hey, go easy, 
I'm only 15 years old and bad criticism could have an effect 
on me later in life, or so they say.  Anyway, hope you enjoy, 
look forward to hearing from you.

Ok, here is most of little wing by Hendrix, if you can make sense of it.  
I didn't want to write out the chords under the lyrics because someone else 
did that already. If you just listen to the record, you'll get it. Feel free 
to submit this to Nevada, I would if I knew how. Revisions welcome (as if  
someone would get pissed if one re-wrote the tab and did a better job of it) 
has anyone heard SRV's version off The Sky is Crying? Man is it awesome.  
Sorry no solo. Anyways, here it is.

For the solo, all I know is the all important b--15b--15b--15--12-15-12--| 
at the start, and then just improv an e minor pent. with the verse playing  
for rhythm. 
 
P.S. Please please, somebody do the solo.

Jimi Hendrix 
Little Wing (axis: bold as love) 
Transcribed by: Lukas (Luesche) Kamber, [email protected] 
 
This is Jimi Hendrix' beautiful Little Wing. I copied the Intro from  
[email protected] (Thanks a lot, it's quite the hardest part), and  
took the lyrics from [email protected] (Ed Cummings) (thanks). 
I also transcribed the solo, which didn't take me long and isn't hard to 
play. But the licks he plays with the lyrics and with the solo were really 
hard to transcribe and it took me hours. So if you have some changes, I would 
be pleased if you sent them to me.
