Ball And Biscuit (ver. 3)

  		AKA The Adoration of Jimi. :S 
 
=======================================================================

     E7     p.m.           A7                   B7 
 
Standard blues form: e/e/a/e/b/a 
 
Although this is the main riff tabbed out, you must pay attention to  
Jack! There is an interesting mix of sloppy playing (i.e. loose  
strumming, hitting odd notes) and precision (the open B and E string  
double stops are usually pretty spot-on (initially, at least). Have fun,  
anyway. Nothing is set in stone. These are all building blocks. There  
are variations, e.g.: 
 
----0-0-0-----|------------------|--------------------- 
------3-0-----|----3-p-2---------|--------------------- 
-----(1)------|-2--2-----2p0-2p0-|--------------------- 
--------------|-2--------2---2---|----etc.------------- 
-2------------|-0----------------|--------------------- 
-0------------|------------------|--------------------- 
 
There is also a bass-thing (octave pedal again?), going:

||-7---7-5--7----|| 
||-------------3-|| 
 
 
 
SOME FILLS 
 
Jack plays some nice fills here and there, here are the first 5 in order  
that they appear: 
 
||---------------------||--------||--------||----------------||--3b4-|| 
||-(0)-----------------||-3b-p-0-||-0-h-1~-||-(0)------------||-x----|| 
||-/4~4-4\-2-p-0-------||--------||--------||-/4~4-4\-2-p-0--||------|| 
||---------------2-p-0-||--------||--------||----------------||------||

LITTLE DESCENDING RIFF 
 
(Let's have a ball and a biscuit....) 
 
||------0-(0)---0-0----0-0------0------------|| 
||----0-------------------------0-(0)--------|| 
||------------3------2------0h1---(1)(1)-----|| 
||-----------------------------------(0)--0--||

||-0--------------------------------------3--|| 
 
 
 
SOLO 1 
 
The chord going into the solo(s) is a B5: 
 
------ 
------ 
--4--- 
--4--- 
--2--- 
------ 
 
And the rhythm under the solo is E/A/B (basically a bastardised,  
distorto version of the main riff, with less open strings). 
 
 
This isn't totally accurate, but tough. It'll pass. These are the main  
notes, you add eyebrows. In bar 5 there's some crazy flat bends. I'm not  
sure about bar 6, is that an effect or something like I've notated?  
Anyway, it's possible (just about) to play it this way.

There is obviously a lot more to this song, but for a tune that is based  
around improvisation, it seems crazy (and far too much effort) to tab  
all that out. Listen for things you like, then add what you want. 
 
Enjoy Elephant!
