About the fourth bar;


Listening to the song it sounds like the slide is much lower, and he is sliding down. Anyone have anything that sounds a little closer.

Try putting emphasis on different notes, instead of all of 'em.

Screw what i said about the key, the key was in a different tab i looked at =P. Anyway this tab is stolen either from the book or taborama... and he just changed the opening statements made by the tabber/book, and got rid of the key...

April 25 2006, 01:45 am by acoustic87 |
I think that this has been overposted but I have to agree with everyone else that the intro is played like this
That's how my guitar taught it to me because he didn't like the way this tab had it. Still this a very good tab. The hard part is getting the strumming pattern down for the verse. Good tab.

Hendrix is NOT dead he is living in an penthouse flat with Elvis and Hitler (they dont get on so well) in an tiny village in russia!
also I would play the beggining like so...........

It is easier on little hands!

July 27 2006, 10:25 pm by LongLiveRock628 |
hendrix will never die. have any of u seen sandlot

"heroes r remembered, but legends never die"-the guy who play babe ruths spirit

September 10 2006, 07:36 am by i<3myteli |
ok...intro's wrong, i have about 10 dvds of him playing this particular song, and he plays it almost the same in every one which is not this way ( every exact note that is ) it is pretty much it though. and for everybody thats left a comment of how to play it on this is wrong, once again 10 dvds. anyway props to tabber
+2   September 10 2006, 03:11 pm by Jon101791 |
Wow Ok look, Jimi played this song in London in 1967 he played it a halfstep down from Eb Now then he played more often with the key of Eb AND thereafter the most recent purple hazes that u hear are in standard
There is no real "Correct" way to tune to purple haze
10 dvds wow didn't know they made tat many on jimi, Well i don't know what your watching but the intro is the same on all purple haze that he played, The intro like 6 8 6 8 w/e How EVER jimi did play it once live where the intro was all weird and way diffferent (he mustve been like fukin stoned ;) But other than that i dun know what the hell ur talking about
+1   September 10 2006, 03:12 pm by Jon101791 |
Yea i read up there it says jimi used his thumb and thats correct Jimi if u didn't notice has Bigger than normal hands so he could use his thumb as you could say a 5th finger, how awsome is that :D

OH the tab yes the tab is very good

My favorite songs by jimi Prly are
1. Machine Guns
2.Purple Haze
3.Hey Joe
4.Little Wing
and Voodoo child
I like every jimi song but those are the ones that really stick out MAchine guns was on of his best with the band of gypsies too bad they only made one appearance

heh im bored so im making alot of posts He he he oh and about the open strings thing, Jimi knew what he was doing , he didn't get sloppy those open strings do blend with the melody or w/e

Jimi hendrix doesn't get sloopy ;) im not argueing so don't fuss at me or anything :D

Jimi Hendrix RIP

^^^ Thats mostly the same, but i like that slide u added in there
September 10 2006, 10:16 pm by Jon101791 |
There really is no right way to play the verse i mean u hit any note as long as u want Which jimi ofcourse focused on the higher notes in the chord by strummin them more But w/e makes yall happy ;)

See Paintitblack is one of those people who will become famous cuz he likes everything in detail :D

He he im rambling on w/e nice tab D

its all wrong! there not enough tab the frets are wrong listen to the song then try and play this.
September 15 2006, 11:51 pm by DJG_GNR |
Amzing Tab!:) And to anyone who disses Eric Clapton or Jimi Hendrix, hear me out.. Its not the skill they had (which was amazing) it wasn't even the things they did (Jimi Burnt his guitars, played with his tougne, behind his head etc.) but for the love of god he started the electric guitar world! Van Halen and Slash are my two favorite guitarists and they both admitted in interviews "without analyzing Jimi and his work.. we would not be where we are today"

So when u diss Jimi, ur dissing all the greats!!

Sounds quite accurate but.. something doesn't seem right with it. The intro's slightly off at places.
-1   March 9 2007, 08:41 am by VSG |
Great Tab!

The song is NOT played a 1/2-step lower. It is standard tuning.

The intro is:


That IS the way to play it. The BASS is playing E octaves (7 & 9 on the A & G strings).

The rest of the intro is CORRECT!! Except for one minor thing - The "3" is actually a G (3 on the E string) in the 8th bar.

For those that say it doesn't sound right, work on your timing.

There is a second gutiar that bends the 15th fret on the E string and then slides down a few times.

For the verse/chorus part, that is CORRECT as well. You don't necessarily need to hit all the notes exactly. Experiment with it, I'm sure Jimi played it slightly differently each time as well. One note is to use your thumb on the low E string. This leaves your pinky free to do the hammer-on's and pull offs while still holding the chord shape.

Everything up to the solo is PERFECT! I can't comment on the solo, since I haven't learned it yet.

Someone posted this:

That is a guitar that is playing the same note as the lead only sped way up.

March 24 2007, 11:18 am by stratsound8 |
the beginning was good i guess but after that it does not go on that long and there is no way it is played like that it sounds horrible
April 7 2007, 03:11 pm by mfkr |
Theres bits in the intro that sound wrong, and from playing this version and version 2 through, version 2 sounds more correct to me. Personally I like playing exactly what the guitarist did, I know sometimes its impossibile. I can't be sure which is correct tbh.
April 21 2007, 09:38 am by El Gigante |
i played through the song, and the intro is wrong

with crybaby
April 23 2007, 08:54 pm by thechuckmaster |
this intro was taken from the jimi hendrix book, so it is 100% correct, and the 5-7 isn't a slide its a hammer on if you could read sheet music u would know too

This is an awesome tab! The solo is great. The beginning may sound a bit sketchy but its right. Hendrix plays:
And the bass play plays the octave of that riff. Im not really sure what that is cause I don't play bass.

kudos to you for this one. and kudos to jimmy and the group for writing this. If you play this using a... can't remember. dang. I guess a "wow" pedal (thats the sound it makes) it sounds awesome.

Why did you overdose Jimi? Why? Well at least we still got Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana. Anyone who says Santana
isn't a legend needs to listen to some good classic Rock.

try tabbing the woodstock version with the awsome solo at the end one of my favorite solos ever is the woodstock version

The idea of 666-Joe-666 sound very good if you play
instead of
-4   March 11 2008, 06:13 pm by Afroman30000 |
Instead of the keys G and A, shouldn't it be the chords A7 and B7 after the E7#9?

Play -575655 (A7)- instead of -355433 (G)-
And play -799877 (B7)- instead of -577655 (A)-

I'm just throwing this out there, I'm not sure if it's the right way, but it's how I was taught to play it.
-3   March 13 2008, 01:25 pm by Afroman30000 |
Sorry, B7 is 797877.
Made a little mistake there.

lets not all forget bout the great Jimmy Page. But Jimi will never be topped he is dead, but lives in our hearts with his awesome music. He will never die in the world of music.

Dudes, someone said he tunes a hafl step dwn for this. He only does that live, on the album he tunes to standerd.

wtf the solo is messed up :-(
-2   August 3 2008, 06:30 pm by kenifh |
FAO everyone arguing about tuning: The man himself used normal and 1/2-step down. And would probably have played it in baritone tuning, if asked to. Also, if you wanna be really cool, play Immigrant Song to lead into this:


Or something like that. Jazz it up a bit obviously.
*prays that looks right when he hits submit*
August 18 2008, 02:03 am by Mondo Generator |
Excellent tab! 4 stars, because the intro had some mistakes.
I find that with Hendrix songs, you kind of need to change it to however feels good to you. I think they are supposed to be that way. The songs are very open to improvisation and added stuff. That's part of why it's so fun to play his songs.
+1   September 9 2008, 05:44 pm by Paddyo3584 |
Great tab. Hendrix Lives. He and Bob Marley are forming a supergroup and are hard at work recording an album. 2pac may appear on it also.
-2   September 30 2008, 09:47 am by TheTroy |
the intro is wrong. he uses what i think is called a tri-tone.


it sounds much more correct now. and it is 100% right

Great tabs.

I'm tired of rap and all that crud nowadays...

Anyway, not to change subject, but I also love the song Knights of Cydonia by Muse. It is amazing. Look up the tabs, then listen to it on Jango.

i kind of think jimi was high when he wrote the lyrics to this awesome song
November 29 2008, 08:00 pm by Vasser |
Is this in standard or flat? I've heard Jimi always used flat, and it sounds best in that tuning.

I dont see how this tab is only 4 stars when its copied straight out the book I have in front of me
+6   April 13 2009, 11:30 am by Qatwar |
Alright, I will explain the intro to everyone who doesn't understand why it sounds strange. It is tabbed correctly with the Bb's, but Jimi and the bassist who's name I cannot remember have dubbed underneath with an E7 chord. so it sounds like the tab is wrong but it is absolutely correct. Hope that solves all the confusion
May 17 2009, 09:41 pm by hanselrocks1 |
ya that clears it up thanks qatwar oh btw great tab 5 *s
June 4 2009, 05:46 am by Migelino |
wow...this is the only right tab of purple haze ive ever seen. no-one else can seem to tab this song

nice work mate!
June 4 2009, 05:57 am by Migelino |
lol even though im gonna contradict my last comment, this is actually supposed to be played in Eb tuning. (Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, eb)
some might disagree, but listen to this link on youtube:
the tabs are right, just play it in Eb tuning
-2   July 1 2009, 03:52 pm by Puffboy92 |

that just sounds better to me. i dont know if its just me or what so ppl check it out see what u think
July 20 2009, 07:02 pm by VincentLauw |
@Migelino: The recording for the video is in Eb... The recording on the album is in E.
August 10 2009, 09:26 am by conor-figgy |
It's half step, and the fuss over the intro, it is right, but the bass player is ALSO playing an octave, that's why it sounds different. Hope this helps. Great tab.

you wanna have the open e in the intro so i advise

a-1---1- etc. (if you cant hid the 0/3 chord strummming,
pluck it wit a finge r when you hit open e)
February 4 2010, 07:28 pm by SMILEYSIXX |
Good except beginning. You tabbed an octave. The intro is a devil's third.
+1   February 4 2010, 07:30 pm by SMILEYSIXX |
Forgot something. About the whole tuning deal, Hendrix always played in Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb.

God can't die my ass. Remember that thing that Catholics bitch at Jew's about? It's called killing god ON THE CROSS.
Hendrix is a god. He's teaching people in Heaven how to play guitar being why he hasn't risen back to life yet.
And don't compare Clapton to Hendrix. You embarrass both of you by doing so.
June 15 2011, 08:15 pm by Rpatush |
kick ass keep up the good work plus my guitar is tuned down a half-step for when I play STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN OR JIMI HENDRIX. it sounds BADASS

this is just how i play the intro it seems to be more correct
and u know the rest do the second part twice.

E |------------------------|
B |------------------------|
G |------------------------|
D |--5--------------------|
A |-----5-----5/7--------|

I think it's better to play it like this -

G |------------------------|
D |--5--0-----------------|
A |-----------5/7---------|
E |--------0---------------|

Yeah it'd the G instead of C note isn't it?
February 27 2016, 08:53 pm by antkeogh |
It's the same notes but on bar 4 lick it sounds good to go:

5/0------- (pull off)
-------0/7 (hammer on)
April 2 2016, 09:50 pm by Tacotrain1 |
The very end of the intro is wrong, the second to last measure is an octave to high
