I Don't Live Today

Jimi Hendrix

I Don't Live Today Written by Jimi Hendrix Originally Recorded by The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Tabs by Danny Navarro Thanks, Danny!

The Intro has heavy distortion. With feedback around G & F. Tune down 1/2 step to Eb. The intro riff is this:
E---------------------------------II B---------------(3)-(3)----------II G--------3---(3)-(3)---3---5--II D-3--5--------------------------II A---------------------------------II E---------------------------------II ~~ Play this riff 4 times Main riff:
Will I live tomorrow?!........
E-----------------------------II B-----------------------------II G-3-3-----------------------II D--------5--3-3-------------II A-----------------3-3~~~---II E------------------------------II ~~ This riff is played and changed around a bit
from line to line in the song. The changes are:
E-------------------------------II B-------------------------------II G--3-3------------------------II D--------5--3-3---------------II A-----------------3-1~~~----II ~~ And the other change is:
E-------------------------------II B-------------------------------II G-3-3----------------5~~~---II D------5--3-3-----------------II A----------------3-------------II E-------------------------------II ~~The changes are very subtle. Just listen to the song, and you'll get it right!
The "I DONT.... LIVE TODAY!" part is:
E--------------------------------------II B--(10)--(10)-----------(10)--(10)------II G--(10)--(10)-----------(10)--(10)------II D-------------------------------------II A-------------------------------------II E--------------------------------------II ~~Do a 1/4 bend each time the chord is hit. SLASH is doing some other little runs within the pauses but they're mostly add-here notes. So, just hit a note in the area and if it sounds right, it's most likely right!
Notation: the (7)(7) or (3)-(3) thing means its a chord and both the notes are struck together! The ~~~~ means to sustain the note!
The song is pretty cool! I really dig jamming along the radio to it! Slash is amazing on this one! He is really getting into it. So, play with a lot of feeling like he does, and it'll be pretty easy!
