RED HOUSE   Jimi Hendrix

Keywords:  "I still got my guitar"--I like it, by gum!





A friend of mine told me this was the way to go as far as playing
the intro and solo to "Red House."

I'm afraid I've forgotten the latter part of the solo (the good part), and
the problem of figuring out how to play Hendrix wail 'n distort is more than
my equal.

Anyway, what do ya want fer nothin'?

My notation is:

	/	a slide
	~	wiggle yer fingers
	h	hammer on
	p	pull off
	'	bend
	-	buy SubG (that's me) lots of beer

..then Mr. Hendrix commences to sing whilst he's playing lead, which is
more than I can say for myself.

The lyrics are:

	There's a red house over yonder.
	That's where my baby stays.
	Lord, there's a red house over yonder,
	Lord, that's where my baby stays.
	I ain't been home to see my baby
	In ninety-nine and one half days.

	Wait a minute, something's wrong here,
	The key won't unlock this door.
	Wait a minute, something's wrong,
	Lord have mercy, this key won't unlock this door.
	Something's gone wrong here--
	I have a bad, bad feeling
	That my baby don't live here no more.

	That's alright--I still got my guitar.


  Look out, now!

At the ..., Hendrix repeats the 10p7, 7 lick a bunch of times, then
does a bit or two that I've got no idea how to play, then sings:

	Well, I might as well go back over yonder
	Way back among the hills.
	Yeah, that's what I'm gonna do.
	Lord, I might as well go back over yonder
	Way back yonder acorss the hills.

	Even if my baby don't l_v_ me no more,
	I know her sister will.


Now play a little blues "see ya" riff, and then play something else.

Beer forever,
