Third Stone From The Sun

Animated Third Stone From The Sun tab by Jimi Hendrix on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

An absolutely great track from the master himself - Jimi Hendrix. This is the wonderful 'Open' E shape octaves part that lilts over the majestic bass guitar.

This is from the 'Are You Experienced Album'...a true classic in terms of guitar history and innovation. The Lyrics to this song are just nuts, but I know many who would agree with his sentiments on surf music.

Notice that when playing these octaves the first finger holding the note on the A string also is used to mute the D string next to it. This is because if played it would sound quite nasty in places.

To do this hold down the note and then lower your finger just enough to touch the adjacent D string - but not enough to fret it and make the note sound when you play the chord.
