Killing Floor - The Jimi Hendrix Version (Originally by Howlin' Wolf)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tabbed by Chris Hoolihan (hool@actrix.gen.nz, hoolih1c@wcc.govt.nz)

Note - This is my first attempt at transcribing this awesome song... I posted
       messages on usenet requesting this song and when i received no replies
       i decided to try to work it out. This version is in A minor (which I
       think is the key Jimi played it in, if you want to play along with Jimi
       then you'll have to downtune half a step to Eb).
       I find this is a good type of song to jam with heaps of guitarists as
       there are always too many guitarists so you can use 3 with this...
       - one doing the lead riffs
       - one doing the 12 bar blues
       - one soloing

       Alternate so the poor guy doing the 12 bar blues doesn't fall asleep.
       I can't describe the timing but basically play it as fast as you can.

Jimi alternates between playing the lead riffs and the 12 bar blues. 12 bar blues in A minor which goes with the riffs - brackets show which riff this section goes with: in this case the chords are A, D and E.

The order goes like this: Intro : Start off with some small solo then do riff 1 (no 12 bar blues behind this riff, it's the turn around riff) :beginning riff 2 riff 2 riff 3 riff 2 riff 4 goto beginning then repeat this pattern until you're sick of hearing it.
