All Along The Watch Tower (a la Hendrix)
========================================
Words and Music by Bob Dylan
Transcribed to tab by 
Dave Crowson, London, UK. September 1994 
(weirdguy@cix.compulink.co.uk)

(4/4 time, moderate rock, tune down 1/2 step)

The timings you'll have to get from the song as this tab 
isn't written with the correct bar spacing in mind, nor does it
specify the timeperiod of the note..you'll just have to work that
out for yourself.

It's jus' a rough guide really ;-)

(Please note this was compiled as straight ASCII, so using proportional
fonts to view it won't make it look very nice)
