Jimi Hendrix – Fire

Here’s the intro tab for Fire (including the short riff that crops up through the song):

Listening to this, I think I should have included it in my Top 10 Guitar Riffs. It boggles my mind that just four notes can be so effective. If you don’t fancy playing the riff as it’s tabbed above, you can also play it like this:

The chords are simple: D and C for the chorus. There’s also an A just before the guitar solo and it shifts up to E – D for a few bars near the end.

Hendrix tuned his guitar down one fret, so if you want to play along you’ll have to do the same with your uke.
