    Hey gang,


    Anyone have the tab or some pointers for that incredible Bold as Love instrumental by Jimi?

    Hoping someone can help me out here a bit.
    Here's the link to a clip of the song....just awesome.

    1) At http://www.note4note.us/n4n_purchasejh.asp

    DVD 303 set features two songs: Bold as Love, and All Along the Watchtower. 24.95 + 6.00 shipping.

    There is no "on screen tab" provided (music licensing issues prevent that), but this instructor goes through note-by-note, in the form of "third string, 5th fret, slide to 7th fret, etc."

    It's laborious to work through, but this form of "vocal tab" covers it all. But it takes a long time to work through! Check out some sample videos to see if this is "your cup of tea." YMMV, of course.

    2) For published tabs, I think the ones in Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix are excellent.

    This is a "transcribed score, providing notation for vocal, multiple guitars (up to 3, in general), bass and drums.

    Andy Aledort did a walk through of the entire Axis Bolad as Love Record on his Guitar World DVD. He takes you step by step through all the leads and rythym parts, but no tab. It's very good. The DVD was $10 when it was on the shelf about a year ago. I think you can still get it on line.

    That's a great CD! I got that some time ago.
    This version of Bold as Love is an instrumental that is included in the premier purple velvet box set that is on the market.
    My link up top to the youtube recording will show you the full difference between the studio version and this instrumental one.

    Thanks though.
    All the best,

    I should have mentioned this as well! I totally agree . . . a fantastic "bang for the buck" DVD. The link to the Guitar World store is below. It looks like it is 19.95 (instead of the 10.00 on newstand). I still think it is a great buy.
