Different version, but still a fantastic chart Madotsuki
This isn't the original Hey Joe that is used on the album, why they didn't use that recording but used the originals (as far as I know) for the rest of 'Are You Experienced', I'm not sure. It may have something to do with the fact that this version features a Big Rock Ending, but I don't know. Thankfully, the chart is alot of fun, so it being a different version isn't too big of a deal when you play the chart.

There isn't really one solid pattern held anywhere in this song (like most Hendrix songs), and the chart jumps all over the place with single-notes, HO/POs, chords, the like. Even though it doesn't have a particular pattern, this song is still incredibly fun. Its hard to explain all the different sections, but to put it simply....its fantastic.

Theres a few solos that contain everything you'd expect from Jimi Hendrix, tons of movement, HO/POs, fast strumming, this chart has it all. Theres a bit near the end where you play single-notes that repeatedly climb up the fretboard in the middle of all sorts of guitar riffing for awhile until the Big Rock Ending comes around.

Overall, this guitar chart has all the great things you'd expect and want from a Jimi Hendrix song, and this chart does not disappoint. If you mainly play guitar, you will definitely enjoy this, and I would recommend it.

Great song with great chart tigers
This song is simply great on drums, full of variety and with lots and lots of fun to play fills and patterns.

The devil tiering is quite an overrate for most of the song, there're only a couple of real fail points that can actually trick experienced players: a quite fast off beat bass with pads constantly switching (pretty much like Dead on Arrival but faster) and a long very very quick roll on snare with crash/ride on the end that will likely throw you off most of the time if you don't save some OD.

Apart form that hard stuff the songs is very very fun to play and goes on smooth and fun.
I like to play it even if I know that I'm gonna fail 1 out 3 times. Reccomended.
