RAINY DAY, DREAM AWAY

The Jimi Hendrix Experience


=46rom: justmiller@mindspring.com

This is a pretty easy song, actually, but it was hard for me to get=20
some of the chords right because most of them are 9ths making the roots
slightly ambiguous.  Some of the chords and stuff might not be quite=20
right, but they are close enough for me.  The beginning and end is=20
basically a D9 chord with Jimi soloing in a D pentatonic scale.  By the
way, =8CStill Raining, Still Dreaming=B9 is just the rest of this song
and it is also a D9 chord except for a couple variations.  Make sure to
bust out the WAH for this one!

ALSO:

NOTE THAT THIS SONG IS IN STANDARD =8CE=B9 TUNING, NOT =8CEb=B9

                          -----------------------------

 Intro:  [solo in D pentatonic]

D9
Hey man, take a look out the window and see what's happening
Hey man, it's raining
It's rainin' outside man
Aw, don't worry about that
Everything's gonna be everything
We'll get into somethin' real nice you know
Sit back and groove on a rainy day
Yeah
Yeah I see what you mean brother, lay back and groove.

 Little linking phrase:  [Time - 2:09]

G7         D9
Rainy day, dream away
A7      C9          G7
Let the sun take a holiday
G7                D9

Flowers bathe and see the children play

A7           C7          G7
Lay back and groove on a rainy day.


        F9                                                    F9 F#9
Well I can see a bunch of wet creatures, look at them on the run

    G9                                                        G9 F#9
The carnival traffic noise it sings the tune splashing up and

F9                                                           F9 F#9
Even the ducks can groove rain bathing in the park side pool

        G9
And I'm leanin' out my window sill digging everything


 Transition part:  [Play the riffs in between using=20
                    G blues scale and plenty of Wah!]
