This muted wah riff can't be transcribed. I do it with a lot of palm
muting with slight distortion while muting an e chord on the A string.
The same goes for the bits marked x x x in the rest of the intro ...

This is how the main solo starts... I'm not going to transcribe the
whole thing but this will get you on track, it's an E minor
pentatonic thing so work round that. Mainly the 1st pos at the 12th
fret...

When i first started (about a year ago) this was the song i most wanted
to learn but was unable to find. Hope it works ok for you.

JIMI HENDRIX
Voodoo Chile - slight return (few parts)

Only an attempt! Don't expect too much.
When you get the basic feel you can
improvise, and it can sound close to Jimi.

Notation:
h - hammer on
p - pull off
b - bend
bd - bend down
