“Little Wing” is a song written by Jimi Hendrix. He first recorded the song on the 1967 album Axis: Bold as Love. It is ranked #357 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.
“Little Wing” is played using the unique chord/melody guitar style that Hendrix developed during his early career stints in rhythm and blues bands. In this style, the guitar sounds as though it is playing two parts. This is done by simultaneously playing multiple complementary notes, often parts of chords, and then changing a note within the chord to create a melodic effect. (Other songs played in this style include “Life Without You” by Stevie Ray Vaughan, “Catch the Rainbow” and “Rainbow Eyes” by Rainbow, “Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd “The Boy From Seattle” by Steve Vai, “Gimme All Your Lovin'” by ZZ Top, “Yellow Ledbetter” by Pearl Jam, and “Under the Bridge” by Red Hot Chili Peppers.) The unusual flanging sound of the lead guitar part is a result of the Doppler effect which is created using a rotating speaker cabinet, or Leslie speaker.
The studio version features a glockenspiel.
Hendrix’s studio version can be found on numerous compilation albums, including The Ultimate Experience (1993). He also performed the song in concert, and some of those recordings are available on CD, including The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Well she’s walking through the clouds
With a circus mind that’s running round
Butterflies and zebras
And moonbeams and fairy tales
That’s all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind.
When I’m sad, she comes to me
With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free
It’s alright she says it’s alright
Take anything you want from me,
Fly on little wing,
Yeah yeah, yeah, little wing
The Genius Jimi Hendrix
