Jimi Hendrix Style Chords Pt.1

This lesson is the first of two demonstrating some of Jimi Hendrix's chord and rhythm style.

The lesson demonstrates some of the embellishments that Jimi used over basic chords and the next lesson will show how he uses them in the intro to his song "Little Wing".

Countless guitarist's use this rhythm method in their playing and it can create some absolutely beautiful chord passages.

So have fun with Jimi and I will see you tomorrow with Part Two.
