Click here for ALL parts of this song in my Jimi Hendrix playlist!

In these All Along The Watchtower guitar lesson videos you will learn how to play one of Jimi Hendrix’s most beloved songs note-for-note!

It was released on The Jimi Experience’s final album of new material Electric Ladyland in September 1968.

This song has it all from cool chord lead style rhythm guitar parts to half a dozen solos. There is something in this song for every player to learn from.

In the All Along The Watchtower guitar lesson videos you will slowly be taken through all of the sections that make up this classic rock masterpiece. There are five videos in all including the full performance video.

So take your shot at learning one of Jimi Hendrix’s finest moments then go to the full performance video and play along. The entire performance and note-for-note lessons are done in standard tuning as opposed to Hendrix’s original half step down tuning. That way, everyone can learn the song without having to re-tune their guitars. A real life saver for any player with a Floyd Rose.

This one is an all-time classic. I hope you have as much fun playing it as I did. Cheers!! 😀
