http://bluesguitarunleashed.com – This is a lesson I put together to start to demonstrate the Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan (SRV) approach to playing chords and embellishing them in the style of Little Wing or Bold As Love.
When I first heard this style of playing I had never heard anything like it. This was before TAB books and the internet were available so I spent a lot of time investigating the sound and how Jimi approached it.
As it turns out, it’s really not that complicated if you simply match up pentatonic box shapes with chord shapes. They match 1 to 1 and I’ve shown some of them here.
If nothing else, this style of playing allows you to pick any simple chord progression and noodle over it for hours. It’s the best “music store jam” type of playing I know.
