Our Jimi Hendrix Lesson Package features six downloadable video lessons that will teach you how to solo like this guitar legend. In addition to his all out rockers, Jimi also had a knack for bringing energetic solos to a ballad setting. Little Wing, Hey Joe, and The Wind Cries Mary are absolute classics and a thrill to play.
In this set of lessons, Jody will touch on Jimi’s approach to playing ballads as well as some techniques that Hendrix used throughout every playing situation. Using licks and solos, Jody will show you the bends, hammer ons, double stops, and note choices that Jimi used to create his distinctive tone. In each lesson, you’ll be able to use the step by step video instruction, included tabs, and included jam tracks to practice and really master this material. You can watch a demo of the whole package below.
Jody Worrell has a new free guitar lesson that will teach you how to play an easy electric guitar lick. This is a great lesson for beginner to intermediate guitarists who are just starting to play lead. Jody will take you note by note through playing the lick correctly. There are also options to add pull offs, slides, and vibrato to create a cooler sound. You can add these techniques as you become more comfortable. After teaching you how to play the lick, Jody will demonstrate it along with a jam track.
We’re now publishing our most recent free lessons as a guitar lesson video podcast. This is a great way to download the lessons and have them on hand and viewable on your computer, phone, or tablet. You can always come to the lesson’s specific page on freeguitarvideos.com to view or download any associated tab.
We’re currently publishing one of our HD free lessons each weekday. As we get caught up, we’ll publish any new lessons to the podcast as they become available.
If you were to search on eBay or a lot of guitarist’s basements and closets you’d find they are littered with guitars in the $100 range. It’s usually a starter guitar that’s been traded in for a better model. Occasionally it’s a guitar that’s fallen victim to wear and tear and father time. But can they still sound good? Guitar Muse has a story about the $100 Guitar Project.
Two guitarists began the crazy story by purchasing an unusual looking $100 guitar from eBay. The goal was to write and record a song using the guitar, sign it, and then pass it on to someone else to repeat the process. Yada, Yada, Yada, now Alex Skolnick, Nels Cline, and Fred Frith have played the guitar that’s now been identified as a 1960′s Fujigen Gakki EJ-2. Head over to Guitar Muse or 100DollarGuitar.com for more of the story.
