Jimi Hendrix Style Blues Soloing Tim Pierce Papastache Guitar Lesson

Hendrix Style Blues Soloing Guitar Lesson

Jimi Hendrix was my biggest influence of all, and the licks in this free online guitar lesson are based on All Along the Watchtower. Hope you enjoy this Hendrix Style Blues Soloing video.

When I was a little kid in the 60’s and All Along the Watchtower came on the radio I started floating 6 feet off the ground! 🙂 I’m using a Stratocaster made by Michael Tuttle. He wants his own pick ups at this point but very important I have a clean tone, and I’m using the neck pick up. The neck pick up is always the most it identifiable Hendrix tone. I talk about various Double Stop Techniques, Bends, Sliding, Trills, Hammer On / Pull Off’s, Rhythm Playing and more. This Hendrix Style Blues Soloing video was made with Brett from Papastache. Please leave any comments you may have and I look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy! I also have more lessons on my Lessons Playlist: You can find more videos as well on Brett’s YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/papastache102

    Thanks for the great lesson. I play in a contemporary music group at church and someone will invariably start noodling with the chords to All Along the Watchtower. I’ll now have some solid ideas to play along.

    Dave Mason has always been one of my favorite guitarists and, as you I’m sure are aware, he played acoustic on Jimi’s version. That being said, Dave had always done justice to the song through the years and I love his interpretation. Dave’s a real fluid player I’ve always wanted to be able to play like him. He plays as though he’s shifting gears and his phrasing is 2nd to none.

    Thanks again. I’ll definitely be watching for your upcoming videos. If you ever come to the New Orleans area (i.e. Jazfest), I’d love to hear you play.
