Little Wing Jimi Hendrix Guitar Lesson Tim Pierce

Little Wing Jimi Hendrix Guitar Lesson

This Free Online Guitar Lesson is with Jimi Hendrix‘s Little Wing. Little Wing is burned into most of us guitar players. I realize that I had not been playing it exactly the right way for the last 30 years 🙂 So, I learned it in a manner much closer to the original. But even after learning it, my hands were too small to actually play it correctly in some ways. I think the thing to do in this situation is make it your own because his feel is so profoundly loose and great at the same time, it’s really […]

Melodic Soloing Tips Free Online Guitar Lesson Tim Pierce

Melodic Soloing Tips Guitar Lesson

Melodic Soloing Tips is a free online guitar lesson where I talk about Melodic Solo approaches, different Guitar Techniques and Sounds. In this Melodic Soloing Tips video you can hear some of my main influences are coming out, particularly the Allman Brothers Fillmore East live double record. It was full of the kind of melodic soloing that has become a big part of my DNA. Then in later years Steely Dan and Larry Carlton also were very very important. I’m using my Mike Tuttle Stratocaster. He winds his own pick ups, and I’m using the neck pick up which […]

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.

Guitar Improvisation Lesson with a Student

Here’s a short guitar improvisation lesson with a friend and student. In a guitar improvisation lesson like this where a player has quite a bit of ability I go straight for the core habits that are preventing a player from sounding like the players he admires on records. The amazing thing for me is that I get to relearn the same things! 🙂 Shannon was simply lifting his fingers up too high every time he made a move with his left hand and he was also cheating on occasion when he would play a fast phrase, and not giving […]

I used a Royer through an AEA mic preamp, as well as a Shure SM 57 through my Flickinger mic preamp by Bill Skibbe. Once again it’s my Divided By 13 RSA 23 amp. […]
