In addition to being an incredible soloist, Jimi Hendrix is hailed as one of the best rhythm guitar players ever. His immediately identifiable ‘chords and fills’ approach works brilliantly in a power trio setting and has inspired rock, r’n’b, blues and gospel guitar players for decades. Grammy nominated guitarist, vocalist, producer and Elixir Strings artist Greg Karas gives an introduction to Jimi’s rhythm guitar style using just three chords in this short electric guitar tutorial.
If you’re looking to break out of straight strumming patterns and power chords in your rhythm playing, Greg’s ‘Hendrix tips’ lesson is for you. He breaks down Jimi’s general approach with a three chord progression that’s easy to follow, even for relative beginners. Add in some sweet neck pickup goodness and you’ll be all set to start exploring that distinctively fluid Hendrix-y rhythm guitar vibe!
