I'm trying to learn Little Wing and its like notes everywhere. Would it just be a better idea to learn the barre chords and figure out my own thing?

Learn what chords he's playing in each bar, and what positions.

Run through the song with those chords, on the right beats of the bar, counting in 8th notes.

Then take the song bar by bar, learning all the little inflections and looping the bar in your music player if you can.

Then move on to practising in 2 bar segments, then 4 bar, 8 bar, 16 bar etc until you have the whole song down.

Yea, it's important to know the chordal structure, but if you want to learn it, learn it note for note. Don't wing it.

...no pun intended.

There's note "notes everywhere" at all - Little Wing is nothing but barre chords, arpeggios and inversions all revolving around the chord shapes, it's an incredibly structured song.
Actually called Mark!

What i did is try to learn the intro note by note, that would probably take a little while but its doable.

Once you do that, you need to understand what chords he uses, and how to play in the hendrix rhythm style.

After that, i try to play the chords or the root note and try to do some of his style stuff for each chord, or try to at least emulate what he plays.


I think learning note by note is rediculous,the intro is okay, but after that i don't even think hendrix knew how to play it note by note. He just played the chords and did his own style on top of it, creating his rhythm-lead style.

yeah, songs can look hard sometimes in tab. Cause it doesn't tell you that you should be holding all the notes down at once rather than randomly grabbing them
GENERATION 10: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment.

Learn what chords he's using, then start learning his style. Once you have the style of Hendrix's playing, learning his songs by ear becomes a lot easier.

Also, realize that he did chords in a unique way to accompany his rhythm/lead style playing. He uses A LOT of double stops in his songs.

all his barre chords for example he uses his thumb to fret the low E string, making it easier for him to switch into little lead licks because his index finger isn't holding him back by barring all 6 strings.
