Not how to play there songs but there technique. I truly love the way jimi plays guitar and i wanna be like him. I know in 100 years ill never be jimi Hendrix but pointers will help. May be a check list of techniques and things to know. I love his chords shapes and voicing. Plz just dont reply with. Learn theory or something. I need some well thoughts so i can show my teacher and he can better teach me. Specific names are best. I know major minor pent blues scales and modes harmonic minor. I know all them. If u were to tell someone how these 2 guitarist play and there style ud say .......?

1. Pick up your guitar.
2. Inject yourself with enough insulin to induce a fit.
3. Enjoy playing like Hendrix.

If you want to play like them, listen to their songs a lot, and then learn to play a lot of songs by them. But don't just learn the songs, you have to analyze the songs (chord progressions, common chord forms, notes in solos relative to chords. etc.) to learn how the guitarists think/thought. Hope that helps and isn't too confusing.

Guitarists like them go a lot by the feel and groove of the song. I don't think it is quite as academic as you're looking at it. They didn't really bother much with playing cleanly or efficiently. What you need to capture is the groove. Work on improvising with that same kind of emotional style.

just analyze the songs, and transcribe their solos. Transcribing is the best way to drill their style into your head

cool nice replys what im looking for more tech. For example page does double stops etc and jimi does octives like

they both do bends

pent


things like this is what im looking for. Im not trying to copy them but just use the same tools if that makes sence. Also anything that will help me with improv.

They use the same tools as everyone else, simple, basic stuff like bends, slides and doublestops.

What makes them stand out is HOW they use those things...to learn how to do that that you need to listen to a load of their music, analyze it then learn it.

I think your overanalyzing. Hendrix taught himself how to play the guitar, music flowed through the man. The only way your ever going to find yourself musically is to find yourself musically and thats not to mimic someone else. Sure try and take some of his style and incorporate into your own but if you try and mimic guys like page or hendrix your just going to sound like a cheap knockoff.

They use the same tools every guitarist does, its just how they used them and when. If you listen to these guys' stuff live its got amazing feel, but its not always the cleanest stuff; especially Hendrix. Learn some of their songs if you want to find out exactly how they used the technique, but your going to be missing something if thats all you do.

Find inspiration in them and hopefully that inspiration can mold your own style and sound.

dont worry about quite how they do it... because if you learn it by ear you will develop ur own style but ur influence will still be evident. It also helps you develop your ear. If you need to slow the recording down, download this one software called transcribe http://www.slowdownmusic.org/. just turn the calender back on ur computor to keep the free trial.
Guys like jimmy page have extremely sloppy playing, which usually is not preffered these days (unless you have been a rock star since the seventies), so try to take out the sloppiness to make the page and hendrix licks start to sound like "you".
#12
Learn as many of their songs as you can. Every song I've learned, I've found that some aspect of that guitarist's playing made it over into my style, if only for a little bit. You really learn a great deal about a guitarist's tendencies and stock licks and overall, the collection of things that make them them, from learning their music.
#13
I guess I'm looking every technique there is for guitar. I know that sounds silly. I wanna make sure I have every tool. May be like a check list.Eveyone says jimi is sloppy Hendrix guitar playing is amazing tho.

My suggestion:

Listen, and learn Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone". Get it learnt well enough so that you know which chord you are on at all times.
Then listen and learn to Hendrix's version of the same song (google it, it's not on any of his main albums) . You'll then be learning how Hendrix interpreted the song and how he stamped his individuality on it. It will give you an insight into what makes Hendrix sound like Hendrix and how to apply his style.

Could also try with "All along the watchtower" but this track isn't a Hendrixy in my opinion.

Specific techniques for Hendrix:

Bends and slides in his solos.
Wah pedal.
Pentatonic minor scale (but more importantly, knowing when to how to stray from it)
He liked tritones (start of purple Haze is 2 tritones an octave apart)

Hendrix "jazzed up" a lot of chords by turning them into major and minor sevenths.

Also, breaking down everything. You rarely hear Hendrix strumming - he will play a couple of notes of a chord which implies a particular key to the listener and then a short run of notes which includes other notes in the chord (or not as the case may be) to fill in the blanks.

Finally, playing with your teeth, burning your guitar, taking too much acid and choking on your own vomit all help.

also u mention Hendrix barely strumming. On the song he made sounds like he never stops strumming. Comcluding also what I can learn from Hendrix that man pit everyonce of sweat and heart into everysong he did and that is amazing. .

Why go to all that trouble when you can slow down music with Windows Media Player or Quicktime which are free.

Saying Hendrix wasn't the cleanest player ever wasn't an insult to the man. I think he's awesome, but to me that adds some spice to his playing. He's far from sloppy though, but he didn't care to be 100% perfect.

1. Pentatonics
2. Learn some basic rock lead guitar techniques like bending, vibrato, hammer-ons and pulloffs.
3. Drugs.

Because typing "immature childish response" as "immiture childish responce" isn't an immature childish response?

Don't post twice in a row. You put it all in the same one. Do you really think I'm going to bother going to the second page on your nonsense thread?

listen to him as much as possible. thats really it. eventually their style will sink in. my main influences are eric johnson, eric clapton, jimi and stevie ray vaughan. and if i want to, i could go into "jimi mode" or "clapton mode" because ive listen to them so much and played their songs. obviously i dont sound exactly like them but you can get the idea.

also WATCH him as much as possible. it helps to see how he plays too. look up some lessons on youtube. many people love hendrix and have lessons on how to do certain licks and phrasing style.
