hey guys, I've been trying to play purple haze, but im frustrated on the opening part. after the first little beat with 6,8,6,8 in tab, I am playing the exact notes, and playing them fast but i cant get it to sound right? any help is appreciated
Are you playing them stacato??
Using the correct note lengths? Play it up against Hendrix's version to get the feel, then totally forget that and put your own spin on it. Try adding some vibrato in it to give it a blusier, more soul-ful feel.
yeah get his if u dont (studio version, live he improvises) try the best tab here (says the dead god hendrix at the top)
Are you ill? How on earth can we possibly tell what's wrong if you won't even show us what you're playing? Which transcription are you using??
Tune down to Eb, maybe why it sounds a bit off.. Or if you mean by your playing, slow the tempo down and get the notes right and play cleanly, then get it up to speed. You have the tab so you know what to play, so listen to song and get the rhythm down.
