The Wind Cries Mary (A Closer Look)

a closer look lessons Jun 14, 2022

In this new segment, we take *A Closer Look* at guitar solos, riffs, and licks of some of the most notable guitarist who have graced the instrument before us.

If you want to improve, it's not enough to only learn the "tab" of a solo, rather how the solo is connected to the rhythm, harmony, and the song as a whole.

This first video in the series starts with a Jimi Hendrix classic, "The Wind Cries Mary". Jimi wrote some surprising chord changes behind the solo and weaves his melodic interlude around the harmony masterfully using pentatonic scales from other keys, chord shapes, and the blues. Stick around and join me as we take... a closer look.
