The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Learn to Play the Songs From Are You Experienced? This fantastic two-video set shows guitarists how to play the important parts to every song on this influential album. The videos are hosted and taught by Velvert Turner, a student and friend of Jimi's, with demonstrations by ace Hendrix guitar educator Andy Aledort. For each song, the guitar parts are played at two tempos to help players learn each riff and solo properly, and there are backing tracks to play along with. As a bonus, this set includes actual footage of Jimi playing many of the songs explored and presented on these tapes.
This would be tough for a beginner. For an intermediate to advanced player looking to develop a deeper understanding of the Hendrix compositions, techniques and methods, its very useful.
The best thing about this is that you can clearly hear the guitar parts and see someone playing them in the correct positions on the neck. This album contains several of the most popular hits Hendrix had, and for that reason it is a great starting point. It also contains other songs that were not "hits" but offer some interesting licks and tricks you can apply elsewhere and 80%-95% of your audience won't even know you're ripping off Hendrix. It will just sound cool. The verbal song descriptions are actually essentially "song notes" that a pro musician might write up when analyzing a new song they are studying or teaching. They are delivered matter of factly, and quickly. If this stuff doesn't make sense, slow down and take each sentence one at a time and make sure you understand what is being said. If it sounds like junk to you, you probably just aren't at the point of being ready for this yet. Take it slowly it and in time it will come. These demonstrations are note for note accurate to what Hendrix played on the recordings. If you want to play the songs correctly and actually study what Hendrix was doing exactly....this is the best tool.
