Watch the Jimi's Mood online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know
There are certain songs in your life that change everything, give you chills, and basically blow your mind. One of the top on my list is "Machine Gun" by Jimi Hendrix from the Band of Gypsys album. That tune inspired a legion of guitar players and its impact is still felt today. The song and solo have everything, vibe, emotion, tension and release, chops, great band, and of course, Jimi. This lick is a bit more of a modern yet humble take on that vibe Jimi created on New Years Eve in 1970.
