Watch the Waterfall online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Hendrix came from outer space, I am convinced of it. The first Experience album came out in 1967 which was an amazing year for music as we all know, Cream, The Beatles, The Stones, The Who, etc. But Jimi was something else, he sounded like no one, he looked like no one, and he scared the hell out of every one. In his short life he changed music and guitar forever. 40 years after his death his presence is as strong as ever. He is well known for his pyrotechnics but his ballad playing is just as amazing. On this lick I am borrowing the chord progressing from "May This Be Love" from one of my favorite Hendrix style licks.
