Watch the Watchtowser online guitar lesson by Jeff Scheetz from 50 Blues Rock Rhythms You MUST Know
This lick is based on Jimi's version of the Bob Dylan classic "All Along the Watchtower". The basic chord shapes represented here are Am, F, and G. But rather than playing the whole chord, we are just using the top four strings. That way we can use our pinky to get the little hammer ons and pull offs that make the lick happen. You can use this technique anywhere there are basic chord shapes, the key is knowing which notes sound the best - so experiment!
