Watch the Band of Jimi online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Solo Electric Blues
Here I go again talking about the imaginary drummer again, but that is exactly what I am thinking. I am imagining Buddy Miles laying down that big, huge, sloppy groove behind me and I am playing to that. I also use some creative visualization. I think about Jimi. What is his body language? What did he look like playing? How cool was he? (The coolest!) I try to channel that into my playing. I find it often works very well. I'm not suggesting you dress like Jimi, etc. Just imagine it!
