Watch the Band of Jimi online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Solo Electric Blues

We all have records that had a huge impact on us as players. My list is fairly long but the Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsys changed the course of my playing. In particular the version of Machine Gun from that record. That is one of those moments where the starsĀ  aligned and lightning struck all at the same time. Fortunately for the world, it was caught on audio and video. I tried to channel some of the sound of that song into this tune and hopefully give you some insight into what Jimi might have done, humbly of course.
