Watch the Jimi’s Thang online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks

Jimi Hendrix is one of the most important musicians in history. He is arguably the greatest guitarist in rock history and the impact Hendrix had and still has on popular music cannot be overstated. Lick #1 “Jimi’s Thang” is one that you’ll hear often in Hendrix’ “Band Of Gypsys” era playing. It's based in Position I of the A minor pentatonic scale and is a variation of a great classic blues lick. This lick would sound great played on a Strat styled guitar through a Fuzz Face, cranked through a Marshall stack! Or, whatever you’ve got!
