Watch the Kinda Sweet online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks

Jimi Hendrix had a profound effect on guitarists. In fact, his soloing and chordal accompaniment has influenced multiple generations of guitarists. His chordal work especially has been the template for r&b guitar playing since he came on the scene with the Isley Brothers in the 60‘s. Lick #22 “Kinda Sweet” is in position I of A Major pentatonic and is inspired by Chaka Khan’s tune Sweet Thing. Although, there is an underlying Hendrix influence as well.
