Watch the Jimi Hendrix online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone
Jimi's lead playing is one of the most recognizable and most copied sounds in guitar. His blend of blues, rock, psychedelia, and sex was never seen before. He set the water mark for all that followed. When he first hit in England he took the scene by storm, in the audience was British rock royalty, The Beatles, Stones, Clapton, Beck, Page, The Animals, and the Who. By all accounts they were all impressed and scared by the American who came in and turned the place upside down. It must have been something to see.
