Watch the Jimi Hendrix online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone

In this section I use my thumb over the top of the neck. This is a technique that Jimi exploited as both a lead and rhythm player and is definitely worth spending some serious time on. Pay attention to my right hand as well and notice how I am keeping a 16th note rhythm going. Check out Jimi's version of Killing Floor to see this in action, also check out Hendrix devotee Eric Johnson make full use of this technique as well.
