Where are the lyrics people? Feb 18, 2008
The music is pretty much spot on, I'm disappointed that they did not include the lyrics just to make things a little easier.
If you wanna learn hendrix's secrets, here's THE book. Jul 5, 2007
This is probably the single best source out there to truly learn Hendrix's techniques and secrets on his most famous recordings. I've been playing quite a long time, and I have already learned a great deal from this well laid out text/CD. I copied all of the tracks into iTunes, so I can easily access different peices of the example tracks.
This book will improve your playing techniques and tone no matter where you are in your playing journey. The author has probably the best guitar tone in the industry, and he lists all of his equipment. The description and teachings of each section are very well done. His choice of words to describe different techniques and sounds is excellent.
There are a lot of decent guitar books out there, but this author and his books stand out. If want to learn Hendrix, you absolutely need to buy this book.
Hendrix Signature Licks Vol2 Apr 30, 2006
THIS is how to play a stratocaster; THIS is how it should sound; T H I S is how a Signature Licks book should be done. Accurate transcriptions; great song, phrasing and tone analysis. Andy Aledort knows this music inside out and it shows here. The CD is good enough to listen to anytime.
The best of the SL series. CAUTION: Master this and you're still only scratching the surface Grasshopper.
Good Solid tab Book Mar 15, 2006
It's a good start to getting your fingering and cord structure down, these books give you a good place to start. THEN: after you watch some DVDS of Jimi at the Isle or Wright or At Berkley - you slap yourself and run away in disgust with your meager attempts at playing his songs. THEN, you pick the guitar up again with a better understanding of what Jimi was doing with his songs, with where he wanted to go with it, and make yourself a lot better sounding guitar playing.
Amazon shipping is the worst Feb 26, 2006
This book is great for the break down in style and slowed down and explained tracks. It gives you good direction for practice, and you will have to practice to get it down. This is not a substitute or an easy way by any means for putting in the hours, but once you do you won't belive your ears! Buy it used too, this site cannot seem to deliver, my only issue with the whole thing:
I ordered this Book Signature Licks Hendrix Volume from this site in Dec 2005. It has not arrived and the shipping dates gets pushed forward in 2 week increments- Where the hell is it this site!?!? Many broken promises and missed holidays, it still has not arrived. I ended up getting a copy from Ebay.
