The first step towards learning Voodoo Child (Slight Return)

When SRV recorded his cover of this song, he created a masterpiece. Learning the song note-for-note is…. well, frustrating. So, if you’re like me, you just play along and try not to get lost. But it just goes on, and on, and on….

How did he do that? How did Stevie take a song that’s mostly just one chord, and stretch it to 8 minutes without losing a bit of intensity? Well, that’s kind of why I made this course. We’re going to take apart the song and figure out what’s in there. Get ready for a tour of one of SRV’s best recordings.
