Sep 29th, 2017

Bold As Love Song Guide Course

In this lesson we'll study a very cool chord embellishment that Jimi Hendrix played in the song "Bold As Love". Jimi was able to create a feeling of movement when he played rhythm, and in this lesson we'll look at how he does that by skipping the root of a chord, jumping straight to the embellishment, then landing on the root of the following chord.
