The Wind Cries Mary Song Guide

If you want to learn The Wind Cries Mary, this is the best place to start.


About This Course

You hear Jimi’s signature sound right from the opening chords of this song. Although it isn’t among his most technically difficult performances, it is challenging for different reasons. There’s a certain “feel” to the rhythm and soloing that requires more polish than power.

That’s what this course is all about. I’ll show you how to capture that feel. You’ll take a tour of the song’s structure and progressions, learn plenty of chord options, and I’ll also teach you the three key soloing elements he used to in The Wind Cries Mary.
