I heard it today and decided to come home and learn this tune after years of putting it off.

How are you guys approaching this. Is it easier to actually land the chord shapes and work thru the pull offs/dble stops or what? I'm not sure how to ask the question. How did you attack it?

This can't be as difficult as Im letting it seem. Can someone help?

It all comes out of chord shapes, some with a third in the bass, and there are at least several Youtube tutorials. It is as Carl Verheyen says, "a standard" for all intents and purposes.

Here's my half-baked attempt at playing it. I really don't have any tips for you, but as you can see, I'm probably not the guy to be passing along advice anyway....

Hey Mark, how are ya, man? I hope you are well. How's the AC?

I guess that's what I'm asking. Once you land the chord, are the stops/pulloffs built within the chord? Sorry for the confusing question. Should I think of it as a chordal thing as opposed to a lead line type approach? Does that make any sense. :hide2

I have always used little wing to measure my progress in learning guitar. When I started playing guitar (15 years ago) I learned the basic chord progression. Every couple of years or so I try to learn additional things to add like double stops, or a small specific run of notes. There is so many things to consider that I would recommend just to be patient and consider it always a work in progress...

That is exactly what Im looking for. You land the chord and do the riffy pulloff stuff within it. Perfect. Thank you so much.

I was approaching it from a different angle but the more I got into I suspected the chordal approach would be the way to go.

You are apparently very much the "guy to be passing along advise" thank you.

I'm hearing Bm7, Bb7, Am7 where as most people play Bm7, Bbm7, Am7. Sounds more correct to my ears.

Thanks, bilbal. Yeah, it's mostly a chordal approach with hammered on notes. This technique is something that has heavily influenced my own playing. It's my favorite thing that Hendrix did. It's my favorite thing that any musician has done for that matter.

This was veeery nice. You played everything in time and seemingly did it note for note. The chorus was a nice touch as well. Now you gotta learn the whole song!
