Guitar Jam Track – “Little Wing” Hendrix Style
Posted By Storm On February 12, 2009 @ 7:52 am In Jam Tracks | 6 Comments
One of the best experiences of attending Musicians Institute  was having limitless opportunity to jam with the other students. On one such occasion, I was introduced to the progression for “Little Wing” by Jimi Hendrix. Little did I know that I would end playing this song hundreds of times on stage and in jam sessions!
This backing track uses a handful of common chords, both open and barre forms:
The progression is a great one for jamming. It is just a one part, 10-bar form that keeps repeating so no worries about arrangement. And while it is open to scale substitutions you can solo nicely using just the E Minor Pentatonic Scale.
For some inspiration check out this YouTube clip of Stevie Ray Vaughan playing “Little Wing” live. A little “Third Stone From The Sun” is thrown in at the end as a bonus!
