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 [1] 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!

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here [2]. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

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!
