    Default Mini Workshop - All 4 Solos of All along the Watchtower

    Hi folks,

    Sorry for bombarding you with videos over the past couple of weeks, but I have a run - so to say...New surroundings and a regained joy in filming and playing.

    Okay, here's what I have to offer ;-)
    I have recorded all 4 solos of one of my favourite Jimi songs. Most people totally underestimate this song, but the solos are a very challenging. I think Jimi's phrasing in AATW is even more brilliant than on most of his other recordings. I mean this guy was always not of this earth, but the Watchtower solos are the creme of the crop!

    I've decided to stay with my newly discovered fast & slow method, plus a close up in the slow version. I know, no tabs, no talking, but I think it works anyways, as the videos are made for intermediate players and not for total beginners.

    I hope you enjoy the stuff.
    May I ask you a favour? I would highly appreciate if you guys could share my videos, leave a comment on youtube, subscribe my channel, share them on FB, etc. THANKS my friends!
