Hendrix made a profound impact on many guitarists in the later part of the 20th century. After his death many of these players continued to wave the Hendrix flag by morphing his sound, techniques, and guitar licks into their own unique style. Some of these guitarists include the likes of Eric Gales (The Eric Gales Band), Vernon Reid (Living Colour), Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions) and Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), which are considered the second and third wave of guitarist to carry on the Hendrix sound.
In Guitarists Influenced by Hendrix II (retail $11.95, sale $9.95), you will learn many licks, riffs and techniques in the style of each of these guitarists that will greatly enhance your playing skills and give you a deeper understanding of the Hendrix sound. A previous CD-ROM in this series called "Guitarists Influenced by Hendrix I" was released earlier this year which covers the style of Robin Trower, Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush), and Randy California (Spirit).
This lesson series is designed for the Intermediate and advanced guitar students, but there are many licks that can be played by beginning students who have been playing for a year or more. You can preview and audio sample (MP3 - 1 Meg) of what you will learn: www.riffinteractive.com/catalog/media/hendrix2_sample1.mp3
