Learn how to play All Along the Watchtower, as performed by Jimi Hendrix recorded in 1968 and released on the Electric Ladyland album.

The lesson covers each of the solo guitar sections from the intro through outro. There is so much variety to each section, Jimi was a master and we all can only aspire to reach to try to reproduce his greatness, but alas fall short 🙂 .

Keef says:

Many teachers claim “note for note” on how to play a song, but never cover it completely. You sir are the closest to Jimi I have heard for this song, particularly when you play the solo. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Cheers! 👍👍

Bob's Barn Workshop says:

I’ve been playing that song since it came out! I always like to see other guys versions and always pick up some extra tips to add to it! Thanks!

Kenneth Reid says:

Best Song of all time and best lesson also.

Lee McDaid - Donegal says:

This bloody song has driven me nuts for a lifetime ha ha! Honestly, it's only recently that I've been able to correctly hear the intro (starts on the "and" of beat 3) without the aid of a drum track/count-in from a play-along track or demo track.
The next worst offender is The Who's Magic Bus (Jasus!!!!, I have a very strong Love/Hate relationship with that song Ha ha!) … and of course there is Deep Purple's "Maybe I'm a Leo" which seems to morph into a completely different riff at the 13 second mark?!? I actually love that though, both riffs sound fantastic! (I hear the intro as starting on the "down" beat of one, but then the correct riff appears to me at the 13 second mark as actually starting on the "and" of beat one!)

Anyway, enough of that twaddle,; Fantastic work as always, Mr. Chain!
