Gaby starts off this easy guitar lesson by giving a brief history of the song and the importance of adding it to your arsenal of licks. The intro that Gaby teaches is based in the minor pentatonic scale and incorporates open strings and double stops. Soule demonstrates how to play it as follows; 3rd fret of the 2nd string with 2nd finger and the open first string played together and then slide to the 5th fret while the first string is still ringing out and then back to the 3rd fret. Next is the 4th fret of the 3rd string with 2nd finger and slide to the 2nd fret and then a pull-off to the open string and then finally ending on the 2nd fret of the 4th string with 2nd finger. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy beginner guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.

The Pentatonic Scale is a musical scale with five notes per octave. They can be found all over the world and are the main scale used in the Blues genre.

Double Stops is the technique of playing two strings at the same time, usually done using the hybrid picking technique.

James Marshall “Jimi” Hendrix was an American rock guitarist from Seattle Washington.
