Hendrix Style: Parallel Octaves

Parallel octaves are by no means a new musical idea, but Hendrix used this technique in his rock playing to create a beautiful, lush sound. It effectively blends the best aspects of rhythm guitar and a lead melody line. So the next time you are trying to decide whether to play rhythm or lead during a section, try this cool Hendrix-y technique out. It can be used in many styles, not just blues rock.
