Hendrix Style: Sliding Chord Shapes

Hendrix didn't only slide single notes up and down the neck. He also slid his basic first-position chord shapes around while leaving his open strings ringing. This lesson will show you the basic idea on how to do this. You can try using these chords on different frets for different levels of harmonic tension. This can at times give your playing an "exotic" flavor, which is something that many guitarists were influenced by in the 60's. The droning of the strings can sometimes invoke the sound of an indian sitar.
