      But its all wrong information cause he didn't buy anything to make any of the 100 official jimi hendrix sounds.

    I really like your playing and personality, been playing it for 25 years, various versions Clapton srv and Hendrix versions, then the various live versions. Thats all we had to go by in 90s. I love ppl like you giving a new generation the keys to the sports car and teaching them how to race it.

  • Kevin MacPherson
    Kevin MacPherson 2 years ago +4

    Wow, you could literally just use the soloing techniques in this lesson and be better than 90% of lead guitarists out there. This was amazing. The best and easiest to understand lesson I've ever seen on soloing. Just wow!

  • zaqintosh
    zaqintosh 2 years ago +17

    Fantastic lesson! I’d say the best sounding was level 1 though :) it’s incredibly hard not to sound cheesy playing nothing but triads / arpeggios over chord changes, especially in non-jazz context. I find the most satisfying approach (to my ear) is stick to a scale (either modal or pentatonic or both) in the key, then use very small bits of a triad (or even just a single not e or double stop from the triad) to emphasize a chord here and there, especially if that chord is outside the key (like F). But even when the Em first goes to G, because G is so harmonically similar to Em, it sounds awesome when you briefly take a break from Em pentatonic and hit the 1st and the 3rd from the G maj triad.

    This is such a very excellent lesson RJ. You communicated all the approaches in the best way possible, and the examples were spot-on. You totally deserve to be the guitar hero that you are on YT and in the rest of the musical world.

    JOHN PIOTROWSKI 2 years ago +1

    Thanks for this video, you gave me something new to work on. ALSO....., I need that Strat, but in regular right-hand form. IT IS B-E-A-U-TIFUL !!!!!!

  • Colton Reed
    Colton Reed Year ago +5

    Absolute gold standard for a lesson man! I've taken in person lessons and bought online courses that haven't had half the applicable knowledge you managed to fit into a 20 minute video. Love the way you highlight both the chord being played in the progression and the scale used to solo over it.

    • Dreyn 77
      Dreyn 77 Year ago

      You're actually very wrong and can't read branding words and can't hear that's not jimi hendrix sound or the 100 + official jimi hendrix sounds.
      If YOU talk about jimi hendrix you'd better buy jimi hendrix or else you're getting reported for spam and misleading information.

  • Jorey Reitman
    Jorey Reitman 2 years ago +9

    I've been obsessed with this chord progression for 40 years. If I'm honest with myself, I'm probably beginning level 3.

    • Dreyn 77
      Dreyn 77 Year ago

      NO official jimi hendrix equipment was used during the making of this video.
      There's over 100 + official jimi hendrix sounds to buy and none of them were used in this video.
      30 years of disrespecting the jimi hendrix brand is terrible.

    • Dreyn 77
      Dreyn 77 Year ago

      This video was reported for misleading information and spreading lies and confusion towards the jimi hendrix brand.
      You've had enough time to realize you're delusional and to remove your comments.
      If YOU don't buy anything from the jimi hendrix brand and you start blabbermouthing about your jimi hendrix sound, you're clearly sick in the head.
      You're NOT playing anything jimi hendrix.
      You're not listening to anything jimi hendrix.
      You don't have any of the 100 + official jimi hendrix sounds.
      Not 1 of you is actually thinking for yourself.
      The jimi hendrix brand has been around for 30 years.

    "It wasn't my greatest solo." I like that quote RJ! Seriously though, I liked the last section a lot. My girlfriend is always playing this song on her big D28 and it drives me crazy. Now I can perhaps show her the possible solo concepts. Me too, really useful video man. Thanks

  • Jeff Coster
    Jeff Coster 2 years ago

    Nice lesson. So much covered so well in one shortish lesson - thanks :-). Great explaining and showing what the soloing options are. I used to play more bass where its more about triads and matching them with the chord being played. Recently I've been following lessons where its more about just picking one scale, so it's good to see these options.

  • Andrew Elias
    Andrew Elias 2 years ago +24

    Utterly fantastic. This video should be required watching as an introduction to soloing. I was really hoping to see you just utterly destroy this chord progression as inspiration at the end but I'll take what I can get.

    • Britmysta
      Britmysta 2 years ago +1

      I 100% agree Andrew! I'm just starting to get into soloing with minor penta and major scales together or practicing minor penta over chord changes and this video is excellent. It feels great to be able to understand what Ron is saying, even if I can't quite play the level 3 and 4 stuff yet, I can grasp the concepts and its really fun trying not to make your 1st position penta sound like a scale, lol. It's so hard right now, but its getting better! Also, he's right...playing over little wing progression is so damn fun.

    That one time Clip-Share recommends was spot on! New sub! Really informative lesson to help me soloing in general. These 4 steps way of teaching is awesome, gives me a natural progression in practicing :) How can I practice level 3.2 of staying in the same position for all chords?

      @R.J. Ronquillo alright, thnx man!

    • R.J. Ronquillo
      R.J. Ronquillo  2 years ago +1

      Thanks for the sub! To practice the one position, pick a position and go through all the pentatonic scales of the song, in that position (Em, Am, Bm, Dm) . An easy starting place would be 12th fret position.

    Thanks RJ for an excellent and comprehensive summary of how to solo with scales and arpeggios. Frankly, one of the BEST I've seen on the net. This is a video I can keep coming back to as my skills progress. I really like that you overlay the chord and scale in the upper left hand corner. Good "training wheels" to have as I explore what works over the chord. Great song choice as well since it includes the first six chords of the G major scale, a passing chord and an non-scale chord to boot. PS Bonus points for the matching guitar and strap. I see what you did there... ;-)

      We've reported this clownery video to the authority.
      You should be ashamed of your comments cause your wrong and now you'll have to go to the doctor to get your eyes checked and hearing checked.
      There's ONLY 2 ways to experience the jimi hendrix equipment and playing sounds.
      You either buy the original pedals and guitars and amplifiers OR you buy the alternative option from the jimi hendrix brand.

    This is a great lesson sir, lots to think about here. Thanks for the clear explanation of how the theory actually applies itself to the music, a step that gets lost in a lot of lessons. Cheers.

    Fantastic lesson!!! First time for me to see how to approach pentatonic scales in context with soloing AND chord progressions. Also, to combine the soloing practise with learning different scale positions is awesome. Love your videos and playing. Greetings from southern Germany.

    Great editing, articulation, and solid information. Stoked to think you learned so much making this. Would love to see you talk a bit more about hearing and learning through hearing and articulating phrasing with inspiration from content and song ideals / other live influences etc.

    Man, those tips & tricks are awesome! Thanks so much! When I do the progression between the Bm and the Am I do a B major flat. That probably ruins your trick lol but that's probably just me playing it wrong. Thanks again!

    I don't know if this is the best guitar instructional video on Clip-Share ... but it is definitely in the Top 10 ... should be required viewing for any student of guitar ... doing a few of these each year would be priceless and invaluable ... well done!

    The first video I watched you play was the If 6 was 9 fuzz demo from Solidgold fx, where you played a solo over Little wing. That was I guess 5 years ago. Your playing there blew me away....the dynamics, technique, playing through chord changes...for me your playing was and still is out of this world. And 5 years later, you are showing what you actually did in that video. Thank you so much RJ

    That was the best Clip-Share lesson I've ever seen. I've been trying to learn Little Wing on and off for about fifteen years! I've really struggled with repetitive solo's. But you've just explicitly stated the "rules" in a twenty five minute video based around one of my favourite songs! Great work mate!

  • Lisa Haubert

    Jim Haubert here not Lisa, thanks for this, I teach guitar and this is so refreshing to pass on to my students, the complex simplicity of this and how to approach playing is just an understatement!!! Great lesson here with how to think and approach playing with the relative major and minor scales, big fan R.J. It's as plain as the nose on your face, you just have to look, you're a pro, thanks!!!

    OMG - sooooo good - love how he gently built into modal playing over the changes. Yes! Mixo over that F!

    Level 5: When playing major triads, add b3 and slightly bend up to major 3rd, add the blue note, superimpose upper extensions on chords, add chromatic movement to get jazzy :)

  • Ren LeBlanc

    Great lesson - little wing is the song that that even the pros butcher when soloing - srv and hendrix are really the only two who properly grasped it from a phrasing and melody standpoint, but I would say you could go on to be the third if you recorded a full version!

  • JasTheMusicman

    R.J. firstly, a massive thanks! This video is nothing short of phenomenal - and from many different perspectives. I've been learning the CAGED system (after many years of playing) and this video for me really pulled a LOT of things together and really contextualized many concepts. Truly, I can't thank you enough. Next step for me is going to your Patreon page! Well done.

    I've been playing for 50+ years and even managed to steal a living for a few of them and only just found your channel by accident. This was a great tutorial and despite having played over these changes more often than most people have had hot lunches I got some terrific ideas from it. I will be seeking out your other work. Thanks so much for offering new inspiration.

    Cool video! Helpful to push players to think about outlining chores through arpeggios. My take (FWIW): try to play l what you hear in your head, or sing it to yourself as you play. It sounds simple, but it can make your playing pop and, hopefully, get YOU interested in the notes and where to go next
