Newly released book offers the complete musical scores of Jimi Hendrix

Want to learn to play like Jimi Hendrix on his own songs? Hal Leonard, the world’s largest educational music publisher, has just released a new book that offers up the full scores and lyrics to the music from all four of Hendrix’s albums.

Perhaps no one has inspired more guitarists in the past 50 years than Jimi Hendrix. In his brief yet prolific career, Hendrix redefined what guitarists were able to do with the instrument, and created musical masterpieces still celebrated today.

This special hardcover edition comes in a purple velvet protective case and features over 1,000 pages with full scores and lyrics to all 52 songs from the albums Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold as Love, Electric Ladyland, and Band of Gypsys. Songs featured in the collection include: “Purple Haze,” “Hey Joe,” “The Wind Cries Mary,” “Foxey Lady,” “Little Wing,” “Castles Made of Sand,” “Bold as Love,” “Crosstown Traffic,” “All Along the Watchtower,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Machine Gun,” “Power to Love,” and more.

Each instrument has been transcribed faithfully from the original recordings, so you can dive deep into the compositions, lyrics, solos, and sounds of Jimi and his band. Guitar and bass parts are written in both standard notation and tab.
