Voodoo Child is one of Jimi Hendrix’s most loved guitar riffs. This song is based around the key of E, using the E pentatonic minor scale as the basis for the lead sections. For the chords, there are some complicated-sounding Eaug9 shapes, but these won’t be too tricky.
This song can be played in several different ways, with varying degrees of difficulty, but in order to get it to sound like Jimi you will need to comfortable with a few techniques, such as string bending and slurs at the lower end of the fretboard.
