Purple Haze (by Jimi Hendrix) intro on Slide Guitar in standard tuning @ Island Guitar & Ukulele Lesson Studio in Key West

Purple Haze on Slide Guitar (Intro Jimi Hendrix) played by Wayne Sorbelli @ Island Guitar Lesson Studio in Key West

Grabbed the Epiphone Les Paul Standard, put on the glass slide and turned on the Hendrix Backing tracks – I recorded 3 takes one after the other.

E minor pentatonic scale “How to example” Jimi Hendrix’s Hey Joe Solo w/ @ Island Guitar & Ukulele Music Store Key West, Dallas NEPA

Wayne Sorbelli here @ Island Guitar Lesson Studio with a nice Made In Mexico MIM Fender Strat HSS (which stands for Hum, single, single, – referring to the guitars pickup configuration of Humbucker @ the bridge, Single Coil in the middle, & Single Coil @ the neck).

 I’m using a Dunlop Jazz 3 RED guitar pick playing through an Orange Crush 20 FX w/built in effects,  although as usual i’m running real light weight on the effects.  I’m using a very slight amount of delay and gain – that’s it.

In this video I started off sticking close to Jimi Hendrix’s guitar solo on his original recorded release of the song, although I let myself stray a little – then a lot, just for fun!!  Hope you enjoy and find the example helpful.  

I recorded a few different versions of this solo/song using different soloing ideas and techniques – and some different effects and amps.  I’m just having some fun & I hope you enjoy –  if you have any questions pls contact me – my email is  wayne@sorbelli.com

Ibanez Steve Vai JEM 555 guitar through a ROLAND Micro cube Amp w/Wayne Sorbelli @ Island Guitar & Ukulele Store Key West

Wayne Sorbelli here @ my Island Guitar & Ukulele Store in Key West (next to At&T and UPS store in Kmart Shopping Plaza)

I just got finished setting up the Floyd Rose locking tremolo system on this Ibanez Steve Vai JEM 555 guitar.  It plays & sounds killer. It’s a great shred guitar but also has the vintage sound available compliments of the Dimarzio pickups!

I’m going through my little portable Roland Micro Cube Amp (see it sitting on top of my keyboard in the video)

Pink Floyd solo on ukulele with beer bottle slide. Wayne Sorbelli @ Island Guitar & Ukulele shop Key West

Pink Floyd solo on my ukulele with a home made beer bottle slide that my dad just made me last night as a gift!

I’m here at my Island Guitar & Ukulele shop on the beautiful island of Key West.

I consider the SLIDE & mainly the glass slide my main instrument. I don’t care what it’s on, guitar, bass, acoustic, electric, ukulele etc. I PLAY SLIDE!  

All slides sound different, not better or worse, but different and they all certainly FEEL and handle much differently once laid upon the strings.  Brass is heavy and offers more resistance therefore it’s easier to accurately stop and not blow by a target note, where glass is lighter and slippery feeling and offers more control over the fine overtones, but it takes more effort to control it – I can write volumes on differences in slide material  – but i guess we will save that for another post)

“You can try to play the blues, or just give in and let the blues play you!  That’s IT!  It’s THAT little struggle, THAT split second tension right there between me and my guitar and those unconscious note choices that are happening when the notes start to play me, to me,  THAT IS THE BLUES”  – Wayne Sorbelli
