Chapter 8: à la “Testify”

This chapter addresses the influence of soul and R&B music on Stevie’s playing, as well as Jimi Hendrix’s style. Set to an uptempo, straight-eighths groove in the key of E, along the lines of “Testify,” authentic-sounding chord riffing and soloing examples are presented that demonstrate Stevie’s penchant for using thumb fretting to play 7#9 chords and the way he would often jump to different areas of the fretboard throughout a solo to play licks based on his most preferred scale and chord shapes.
