A Musical Cryptogram on the Name Jimi Hendrix

A Musical Cryptogram on the name Jimi Hendrix is a piece I composed where I attached a musical note to a letter in his name. At the end of the video you can see the key. When I uploaded it to Spotify they said I couldn’t use a famous persons name so it is called, A Musical Cryptogram on the Name of a Famous Left-Handed Guitarist, on Spotify.

Improvisation with Wah Pedal

I love the sound of a wah pedal. I have used it for many years while playing electric guitar. I decided to give it a try with my nylon string. I’m using a Crybaby Wah pedal…

Here are a few of my favorite Wah moments….

Sweet Child O’ Mine solo by Slash. This is the solo that got me into playing guitar. The wah pedal begins around the 3:03 mark.

Voodoo Child by Jimi Hendrix. The classic wah opening and he uses the pedal on and off throughout the piece. I couldn’t find the studio version on Youtube but check it out for the beautiful wah wah pedal opening.

Gory Head Stump by Buckethead. Buckethead uses a ton of wah in many of his songs. He begins using the wah around the 2:21 mark.
