Hey Joe Guitar Solo | Famous Guitar Solos

The guitar solo in “Hey Joe” is almost entirely played using the minor pentatonic scale, which makes the pattern pretty easy to memorize. The tricky part is trying to replicate Jimi’s sound and the subtle nuances in his phrasing.

The key to sounding like Jimi is getting down the expressiveness in his playing. Considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time Jimi Hendrix’s Hey Joe guitar solo is a perfect example of his extraordinary musicality. I used Positive Grid’s Bias Fx2 in Logic Studio to recreate the guitar tone.
