Guitar World magazine and DVD show Hendrix's secrets

For decades guitarists have been copying Jimi Hendrix. Now they can learn some of the legendary rocker's work note for note.

Guitar World magazine will release a special 16-page Hendrix tribute and an instructional DVD that shows how to play each memorable note and string-bending lick on his classic 1967 album, "Axis: Bold As Love." The DVD-magazine package hits newsstands Tuesday.

"Not only are you going to learn some of Jimi Hendrix's greatest licks," the magazine's editor-in-chief, Brad Tolinski, says on the DVD's introduction, "but we also hope to provide you with a little bit of history on the making of `Axis: Bold As Love,' as well as some insight into his creative musical genius."

The magazine tribute includes a complete biography of the guitarist and replicas of concert posters. The DVD includes original photographs and studio footage of Hendrix at work, as well as three hours of instruction covering the 13 songs on "Axis," which Tolinski describes as "the disc that captures a perfect moment in the life and career of James Marshal Hendrix."

Janie Hendrix, Jimi's stepsister and chief executive of Experience Hendrix, which oversees his musical legacy, said the tribute package "underscores the timelessness and Jimi's music and spirit."

This is the first in what is set to be a series of special releases, Tolinski said.

The package sells for $9.99 (7.37 EUR).
