Guitar World and Agile Partners have announced that three Jimi Hendrix Lick Packs are now available in Guitar World Lick of the Day, the popular app for learning guitar on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The Beatles Lick Packs were also released at the end of February.
All licks in Guitar World Lick of the Day include high quality videos of guitar instructors demonstrating the licks, scrolling tab and standard music notation, and more. Guitar World Lick of the Day is powered by TabToolkit, an Apple Design Award winner developed by Agile Partners.
The three Jimi Hendrix Lick Packs packs provide lessons on how to play amazing licks from the albums Axis: Bold as Love, Are You Experienced, and Electric Ladyland.
- Hendrix: Experienced pack features ten essential riffs from songs on Hendrix's debut album Are You Experienced, including "Purple Haze," "Manic Depression" and "Foxey Lady." Released in 1967, Are You Experienced was one of the defining albums of the psychedelic movement.
- Hendrix: Bold as Love features eleven licks from songs on Axis: Bold as Love, the second studio album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The eleven licks include riffs from "Spanish Castle Magic," "Bold as Love," "Castles Made of Sand" and one of Hendrix's most popular songs, "Little Wing.".
- Hendrix: Ladyland, includes ten killer riffs from songs on Hendrix's magnum opus, Electric Ladyland, including "Crosstown Traffic," "All Along the Watchtower" and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)." Released in October of 1968, Electric Ladyland was the third and final album of new material by The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
In addition to the Hendrix Lick Packs, Lick of the Day also offers two The Beatles Lick Packs and five genre-specific Lick Packs to help guitar players master their chops in a wide range of styles: Blues, Acoustic Rock, Classic Metal, Jazz, and Bluegrass. Each Lick Pack costs $4.99.
