How did Jimi Hendrix learn to play guitar?I like to think he was truly gifted. There were no DVDs or internet around then. Books showing you how to play like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, or whoever your favourite guitar player is, weren't available either. It was said he had perfect pitch and could learn a group's songs in an afternoon just by listening to their records.
Just think of the advantage you have over Jimi Hendrix with all of the resources available to you now. You probably won't ever get as good as him, but have fun getting there and don't give up.
