This bums me out as well.

I got the first two bars of the solo to Purple Haze down...now I'm at a stand still. I do have several copies of the tabs in some of my assorted books, so learning what to play isn't a problem. It just makes it easier to do stuff with someone showing me the way.

Hal Leonard (the big music print publisher) has a video song lesson site, that has some of the Jimi Hendrix titles. You can buy them individually for $2-4 each. They aren't as detailed as our lessons, but it might be your best alternative right now:

Thank you for at least providing us with an alternative link to a Hendrix lesson Jon. But in short GT's Hendrix song tutorials were the best on the web. Period!

And I absolutely believe you guys did everything to renew the license, so no hard feelings against you guys!

But still I think everyone has that one burning question: Is there a chance that the Hendrix song tutorials will reappear on GT? I would like it very much if you can somehow provide us with an answer on that. Is there no chance at all? Can you guys try to renew the license next year? Or are you guys not planning on trying to renew the license at all? Or is all of this completely uncertain at the moment?

No matter the answer, I think a lot of people want some sort of closure on this, myself included. Even if you guys won't try to renew the license at all, I won't hold any grudges. Could you please tell us?

Thanks in advance.

This is all very sad, I was excited to work on Hendrix lessons, but sadly my skills are still somewhere in the basics, so I'm slowly working towards there and didn't really tackle advanced songs like Hendrix. I took a peek at one of the lessons and it was amazingly detailed and well presented though....

With or without Hendrix lessons, GT remains the best place to learn guitar, you guys have provided me with an opportunity to grow as I never did before and I deeply thank all the team for helping me rediscover love for guitar :)
Don't let moments like these discourage you in doing all the amazing work with this site.

Thanks for all the support on this. I know it is difficult to accept the situation, so I appreciate that many of you have taken the opportunity to compliment the lessons we make and the work we put into getting the songs in the first place.

JJ90 asked for closure. I don't think we'll ever stop trying to get the Hendrix songs back, but don't get your hopes up. If you have your heart set on learning Hendrix songs right now, give Hal Leonard a few bucks and you're all set. GT will try to get them back on here, but again don't get your hopes up.

Meanwhile, in about a week there will be an announcement with some new songs you'll really like. So stay tuned for that.

I honestly never use this site to learn songs. Whenever I want to learn a song I just find the most accurate tab out there and I listen to the song. So if any of you still want to learn some Hendrix songs, Tab Pro has some of the best tabs for ALL of his songs. I think it's like 4 bucks to sign up for the full version of Tab Pro for an entire YEAR. Tab Pro also plays the song within the tab, it has all the instruments, and you can slow it down. It's great.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you can find a lot of his backing tracks for free, or purchase them in a Hal Leonard play along book.

Also, this video does a great job explaining how to create your own songs in the style of Hendrix: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wR7SKgPNyZs


Cool. Thank you!

Wow, this is definitely a bummer! I'm relieved to hear that the other songs aren't in jeopardy.

Sure you can find tabs and stuff, but Anders and Tom did such an incredible job in teaching these songs in a way I think can't be matched. They dug deeper into the how's and why's, not just the notes.

To see the amount of effort that went into making those lessons go to waste upsets me. The detail in Pali Gap was ridiculous!

Like castles made of sand...

...fall into the sea. Eventually.

Thanks for the honest update Jon. It's a real shame but I'm confident that you'll continue to invest in GuitarTricks. I thought that I'd joined a tuition site, I actually joined a community.

Very excited about the coming announcement!
