The Weekend Guitar Challenge from LickLibrary inspired by the late Jimmy Hendrix.
Online PR News – 23-September-2010 – – Online music community and guitar tuition specialists licklibrary have been paying tribute to Jimmy Hendrix this week, since it is 40 years since he died at the age of just 27. As part of their tribute, his legendary talents with a guitar have become the focus of LickLibrary’s popular Weekend Challenge, whereby a well-known piece of music is used as the basis for musicians to jam over – and record the results.
The Weekend Challenge is another fun way of learning a new track or trying something creative. Those with a Lick Library Account can simply log in and play or download the LickLibrary Jamtrack for Hendrix’s All Along The Watchtower. Musicians can then jam along to the track with no restriction on style, genre or type of guitar.
For those who record themselves playing and are particularly happy – or simply amused – by what they have produced, the LickLibrary team are keen to see the results on Youtube as a response to the LickLibrary video, as well as on Facebook.
The LickLibrary brand was established in 1998 and has been growing ever since, providing tuition videos and products for drummers and bassists as well as guitars. The Weekend Challenge is one of the latest ways the team are using the internet to make learning guitar as engaging and rewarding as possible.
The LickLibrary site is a community used by thousands of musicians across the globe, and sells guitar tuition DVDs, sheet music & TAB, backing tracks (Jamtrax) and much else besides. The site also offers regular free podcasts and webcasts.
