Hendrix chord/pentatonic interplay style songs/chord progressions?

What's Hot
mrkbmrkb Frets: 2921
I'm trying to practice my hendrix inspired chord/pentatonic riff/embellishments 'noodling' similar to Wind Cries Mary, Little wing, All along the watchtower.

Ive found Pearl Jam - Yellow Ledbetter (E - B - A - E) which has given a different chord progression to improvise in.

Any recommendations for other songs in a similar style to use for inspiration?

    Eric Haugen on Youtube has a brilliant series on Hendrixy double stop covers of other songs. Tab and backing tracks available too. 
    My Trade Feedback Thread is here

    Been uploading old tracks I recorded ages ago and hopefully some new noodles here.

    Cheers kelpbeds, have checked out that video - hadnt thought of adding the minor chords - will try that out.

    Have found Eric Haugens channel really useful and also Brett Papa/Papastache - he does alot of hendrix style tuition.

    Recommend his intro to theory course as well. Quickly spiced up my chord progressions from straight diatonic stuff.

    Found Beatles - “Don’t let  me down” has a similar style chord riffing. Have added that to the list.

    An obvious one is Under the Bridge. Frusciante essentially just plays Hendrix straight with RHCP.

    This. One of my favourites to jam this style. Another great Hendrix one to practice this is Bold as Love. Check out Jamie Harrison on Youtube, he plays several tunes in this style with nice close ups of his hands (he sells loads of courses on this style also). John Mayer is another one fond of this.
