if you were to begin a Jimi Hendrix tribute band and you want to do this...

Is there any specific mechanics or techniques you need to master to be able to play like that?

    He might be using his hand to hammer on and pull off, and not really using the teeth. Or, he may have his pick in his mouth, again not using the "teeth". Steve Vai uses his tongue sometimes (and doesn't hid his face). So perhaps Jimi is doing the same. – ggcg May 27 '20 at 15:12

    I always thought he faked it with hammer-ons, but you can clearly hear that's not the case. Also, it's gotta be really hard to hold a pick when your mouth is open that far. Let's just imagine for a second… he actually did it, as advertised, & clearly filmed. – Tetsujin May 27 '20 at 17:45
