In this course we show you how to play in all the styles Jimi Hendrix made famous! Ranging from full on fuzz-fuelled rock, to Jimi's trademark chords-with-lead style, Dan will take you through all the technique and theory so you'll be able to create your own music in Hendrix's legendary style.
Hoodoo Baby Welcome to our Jimi Hendrix player study! We kick off with a track that will introduce us to the Hendrix rhythm and lead concept, without having to tackle any real theory - that comes later!
Major Licks & Chords Now we’re really going to start diving into the theory behind Hendrix’s chord playing. There are two elements we need to establish, the first is what scales you use with which chords, and the second is giving you some cool licks to use to get you started. These will be your tools to work with that will allow you to develop this style even further.
Minor Licks & Chords We are now ready to add the minor chord to our rhythm and lead playing. We’re specifically working with Hendrix’s favourite shapes, and he very much roots in two chords, the E and A shape minor CAGED chords.
Bubble Gun In this unit we’re going to take a break from the chord and lick ideas, and really focus in on just how awesome Jimi Hendrix is at soloing! We’re going to use a more Band Of Gypsys style track to highlight just how much you can get from simple old pentatonic box one (plus a few other neat tricks along the way).
Channelling Hendrix! In this final section we take everything we have learnt and really encourage your own creativity! It’s all about taking a simple track and working to make it a Hendrix track. Dan skillfully guides you through the process.
