Chords and lead together!

Welcome to our Electric Intermediate Level 2 course! In this exciting journey through the world of music, we delve into the artistry of Jimi Hendrix and his mastery of both chords and lead guitar. But before we dive into that, we take a thrilling detour into the realm of rock and roll, drawing inspiration from the legendary Chuck Berry. As an intermediate guitarist, mastering the 12-bar rock-and-roll is essential, and we guide you through it with fun and flair.

Learn how The Master, Jimi Hendrix, was able to play chords and lead at the same time!

CAGED in practice

The heart of this course lies in the fusion of the five pentatonic scale shapes with the five CAGED chord shapes. We don't just cover the theory; we provide you with practical licks and examples, ensuring that you can seamlessly apply this technique. To test your newfound skills, we challenge you to play a full Hendrix-inspired tune, replete with licks and chords. By the course's end, your grasp of rhythm and chord play will be significantly deeper, and you'll bridge the gap between rhythm and lead playing, becoming a versatile guitarist.
