Study the legend

Welcome to our Jimi Hendrix player study. We're studying everything that defines Hendrix as a guitar player. This includes his exceptional lead skills, rhythmic prowess, and chord mastery. We'll explore how he seamlessly combined all of these elements to create something truly groundbreaking. 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.

I love how how he seamlessly jumps from rhythm to lead and then back again

Dan Holton

Hendrix Chords and beyond

We'll take you through all the fundamental aspects of Jimi Hendrix's instantly recognisable sound. In Unit 1 we cover a riff based song and the famous 'Hendrix Chord' (technically known as an E7#9) - once you hear it you'll know it! In Units 2 and 3 we really dive into Hendrix's amazing chords plus lead style, using two songs to cover major and minor chords and scales, and the CAGED system to explain it all! In Unit 4 we explore more of Hendrix's straight lead playing. Finally, we give you a chance to try it yourself with lots of guidance from Dan!
