A series of four hour-long focus sessions for guitar players and music lovers looking at the different ways that Hendrix revolutionised how the guitar is played.
Join one of our upcoming Hendrix talks focusing on how Jimi Hendrix used the guitar and changed the way we think about music
Guitarist, and expert of Jimi Hendrix’s sound, Nigel Jones presents this series of interactive talks each with a theme related to an event in Hendrix’s life.
Saturday 23 February 11am-12pm
The Art of the Riff
Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Purple Haze, Foxy Lady – Hendrix’s riffs are still often voted some of the greatest of all time. This talk will take a look at the biggest ‘riffs’ Jimi came up with and how they still shape guitar playing to this day.
Saturday 23 March 11am-12pm
The Cry of Love
Arguably most of Hendrix’s most iconic music was written and recorded with the Jimi Hendrix Experience for their three essential albums Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold as Love and Electric Ladyland. However some of Hendrix’s most eclectic and influential music was created outside of the Experience. This talk will take a closer look at this music, that in many ways was the most ahead of it’s time.
Saturday 27 April 11am-12pm
For our final week Nigel will shine a light on some of the innovative recording techniques that Hendrix pioneered and how he used overdubbing to build a much bigger guitar sound.
