Learn to play like Hendrix
Nigel is a hugely experienced music teacher and has taught thousands of students over the last 15 years, with a particular passion for Jimi Hendrix’s style and technique.
Ever dreamed of playing guitar like Jimi Hendrix? How about playing guitar in Hendrix’s former home.
Our Guitar Workshops are a great chance to learn some new licks in a friendly environment with other guitar players. These 1-hour sessions are an open forum for all guitarists, from absolute beginners to old pros. All you need to do is bring your guitar.
As our resident guitar teacher Nigel Jones puts it:
“These Guitar Workshops are an amazing way to spend an hour of your life. It doesn’t matter if you’re an advanced player or a beginner. It’s a relaxed environment with no egos. A chance to spend time learning in this inspirational location. What guitar player wouldn’t want to do this?”
This season each month’s workshops will be themed around a specific part of Hendrix’s style or technique:
- May 11: All five pentatonic positions & how to fit chords into them. We’ll do these in the most ‘Hendrix key’ E major/C# minor.
- June 8: Hendrix chord inversions and octaves. E7#9 and other signature chord tones
- July 13: Big bends, slides & hammer ons that last for days. Not only how to do them but how to ‘fit them in’ and make the most of them.
- August 10: The ‘blues’ note, how it fits into the pentatonic scale, and how Jimi used it.
Tickets: £12.00 (includes general admission to Handel & Hendrix in London)
Booking in advance is recommended as space is very limited.
