The Guitar of Jimi Hendrix: Part 2

Six Thursdays 7-8:30

starts September 15

price: $175

zoom invite only

 

Last year I taught my first Jimi Hendrix class and it was so much fun I couldn’t wait to do another round. Hendrix embodies one of my first musical memories. The confluence of powerful blues, 60s psychedelia, folkiness and sheer musical bombast was something that would stay with me for decades to come. Hendrix was a sponge, soaking up musical inspiration from everywhere. We will learn six of his tunes and along the way see if we can also understand what music inspired those creations.

 

Songs:

 

Castles Made of Sand

Foxey Lady

Manic Depression

Voodoo Child (Slight Return)

Purple Haze

Like a Rolling Stone
