Jimi Hendrix: Rhythm Guitarist
1905 Davie St Victoria BC
Hey guitar players,
Want to learn some new pathways around the fretboard, hear inspiring new sounds and be surprised by your fingers?
Paul Mowbray and I are offering a sweet little workshop on the rhythm guitar style of Jimi Hendrix. a la Little Wing, Wind Cries Mary, & Angel.
His ‘embellished chord’ rhythm style, which has been mostly credited to the influence of Curtis Mayfield and the R&B bands Jimi played with from ‘62 – 66, has been imitated by many rock, blues, pop, and country guitarists ever after. The technique offers beautiful textures you can add to a soulful ballad, a loping country tune, or a R&B classic.
Players and bands as diverse as Mark Knopfler, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dave Matthews, and Lynard Skynard have used this style to give a special touch to their songs. (The list is much longer once you learn these phrases, you’ll notice them all over the place in so many songs.)
