Following on from my class 'Jimi Hendrix: Are You Experienced', we will be continuing on this journey with his incredible second album 'Axis: Bold As Love' During this 5 week course, I will be your personal guide as we explore some of the most influential and righteous guitar playing of all time. From his beautiful rhythm playing, to the earth-shattering riffs and the blistering solos, Jimi's incredible talents have inspired every generation of guitarist since. He still sounds fresh, exciting and original today, almost 60 years on. In this fun and interactive class, we will explore the mechanics of his playing, his approach to rhythm, lead, tone, phrasing, double stops, and how to combine it all together. You will start to understand how he played so fluidly, and find freedom on the fretboard. I have selected 5 songs from the album that I deem to be the most educational and inspiring. We will study them together from the ground up, and learn the methods of (arguably) the greatest guitarist of all time. The goal of this class is not to learn these songs note for note. In fact, it's unlikely that Jimi himself ever played them the same way twice. We will instead be exploring this music to capture the SPIRIT of Jimi’s playing, and use it to ignite the FIRE of our own.

This was a really great class. I really enjoyed Joey's approach, breaking down the songs into their elements and enabling to play at your level - crucially never giving you an end point and allowing you to develop as a guitarist with the song each time you play it. Joey is an engaging, knowledgable and responsive teacher and the classes are always fun.
Wonderful class. There’s a lot to learn from Hendrix - but also a lot to learn from Joey! He is a fantastic musician and teacher. Every lesson is a huge inspiration.
Fantastic class. Joey isn't just teaching Hendrix songs he is teaching his style. He gives you so many ideas to play with for each song that you can easily play them so many different ways just like Hendrix did. Highly recommend this class.
Another awesome class taught by the great Joey Weidner. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and can't wait to join the next Joey Weidner class 😊
