5.0 (4 reviews)

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.

What you'll do

Songs we’ll be studying

I have specifically selected 5 tracks to study over the course of this class. I will be your musical guide as we learn guitar from (arguably) the greatest guitarist of all time. TRACKS: Spanish Castle Magic, Wait Until Tomorrow, Little Wing, Castles Made Of Sand, Bold As Love

Style and Techniques

Hendrix was an unbelievably well-rounded musician, and there are endless things to learn from him. Throughout this class, we will be developing our skills across the board on areas such as: Triads (1st, 2nd, 3rd inversions); Double Stops; Rhythm & Lead; Cool Chords; Pocket & Groove; CAGED system; Phrasing ; Playing with intent; Song Composition

Recreating Jimi's tone

Throughout this class, I will demonstrate how to recreate some of Jimi's most iconic guitar tones. We will be looking at everything from his delicate clean tone to his gnarly fuzz-soaked lead tone

Weekly challenges and Homework assignments

Each week you will get the chance to show off your Hendrix chops! You'll be given fun challenges and homework assignments, during which you'll have an opportunity to demonstrate your progress to the class, and solidify your new groovy guitar skills.


The goal of this class is not to learn these songs note for note. We will be exploring this music to capture the SPIRIT of Jimi’s playing, and use it to ignite the FIRE of our own. The things you'll learn in this class will be applicable to you at every stage of your guitar journey.

Band Of Gypsys

During this class you will be part of an awesome online community of guitarists from all over the world, united by the love of Jimi's music. You will have access to the community forum, where you can chat, make friends, ask me questions, and post videos of your progress.

Who you are
Although beginners are welcome, most of the stuff we'll cover will be challenging to someone at the beginning of their guitar journey It would certainly help to have: A basic knowledge of the CAGED system and chord triads; An understanding of Barre Chords; A basic knowledge of the major / minor pentatonic scale
What to bring
Your favourite guitar!

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.
