HENDRIX STYLE GUITAR TAUGHT BY BILLY COX'S 

FORMER GUITARIST

Jimi Hendrix's guitar playing is more than good blues-based playing. His 'touch' included a unique phrasing, use of body movement & in the words of Miles Davis: "just like Trane & Bird, Jimi played in-between the notes & the tones".

As a musical 'shaman', Hendrix was the first to showcase the electric guitar as an actual ritualistic instrument.

 

For a limited time, lessons on this unique & exciting style are available from the Berklee trained musician/singer who has been professionally performing this style of guitar playing longer than anyone, has toured with Hendrix bassist Billy Cox & clearly knows Hendrix's studio & live technique better than anyone (see Jimy Bleu as Jimi Hendrix page).
