Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP) guitar tutor Phil Capone will be holding an exclusive masterclass, as part of the ‘Hendrix in Britain’ exhibition, a commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s death, on Saturday, 2nd October. This event is one of many being held through September and October being held by Handel House inspired by the exhibition.
Phil’s masterclass will cover the licks, tricks and stylistic trademarks that made Hendrix one of the greatest musicians of our time. Demonstrating various effects and sounds Hendrix frequently used, as well as transcriptions of classic Hendrix tunes, Phil will offer insight into lead and rhythm playing, as well as the harmonic thinking behind his playing. The masterclass will be held at the Cumberland Hotel in Mayfair, London, where Hendrix stayed during his time in London, on 2nd October from 2 to 4pm. Tickets cost £15, which includes admission to the ‘Hendrix in Britain’ exhibition.
