  • HEY GMC!

    I'm very excited to be able to bring you this new lesson that looks at those cheeky little trills Hendrix was so famous for using. The main goal of the lesson is to look at applying these trills in a rhythmic way, firstly using straight 16ths and secondly using triplet 16ths.

    When executed with good timing they can add a cool explosion of sound into your soloing and riff writing.
    Be sure to practice these slowly with a metronome and always make sure your in control of the trills rhythmically.
