Joscho Stephan follows the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix playing “Hey Joe”. In this lesson we leave the gypsy-standards for a moment and discuss this US-Folksong, which becomes a classical rock song covered by Mr. Jimi Hendrix.
Music should be fun…this song makes fun!
Even if the songtext isn´t happy and fun at all – its about a man on the run, after shooting his wife (who cheated on him) – it makes much fun to play this tune on a gypsyguitar.
Especially with our new backingtrack. We´ve added a real upright bass to our rhythm guitar track. So if you got the chords or melody straight, you can check our backing track played by the “Joscho Stephan Trio”.
The guys who already owns Joschos last CD (CD: Guitar Heroes – 2015), know his version of Hey Joe.
Cause there was so much feedback on this song, we transcribed his version of the “Guitar Heroes CD” and prepared over 2,5 hours of guitar lesson, – explained in detail – for you!
In the following video you can get a first impression about our work in the GypsyGuitarAcademy Studio. Joscho is checking out his transcription of his “Guitar Heroes CD”.
