Scott Hen­der­son sig­na­ture and on­line MI course an­nounced

Guitarist - - The Lineup -

It’s taken 20 years to see a pro­duc­tion sig­na­ture model for US jazz-fu­sion and blues vir­tu­oso Scott Hen­der­son, but at last play­ers will be able to pur­chase his highly mod­i­fied S model spec. The re­sult is “a vin­tage-sound­ing in­stru­ment that’s easy to play, that stays in tune and doesn’t hum”, says Scott.

To help achieve this, Scott favours a roasted maple neck to give stability and a “deeper” tone with a D-shape neck pro­file for com­fort. He also opts for the fo­cused midrange trio of sin­gle-coil Michael Lan­dau pick­ups that are SSCII-equipped to re­duce hum without af­fect­ing tone. Hen­der­son chooses a trio of the same pick­ups to of­fer uni­for­mity with sub­tle dif­fer­ences be­tween switch­ing.

In other Hen­der­son news, he hosts a new course on im­pro­vi­sa­tion as part of the Mu­si­cians In­sti­tute on­line learn­ing pro­gramme. Other courses in­clude Har­mony And The­ory Fun­da­men­tals and Ear Train­ing Fun­da­men­tals. The 10-week courses ($799) pro­vide a mix of pre-recorded video lessons, weekly as­sign­ments and Live Lec­tures us­ing in­no­va­tive stream­ing tech­nol­ogy, all on­line. Classes are capped at 20 stu­dents so they will re­ceive per­son­alised feed­back from their in­struc­tors, and those who achieve grades of 70 per cent or above will be awarded an MI On­line Cer­tifi­cate Of Ac­com­plish­ment. www.suhr.com / www.mi.edu
