Acoustic guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel recently dropped by Jimi Hendrix’s Sixties apartment in Mayfair, London. Luckily, he brought along a guitar!

Above, you can watch Emmanuel play “Purple Haze” in the historic flat, which happens to be right next door to George Frideric Handel‘s old apartment. Those guys probably would’ve thrown some great dinner parties if they didn’t live 250 years apart.

Anyway, the performance and chat is part of Guitar Interactive’s ongoing Hendrix Sessions. By the way, Emmanuel also performs “Rachel’s Lullaby,” a track off his new album, Accomplice One.

For more about the Hendrix Flat, step right this way.

Be on the look out for Guitar World‘s exclusive Tommy Emmanuel Master Class in the June 2018 issue and (very soon) on GuitarWorld.com!
