guitarra_backphoto3a_SMLTrained by the great Andres Segovia, Eric Henderson is a guitar virtuoso who covers a vast repertoire with technical mastery and passionate delivery. In concert he often plays a traditional selection, such as a Spanish piece by Torroba or a work by Bach, followed by his arrangement of a rock classic, such as “Paint it Black” by the Stones or “Little Wing” by Jimi Hendrix. Another element that sets Eric apart is his performance of captivating original compositions. These are melodic and accessible yet complex and full of surprises.

Eric Henderson’s playing shows how the guitar can transcend genres. He is unconventional in a most compelling way.

    Hello Eric, Do you have this piece “Moonlight Sonata” available to share or sale? I really want this piece. I’m try to find it. It’s very hard to find. I hope for your answer.

  2. Hello Eric,
    This is John Bilezikjian writing you back. I had spoken with you today about getting tortoise shell for one of my students. I listened to your Recuerdos de la Alhambra. It was very impressive Eric.
    You are a fine player. I hope one day to meet you. I understand that we do not live that far apart. Perhaps one day that could be arranged. All the very best with your recordings. John Bilezikjian.

    I am really excited about the new works from Eric on electric guitars. Truly inspirational and totally on the edge of a revolution in guitar performance. Some of these classical pieces performed on electric guitar with a tasteful mix are beautiful in ways that would have amazed the original composers. It is really a joy to work with Eric in the studio on these masterpiece recordings. Check in soon so you can share in some of the magic as it takes shape.

    I just saw you perform at Coalesce in Morro Bay. Electric guitar classical? I wasn’t sure what to expect. Your own composition with the “van halen” virtuosity…..well….I wept, literally. That is truly one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard. You MUST…..MUST record the electric classical album. I am thoroughly steeped in classical guitar – Segovia and WIlliams, and only your music has made me weep. Unbelievable. You are truly a gifted musician with a rare and awesome talent. Too bad it was only two sets. You didn’t really get in the groove until the second set. THANK YOU SO much for sharing your wonderful talent with us.

    You did not disappoint us last night with your performance at Castoro Cellars. We were so mesmerized by the beautiful way you play. We loved your electric guitar also. We were so happy to see you return to this venue since we had been there before enjoying you for the first time. We were amazed them and again last night. Please come back soon. We will be there….

    Hi Eric,
    I don’t know if you remember me but I grew up near year home in Claremont and was friend or you and Tony. I can remember you playing guitar back when you were 5 or 6 years old. You could play Beatle songs off the radio by ear which was totally amazing for a kid that young so I knew then you would be some sort of musician later in life. Congradulations on your music and carreer. would love to see you in perform in the Laguna Beach area sometime. We live in Reno but have a condo in Aliso Viejo. My son is into skim boarding and I believe you were at one time also.

    Look so forward to Feb 28 in Laguna!!!

  9. Mark Haley says:

    Be happy
    Your Ever Well-Wisher,

    Eric, you appear extremely focused when you’re playing. I watched you play Moon Light Sonata, I think that focus is the key ingredient for learning to play well. I myself find it somewhat difficult when one has to play in a group class because its like I’m competing with others to learn something new which is stressful. At the same time, its pleasure to be in the company of other guitarist. Consequently, I reverted to private lessons where Julliard is located. In reading your account about the boy who didn’t practice I learned from what you learned working with this boy. Thanks for the tip about the subconscious mind learning and retaining more than we realize.
