OK my last classic rock band thread sank, but this one i think really should be on top of things. This is a thread where we can enjoy and talk about the greatness of the most invoated guitarist ever.

Jimi hendrix got me into rock music without him i would be lost inbetween a sea of rap and simple plan.


Jimi needs no introduction, talk away.

I think we can all agree that his cover of Bob Dylan's All Around the Watchtower is probably the greatest cover song of all time, if not the greatest classic rock song of all time.

Also really love the song Power to Love. so great!!

How about the song Burning of the Midnight Lamp. That song has an amazing intro that I love to play over and over on my guitar.

Greatest cover song of all time...
...Talking Heads - Take Me To The River. :D

But in all seriousness, Hendrix is an awesome guitarist. Not the best technically, but without a doubt the greatest guitarist of all time.

I love Hendrix. I have Band of Gypsys, AYE, Electric Ladyland, and a greatest hits. I always switch between my favorite. I really love Band of Gypsys and Electric Ladyland, just amazing. AYE is amazing too, just not up to those standards. I don't own Bold As Love, but I've listened to it a couple times and didn't think it was as good as Electric Ladyland or AYE. I really want Live At Woodstock.

I've got his three album with the Experience, Band of Gypsys, First Rays of the New Rising Sun, Martin Scorsese:Jimi Plays the Blues(something like that), The new 2 disc Woodstock DVD, Band of Gypsies DVD and Live at Berkley DVD.

You could say I enjoy his music.

Meh, Im not much of a hendrix fan. He was a good guitarist though and very innovative, but just not my style.

10-31-2005, 03:11 PM
ha, im listening to him right now, his song If 6 Was 9, I like that one because it tells you to be yourself, don't copy others. He has to be my favorite musician, his whole style and pshycadelic rock feel, and how he puts emotions into music.

IMO bold as love is his best album together with electric ladyland. You cant compare them because they are so different.
I think Jimi Hendrix is the coolest guitarist ever to have lived. Not the greatest or most innovative but the coolest :cool:

power to love is on the band of gypsys live cd and burning of the midnight lamp is off of electric ladyland.

i have all 3 experience albums, band of gypsys, the 4 disc box set, 3 bootlegs, first rays of the new rising sun, live at woodstock, albert hall experience, bbc sessions, jimi blues, live at berkeley, live at winterland, live at woodstock, and the monterey pop festival.

Axis Bold as Love is among the best classic rock albums ever.

Axis Bold As Love, the song, is one of the best songs I have ever heard in my life.

Jimi is incredible. His riffs spanned more genres than he gets credit for.

That song is also a bitch to memorize. It's a one long giant solo. So is AATW.

Just a testament to how good he really is.

Can anyone here play Fire or Purple Haze?

I can play "Purple Haze." Never really tried to learn to play "Fire" however.

(On guitar right?)

Yeah on guitar. Fire is easy during the intro and verses but it can be a bitch during the chorus. The solo is so easy that I wasn't sure it was written by Jimi. j/k. Just a full bend on the 15th fret on 2nd string plus a couple of other notes.


Purple haze has an awesome intro.

Voodoo Child (slight return) is a pain to memorize. I got to the end of the first solo and just decided to improvise the rest.

Yeah, I get to the first verse and then I'm kinda stumped. I managed to get to the second solo on AATW. I just need to find a good slide and get my wah fixed. Then I can finish learning that and the rest of Burning of the Midnight Lamp. (possibly jimi's best intro to a song. IMO)

I'm a big fan of mitch and yes he kinda had to stand in the shadow of Jimi
cause Jimi was so new and happening (so was mitch..but not as much as Jimi)

I'm not a huge fan of redding I personally like Cox's funky rythym
more. But still Noel was one heck of a player

Jimi Hendrix is so sweet. its to bad he had to die. he learned to play when he was 17 years old and died when he way 29. That is crazy that he only played for 12 years and did what he did for rock and roll. another great thing about jimi is his music is very much the style of music that is being played today. The man was just simpley amazing. I wish i could go back in time and go to woodstock. im only 16 years old and jimi hendrix is who got me into rock instead of the crap thats played today. however there is some good rock being played today. and who ever says stevie ray vaugn is the greatest guitarist of all time, get out of here, because if it weren't for jimi, stievie wouldnt have made it. however, jimmy page and eric clapton are among the best of all time. what are your thoughts of the greatest guitarist of all time?

No, no bootlegs. Just a few live shows, and the Blues album, which is amazing.

Woodstock
11-02-2005, 04:30 PM
No, but I've heard about it. It sounds great. The only Hendrix material on the actual Woodstock film is Purple Haze, Voodoo Child, and his jam, so it would be awesome his full performance.

My favorite song off of Are You Experienced would have to be Can You See Me. But i believe Voodoo Child (Slight Return) to be the greatest electric guitar performance in my opinion. Mitch was indeed a phenomenal drummer, but as a bass player, I don't exactly have a liking for Noel Redding.

Britton

He and Moon and Bonham and probably Ginger Baker were the first drummers to really grab the listener's attention, I think.

I find SRV's version of "Little Wing" to be very tiresome, actually :-\

It's a great album, and is definitely essential though I'd say the Experience as heard on the studio albums is better. Maybe just because it's a live album, so it's not as refined. Jimi's music in the studio and Jimi's music on stage is like two different works of art.

Yeah, it's definitely a very different kind of sound than with the Experience, more R+B and soul, and also maybe a little darker, as is obvious with Machine Gun. I think it would be interesting to hear what it would sound like if AYE, Axis and EL were made with the Band of Gypsys instead of the Exp.

Band of Gypsies is probably my favorite Hendrix album. I like live albums in general more than studio albums. My favorite is always either Band of Gypsies or Electric Ladyland but usually Band of Gypsies is on top. Are You Experienced is just below them, but I feel that Bold as Love isn't quite as consistent as the others.

i would quite like another album by jimi,(first rays of the rising sun) and i want more but i dont know which one to get ive heard that are you experienced? is the best or Electric Ladyland and i dont know anything bout Band of gypsies or axis: bold as love. how do they compare

Britton
11-04-2005, 02:42 PM
Well it's really a matter of opinion.

I really like al of them (I'm one of those uber fanboys)

I would say that R U EXP is one of those albums that you get on a saturday go
to you're room with some friends and just hang out all day with. Axis is along
the lines of something I would listen to with my Gal. Band of G's is for chillin
too...but then again it has some get up and go.

I really like New rising sun. THough so it's really up to you

what do you have of him?

mono12
11-04-2005, 02:54 PM
First rays of new rising sun 4/5
some cd where he plays the blues (Jimi Hendrix:Blues) 4/5

Lots of other songs,

Fire (live) 4/5
Purple haxe (live @ woodstock) 5/5
Little wing 5/5
Red house (live and studio) 5/5 (has anyone got a version of this called Electic Church Red House its the best ive heard.)
Bleeding heart 2/5
Hey Joe (live) 5/5
Voodoo chile Slight return 5/5

some of those live versions are really badly mixed

Hmmm... I would say that Axis:Bold as Love is almost a fusion album. It's my personal favorite, I think it shows his best songwriting skills, and his best tone. It's a little jazzy. Are You Experienced? is more a hard rock album with all his known songs, but I don't think that it displays his best talent as a songwriter.

He sings on a song called she's so fine. It's weird cause the music

and yes FROTNRS is a whole album. Hendrix was almost complete with it
at the time of his death. Sadly he was unable to finish it. THe album was
split up among several tribute albums and later put back together in
1997. I can hook you up too if you'd like.

AYE is amazing too, just not up to those standards. I don't own Bold As Love, but I've listened to it a couple times and didn't think it was as good as Electric Ladyland or AYE. I really want Live At Woodstock.

Jimi Hendrix is so sweet. its to bad he had to die. he learned to play when he was 17 years old and died when he way 29. That is crazy that he only played for 12 years and did what he did for rock and roll. another great thing about jimi is his music is very much the style of music that is being played today. The man was just simpley amazing. I wish i could go back in time and go to woodstock. im only 16 years old and jimi hendrix is who got me into rock instead of the crap thats played today. however there is some good rock being played today. and who ever says stevie ray vaugn is the greatest guitarist of all time, get out of here, because if it weren't for jimi, stievie wouldnt have made it. however, jimmy page and eric clapton are among the best of all time. what are your thoughts of the greatest guitarist of all time?

Kind of a weird story but a good one.

I was browsing through the catalog at my College's library and I started typing in bands that I like just to mess around and I typed in Jimi and sure enough I find that the library had the original tab books to his first three albums. I checked them out and I'm now like 2 weeks overdue.

I love Hendrix. When I first got 'Voodoo Child' never before had I experienced such power and emotion in music. He's so unique in his playing style. Maybe not technically the best, but the emotion he expresses with his guitar in my opinion is unique to him and few others.

Here, I'll clarify the difference between musician and a hobbyist for you guys.


A musician is someone that has a strong love for music. So much so that it becomes part of his soul (if you believe in such a thing) He dedicates his life to the study of it and is the guy that is always on time to rehearsals and gigs. Even if he can't play worth a damn he is always there trying to learn something new and do things in music that had never been done before.


A hobbyist is the guy that got an instrument for christmas or for a birthday and kinda banged around on it but never got that intense devotion for it. He just plays around and acts like he's cool but really isn't. They are the biggest flakes and are guaranteed to never make it even on the local level.


Hope that clarified it some.

I made my rant because ppl were saying how Jimi sucks at guitar but makes great music and somehow that degenerated into a discussion of what makes a musician. I was trying to clarify that without being biased and it applies to all instruments and it isn't about how many you can play but how well you can play with the one that you do have.

a guitarist IS a musician. i'm tired of people trying to make some sort of nonexistent distinction between the two. guitarists, along with all other instrumentalists/vocalists, make MUSIC, plain and simple. if people weren't so damn analytical we wouldn't have such retarded arguments.

"uh he wasn't that good at guitar but he made good music."

what?!

yeah, i know this chef...he makes good food but can't cook very well.

makes sense huh?

...

:lol:

I can microwave some GREAT food but that does not mean that I can cook well.

Hendrix was a fabulous guitar player, but TECHNICALLY speaking, he was not as advanced as those today. That doesn't mean he wasn't as good of a musician.

obviously you didn't understand any of my analogies. basically, what you're saying is just as stupid as saying: "gee, the cars of the 60's and 70's don't have the ability of cars today."

...

NO SHIT.

and yet, with all the innovations and new techniqes of today, his music is still considered unparalled. obviously such a statement resides upon personal opinion, but many people would agree.

seriously, what you're trying to suggest makes absolutely no sense.

1 quick question. I'm trying to play the intro to Voodoo child (slight return) and I normally rock the wah on every 1/4 beat. Someone said I had to rock it on every note that I play. Is this true? Thanx for the info


Gotta go to work. :wave:


I just do it how I feel like doing it. I think Hendrix did it about every 1/4
but he played around with it too.

Those are awesome amps.

I already have the Dunlop Hendrix wah and I like it a lot. It's got great range (when the batteries are alive... I need more power adapters before that gig in 3 weeks). The Digitech Hendrix (and Clapton) I've heard good things about.

It's surprising to me. Recently I've seen tons of Hendrix shirts and sweatshirts all over school.

I really like the Valvetronix it's got good distortion and cleans and it's loud

When I was in SoundControl once, this guy started playing 'Purple Haze' using the wah pedal thing, It sounded awesome.

Which makes me think. What do you reckon is the best Hendrix Solo. I always liked the one from 'Vilanova Junction'.

You do have a point there.

Vai is a huge Jimi hendrix fan and loves to play sh*t like Red House.

And yeah SV and PG can both really shred. I'm just saying that Jimi knows how to take a simple delay or chorus or octavia and make rock anthems with them. SV has his moments but nothing nearly as magical as Jimi.
