I said "us mortal guitarists".
You don't qualify!
Yep, I hear what your talking about, I like that
We all have a voice. We all have music inside us trying to get out. Tap into the music inside you. If Hendrix helps you reach that place, then great. But don't try to play like Hendrix...play like you.
I have no choice but to be me. It's all I know.
Nice groove you got der @fezz parka!!!
Did Peter Frampton call asking you to return his riff? Kidding aside you show how using some creativity you can create something new while envoking something from the pass... the B3 and production give it dat voodoo vibe.
Something I did around 2001

i sometimes find myself thinking, 'What would Jimi have done musically if he'd been
around for a while longer?' The advances in instrument and recording technology
would definitely have influenced him, and he was always about looking forward
even while remaining linked to the great things that had preceded him...
Something i did 3 days ago:
In The 808
Though I think it is the rawness of the sound that keeps me going back to listen to Hendrix.
It's crude, uncooked meat and yet so rich in texture...erm... to me at least..
But I will say I prefer SRV's cover of Voodoo Chile over the original...
Absolutely more than anyone .... the real lesson for me was let the music flow out from inside, we’re not robots ( at least l think we’re not). There’s beauty in going big.... flaws an all
I don't. And can enjoy both the same.
Most times I hear a cover my reaction is "did we need to hear this? what's the point?.." But never did I react that way hearing SRV covering whoever. He sure added texture, colours and the resulting product was always an addition to the original, rather than "here we go again..."
And I'm the opposite.
I certainly took a lot from Hendrix, have copied him and have also not copied him. I like many diverse stuff so I get bored with just one thing, but I can pull the Hendrix stuff when I went to. The thing about Jimi to me is that he had a very unique touch, a unique connection with the guitar and music, and was also one of the most "in time" musicians, in the sense of playing in time, grooving. He rarely played a misplaced note. Time to me comes before notes in music. I think its mandatory that every guitarist pays attention to Hendrix in one way or another. I've seen some great imitators out there and its fine to me. I'm most inspired by how he could pull some amazing intricate stuff from the top of his head on the fly, and not just the minutiae of his style. Although some Hendrix style rhythm is something every guitarist should know at least a little bit. Stuff like his two string slipping bends, thumb use and some licks can be beneficial to be incorporated onto one's style.
He’s a big inspiration so I think that comes across sometimes in my playing. I think I’ve just picked up some of his stank by ear osmosis, never really sat and tried to work out specific licks.
Nice! I liked the Frampton lick you threw in there.
Great playing there!
Ya know, it's kinda funny, to me, anyway.........
I got my first "Are You Experienced" sometime around my 12th birthday, and it's one of those albums that made me wanna take up guitar and learn to play.
For me, the conundrum was the prevailing attitude of the Baptist Church I attended. The hard rock music (anything by Led Zepplin, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, & etc.) of 1968 was detested by my church, and most churches of the South where I'm from. They strongly preached against that stuff then.
Fast forward to 2019. While playing worship music at my Baptist church I attend now, I regularly throw in some "The Wind Cries Mary"-like chord embellishments in some of our songs, and now get more compliments about how nice it sounds. Go figger.......
I define excellence as doing the beat you can with what you have e where you are right now. Excellence is a choice. You can choose to do your best or you can choose to not do your best.
At our best we use our talents to convey something. Anything less is falling short.
