Worlds Greatest Guitarist
Jimi Hendrix playing Voodoo Chile is the definitive guitar tune. I still remember the day in 1970 when my friend told me that Hendrix had died, it was the 19th of September and the news came to me a day late. I was 14 years old and had already subconsciously decided that Jimi Hendrix was going to replace Jesus as my idol, so the news was frightening and for the next 10 years I had the opening line of All Along the Watchtower and the riff from Voodoo Chile running through my head at regular intervals, only to be replaced every now and then by the jazz legend Wes Montgomery playing his gorgeous octaves and Carlos Santana playing the outrageously romantic Samba Pa Ti.
So, seeing I was so addicted to the music of Jimi in my teens, I thought it only fitting to make my first youtube at the Electric Guitarist Blog Website, Hendrix doing one of the tunes that even to this day lturns my head inside out.
Actually I got a spooked by Hendrix when I was 15, I heard a gutar player playing on the radio, and I thought “ohhrr Hendrix wasn’t that good”, and this is not a lie, a glass window smashed on my head. It never did any damage but scarred the living daylights out of me. Jimi Hendrix inspired me to follow through on the Rainbow Bridge and the song that came out of that movie and was also on the album called the Rainbow Bridge was Pali Gap, a beautiful haunting instrumental which few people ever mention.
