Thanks, I enjoyed that. If there is a better rock guitarist than Jimi, I have yet to hear them.

Somewhere between Robert Johnson and Coltrane ....a place that only Jimi occupies ....I didn`t hear one "lick" in there ...a lot of balls and heart though

Best 6:53 I have spent in a while.

Anyone notice that he had 5 trem springs. Geez - how's he do those massive dive bombs with 5 trem springs? :huh :huh

Even the way he ends the song is original beyond any expectation. God I wish he was alive today and jamming with Jeff Beck! On tour, just like Winwood & Clapton And thinking of that Jimi & Stevie touring would be very cool.

I'm totally with you on that, but surely we'd be reading threads about how "he's lost the fire" or "only got all those early props because he was in the right place at the right time" and--my favorite--"plenty of players today are better than him but never caught a break." :NUTS

Very true Angus. It is sad to see how so many on a guitar players forum are intolerent of other, especially succesful players.
