    Many pros cite Jimi Hendrix as a major influence, but one can be influenced by a player and yet not necessarily sound like that player.

    Of all the guitar players to come after Hendrix, who sounds or sounded most like him? I don't necessarily mean tone, but rather in their playing and writing style, their choice of chord voicings, progressions, general style, etc.

    I would venture the guy who once claimed he took acid met Jimi and woke up playing like him.

    That lead tone is gnarly.

    Mike Mcready does a great job of sounding like Jimi...my favourite song....



    many Pearl Jam songs have great Jimi influenced parts (or whole songs).

    Do we have to mention SRV or Robin Trower?

    More recently I will cite the heavily Hendrix/Coltrane (and James Brown, and Muddy Waters etc) influenced Jean Paul Bourelly, father of the very successful songwriter Bibi Bourelly.


    Another great one split among Hendrix, Bob Dylan and James Brown was the late Jef Lee Johnson (Philly's own, gone too soon)

    This guy, IMO.
    He has his own game, too.
    Great player!

    I hear quite a bit of the Hendrix attitude in Eric Gale's playing.

    Jon Butcher, but a lot of his stuff is out of print.

    Thanks for posting. I "liked" it because Frank Marino was an influence when I was starting out back in high school (mid-late 70's).

    But I saw him several years ago, and wasn't really into him anymore, as it all just seemed like endless guitar wanking, and he did very little singing. I actually always liked his singing and his songs, but I don't need to hear 30 minute guitar solos from anyone.

    But I will be curious to check these out just for fun.

    On a pseudo-related subject: If someone made a Frank Marino signature SG (the one he designed, that has a Maestro whammy and Strat pickups), I think it would sell like hotcakes. It's very cool looking, and unique.

    Funny, though I have known about him for years as a Hendrix "impersonator", I never listened to him before. He's pretty close on the vocals, that's for sure.

    Stevie Ray carried Hendrix throughout his playing - even when it wasn’t so obvious. He had his own tone and Blues infected sensibilities, but Jimi was always there lurking...

    I think your right it's a nice version of the SG. For those interested you can see it here:

    The greatest, most technical, “Hendrix like” guitar player since Hendrix has to be this angel of melody.

    The gentleman who does a lot of Hendrix demos on youtube whose name
    is Enrique, if i'm not mistaken. His version of " Drifting " is fantastic! :cool:
