an interesting listen and lots of factual details , enjoy if you will
Thanks for posting @24 track
I've got the book Electric Gypsy that gives a great rundown. Although he's known for the Strat/Marshall he owned lots of amps and guitars.
Jimi was also instrumental in the developement of SUNN amps , their add said Jimi Uses these exclusively I think he only did 3 gigs with them LOL
I have a SUNN Sonaro and Matching Sunn 15 cab, they sound good but its not my JCM800
Dizzying yet fascinating, like Jimi. No wonder I was so in awe of him. I found it remarkable that after quite a procession of guitars pawned, stolen, given away or just ‘gone’ he did his first USA tour with only one.
Thanks for the link.
Yes, it was a rather short-lived experience... (no disrespect to Jimi)
Interesting account of the aforementioned in Electric Gypsy (IMO, the definitive biography of James Marshall Hendrix)
whats really cool is he did all that he did in just slightly over 2 years then he was gone, to be truthful I was never fond of his direct leads but his interchord melodics blow me away
this piece is so beautiful yet impromptu it shows his genius
Nice. I watched this in a Woodstock documentary on a plane a few weeks ago.
The inspiration for my black and Olympic white strats
Super thanks for posting this. Quite interesting and well done.
its great to have documented facts around the details , some how it places everything in perspective,
I'm glad you all enjoyed this as much as I did.
Besides playing Strats, there is one thing that I learned from Hendrix that is significant to me. His use of coil cords. Many guitarists I’ve talked to think that a discussion of coil cords and Strats is ridiculous. But I find their effect on Strat tone to be profound and beneficial. Just google some pictures of Hendrix playing his Strats. You will see that he used coil cords with his Strats.
I have a 60's heavey duty glow in the dark coily cable that works beautifully , you can see it in this pic with my 60's Beltone amps and my Beltone guitar
Nice! I have a half dozen, from vintage to new. They all sweeten up my Strat.
He played a mean accordion as well.
I liked those videos. I'm actually going to look forward to the amp/effect video that he teased at the end of the video the most
Hendrix was left handed. That’s a right handed accordion.
While visiting London many year ago, my wife and I visited the Hard Rock vault. A highlight of my life was being handed his Isle of Wight Flying V.
That's just sick! There oughta be a law...
