You and I would get along well.I think Jimi was the most innovative guitar player ever. "Voodoo Chile" is probably my favorite song ever.
Do it!You and I would get along well.
Ive been into just about everything at one point or another except new country. I keep coming back to the late 60's, early 70's stuff and Hendrix was where it was at.
Voodoo Chile is phenomenal. I used to do a lot of guitar playing and recording and had decided to learn to play that song. The software I use can slow the music but keep the pitch and it was a good tool to learn his stuff. The problem with that song is when you slow it down, you discover there are more notes that you don't normally pick up at normal tempo. Its ridiculous. A tough one for sure.
I can play the purple haze solo in a druken stooper for HOURS straight. It is not too hard but takes a while to get that sound. Most of the classics I have down. I was going to throw up a youtube video at some point, but was honestly waiting for the queen movie release to post the bohemian rhapsody solo but the movie was cancelled
I might just do it anyway.
I did see the Doors. Seating kinda sucked. It was at a place here they call Public Hall better suited for circuses than concerts. Even though I was about 75 feet back from the stage it was floor seating and of course everyone stood on their folding chairs so it was a bitch trying to see over other people and keep your balance. Saw Joplin too from the nose bleed seats (and I mean the very last top row in the middle) and practically needed binos to see her. Saw E.C. and Cream too in a theatre setting--that was good--was amazed back then with Ginger Baker played two complete sets of drums.Damn dude, consider yourself lucky. I would have liked to see the Door's as well. However, Jimi and Jim both died when I was about one year's old.
One of the best songs of all time by anybody. One night in the late 60's at a party where the guy had a $5000 stereo, every time Hendrix would strum his guitar, my life would flash before my eyes. A night I will never forget. GARY
