An amazingly talented guitarist, with signature songs like Voodoo Child, Little Wing, Purple Haze, Red House, All Along the Watchtower, The Star Spangled Banner...etc. He only got to live for 27 years, but he was then easily remembered as the greatest guitarist in the world. He became the reason people learn to play guitar.

My personal favorite guitarist ever. Rolling Stone put him #1 on their list, "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time". Could not read music yet played like he'd had lessons since the first day of his life. I'd like to know, how the hell is he overrated, and not the best guitarist ever?

Some complaints against him:

1. He was limited to the blues and a 4/4 time frame.
a. Sure his songs all had that time frame, but if you think he was limited to the blues than you're a fucking douche. He had rock songs, blues songs, and psychadelic songs. So yeah, more than blues.

2. He plays very sloppy guitar.
a. Think again, dumbass. Recording technology back then didn't allow him the same clarity as bands in later decades, so the music occasionally sounded like crap. But the man himself played neatly.

3. Jimi can't play very fast, nor does he have good techniques.
a. One person wrote that he played the same scales and keys all the time. Wrong, he had great variety. And bullshit that he can't play fast, just listen to the alternate recording of Spanish Castle Magic for some fast stuff. Besides, speed isn't everything otherwise DragonForce would be the best band, right?

4. He's not the greatest guitarist ever, many have surpassed his skill.
a. Such idiotic words. He hadn't played guitar for very long, couldn't read or write music, made amazing solos and riffs on the spot, and kicked everyone's ass. How many others can say the same thing? Oh, zero. Because he does kick everyone's ass. No one is better, not Malmsteen, Vai, Satriani, Slash, Van Halen, Page; not anyone. He beats the shit out of them all.

5. ur a fag for likin him! Jimi suxx ballz! u stupid gay queer homo!!!1!1!!11!!!!
a. Okay, nobody's said this (that I know of).
Zeppelin Listener: "Jimmy plays such great guitar, he's the best ever man."

Hendrix Listener: "I know, I just heard "All Along the Watchtower and it blew my mind."

ZL: "No, dumbfuck. I mean Jimmy Page. Hendrix is good but not the best."

HL: "You ever heard much Hendrix before?"

ZL: "No."

One hour later...

Converted ZL: "Holy shit was I wrong. Jimi is the fucking man."

HL: "Dur."

Emo: *Cries* "You don't even know what good music is, motherfuckers!" *Slits wrist* "You should listen to bands like Silverstein! Their screamo fills me up with hate and pain yet it feels so good!"

CZL & HL: "Shut the fuck up you damn emo!"

Emo: "Leave Britney alone!" *Commits Suicide*

Gangsta: "Yo, mothafuckaz. Why you frontin' yo' wack-ass skillz? I'm gon' bus' a cap in yo' azz!"

Jimi Hendrix: *Regenerates and plays Voodoo Child solo*

Gangsta: *Head Explodes*

Most of this was a lame attempt at humor. If you find it at all funny than I seriously don't know what to say. The definition's a bit better though.

You guys don't know jack about Jimi Hendrix.

Jimi Hendrix is the ultimate musical genious of our world. He is better at guitar dead than anyone on earth today. We should all be put to shame for having spoken his name, for we are unworthy.
Jimi Hendrix is god.
