"o man that dude plays like jimi hendrix"
The most famous Psychedelic rock star in the world.
He was known mostly for his wild "trippy" style of playing.
He used techniques of recording such as: playing pre-recorded guitar riffs backwards, using the ever famous Cry-Baby, Octavia, and other various forms of overdrive, simple sounds effects made by the mouth, recorded then slowed down or looped in various ways, and countless others
He was a player of emotion, in which his mood affected the way he played. Songs were mostly about events that happened in his life. He was influenced and was an influence to several musicians of different genres.
Most believe that Hendrix died of an O.D. of barbiturates, true, but it was this and the combination of wine that caused him to vomit, thus suffocating in his own digestive juices. Some say that he was not turned over in his transport to the hospital, thus the above happened.
He died upon arrival.
His effects mastery is present in: Drifting, Room full of Mirrors, I Don't Live Today, Are You Experienced?, Purple Haze, Have You Ever Been ( to Electric Ladyland), and many more...
Jimi Hendrix was plagued with depression, no one had his same goals in the music industry.
Before you disrespect a true legend, consider the fact that backstabbing is what caused more of his stress than anything.
Stress kills, this is a prime example.
Besides, learn how to spell people!
LONG LIVE THE PSYCHEDELICS!
he pioneered the new wave of rock, many guitarists look up to him, no doubt about it,the great guitarists even worship him
Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)

Jimi Hendrix remains ahead of his time way past his all to unfortunate death.he paralyzes,inspires and defines evocative music. My mom played his music endlessly hence I his Voodoo Child.
If you have Jimi HenDrix and Janis Joplin you have a complete music collection.
Jimi is unbelievable...he was left-handed (like me) never learned to read or write music, and played a right-handed guitar upside down...the only other person who ever did that was paul mccartney
Hendrix rocks FOREVER
JIMI HENDRIX is SIMPLY GOD
HE IS GOD DO DA DO DA HAVE i USED UP 20 LETTERS YET

Hendrix is god!!!!

The most amazing guitarist of this or any other generation. He was inventive, incredibly talented, and probably the coolest guy ever. Only Zeppelin can challenge him as a great rock act. His great riffs and lyrics brought rock into its age. He was at Monterey and Woodstock, where his perfromance of the Spar Spangled Banner made him a legend. Jimi Hendrix was more than a man, he was a god.
Jimi Hendrix is dead. :(
