An overrated guitarist that would get absolutely destroyed by a lot of today's guitarists.

Also comparing him to Stevie Ray Vaughan is like comparing platinum to crap, Stevie being the platinum and Jimi being the crap of course.
Jimi Hendrix did not do anything special with his guitar, people only thing he did special things because he played with his teeth and lit his guitar on fire.
It's such a pity that so many people are so ignorant to think that he's the "Greatest".















Me: Stevie Ray Vaughan was the greatest guitarist ever.

Ignorant Fool: No Jimi Hendrix was.

Me: Really? Is that why Stevie Ray Vaughan did Jimi Hendrix covers that are way better than the originals plus his own original songs that are also better.

Ignorant Fool: Derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Jimi Lit his guitar on fire.

Me: You're a flippen idiot.

Ignorant Fool: No you.

An excellent guitarist. Known to break the boundaries of guitar playing - in such ways as plucking the strings with his teeth (He recorded the American national anthem this way) and setting his guitar neck on fire while playing in concert. Don't ask.

He is also the author of one of the strangest and greatest quotes of all time:

"Excuse me, while I kiss the sky."
Jimi Hendrix is one awesome guitar player! All modern guitar players look up to him, guaranteed.

The best rock guitarist in the history of mankind. When Jimi played, the guitar seemed to be part of his body just like another limb. He was a master at mixing lead and rhythm guitar together. Unlike most guitarists, he didn't need anyone backing him up, even when he played a solo!
Jimi Hendrix could make his guitar sound like a machine gun!

ok lets clear this thing up right fucking now. Slash has nothing on Jimi Hendrix. If you think Slash is better than Jimi you are a <Fucking Moron?>.

Jimi was the best guitarist ever. no-one has ever and no-one can and no-one will master the guitar like Hendrix did.
And now bringing to you the best guitarist of all time...SLASH! eeer..no

Where as Slash will be an overweight burn-out in a few years, Hendrix rocks on from the grave

The most creative guitarist of all time. Before Jimi Hendrix you never saw anyone play like he did. Had so much talent he could play the guitar with his eyes closed on the ground using his teethe. The drugs he used was part of the reason why he was so creative with his music. Purple Haze was his most known song and is regarded as one of the greatest rock songs of all time with one of the greatest guitar riffs. All Along the Watchtower holds Jimi Hendrix's best guitar solo and one of the greatest guitar solos of all time. Hendrix was in a band called The Jimi Hendrix Experience, his other band members are not well known but were very talented as well. The Experience's drummer, Mitch Mitchell is one of the greatest drummers of all time, very few drummers were as good as him at the time. His talent is witnessed in the song Fire which has excellent drumming. The Experience released 3 full albums. Are You Experienced? is known as one of the greatest debut albums of all time and one of the greatest psychadellic albums of all time. Hendrix's fame fell short after a inhalation of vommit caused by barbituate Seconol intoxication killing him immediately September 18th, 1970.
R.I.P. Jimi Hendrix

The GREATEST guitar player ever to walk God's green earth. He mastered every possible effect and pioneered new forms of playing.

A self-taught guitarist who developed into a virtuoso and became the most accomplished and influential musician in the history of rock music. Hendrix spent years traveling on the chitlin circuit, learning the blues and honing his craft. He landed in New York's Harlem and Greenwich Village, trying to make a name for himself and nearly starving to death. He caught a break by going to England and showing them what an authentic bluesman really is. From October 1966 to September 1970 Hendrix took music to heights in had never been. Drugs, women, and the music business killed him at age 27.
Dude, when Jimi Hendrix played that solo with his teeth I fell out of my chair.
