Jimi Hendrix


In his brief four-year reign as a superstar, Jimi Hendrix expanded the vocabulary of the electric rock guitar more than anyone before or since. Hendrix was a master at coaxing all manner of unforeseen sonics from his instrument, often with innovative amplification experiments that produced astral-quality feedback and roaring distortion.

As time progressed,Jimi still stayed way ahead of it, with ELECTRIC LADYLAND being immortalized w/ WATCHTOWER & VOODOO CHILE(SLIGHT RETURN).

Mindblowing as a songwriter. This talent is nearly always overlooked for his guitar work. It's about time Jimi is recognised as much for his songwriting as his guitar playing, performing, production, etc. Underrated as hell.
