Jimi Hendrix = Buddy Guy?

For me they are almost the same, everytime i listen to buddy i just hear hendrix with less energy, just listen.

For some reason this is annoying the hell out of me.

Buddy


If you wouldn't see the video the beginning would be 100% hendrix.
Even the singing.

Jimi


I just had to point it out, i'm sure you all know, but every song just sounds the same.

How do you hear any of the psychedelic or rock elements Jimi had in his music, let alone the same use of effects or song structures? Buddy Guy is a straight blues player, Jimi had a lot of other things going for him besides that. Hell, even their phrasing is different. I think you need to listen to more blues, sir.

The hammer-ons and the bends just sound so familiar, it seems like he copied alot of his licks.. etc..

Buddy Guy copied licks from Jimi Hendrix? Do you know how many licks Hendrix 'copied', by the very nature of playing the blues? Yeah. It's a self referential genre.

Plus, there's the fact that Buddy Guy was one of Hendrix's favourite guitarists. Buddy Guy must have time traveled into the future to steal licks from Jimi.

I meant Hendrix copying from Buddy, buddy has some unique licks that other blues guitarists don't use, but Hendrix does. I just think they are similiar.

This. Jimi idolized Buddy Guy,and I believe they were good friends.Most of the blues players of that era were not in support of Hendrix.They felt his music catered to honkies.

Pentatonic and blues scales have nothing to do with being hippie, I'm sorry but I must say that's a ******ed comment really...
