One thing I admire about Hendrix is how he makes race not matter. When u think about Jackie Robinson, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan any person who was great at something and also a minority thats one of the first things that comes to mind (ashamed to say) but with Hendrix, it isn't something you completely forget but its something that isn't a big deal its just kinda there. I think its really cuz of how powerful his music is and how much feelings it expresses makes you forget about the fact that he was a black male in a time when blacks were looked down upon.

The movie is called Hendrix. And I liked it as well. That at certain angles he looked and acted just like him.

Also about race not comig to mind when thinking bout him, same thing hear. Most people think first off about his music and don't even think about his color. Also from what I've heard and read he did have a lot of trouble playing in the south in his time with instances such as cops refusing to do security for his show because he was balck with white people were even mad at him for playing the music he did because they either felt he was spreading "black music" or ruining music that whites played.

Yeah I can't really say how ppl might of felt back then about Jimi's race, that might be different (idk i wasn't alive) but like now you don't really think about it. More about his image rather than his skin color.

Jimi Hendrix is one of my favorite artists of all time. My favorite album is Axis: Bold As Love. Its so strong and melodic and beautiful. Its rather underrated due to the fact is smashed between two hard rock benchmarks (Are You Experienced?, Electric Ladyland) I own all of his albums and they are some of the most enjoyable peices of music I have ever heard.

^agreed. I think thats my favorite album too. Its not as loud as some of his other songs but most of all it just seems much better rhytmically. Idk just my opinion tho

Most likely the former, becauseeven the most uneducated redneck probably knew that rock was based off of the blues.

I hate people like this. You listen to Wild Thing and Purple Haze and think 'hey I can play that riff, the solo's not too hard either...damn...Hendrix isn't that great, he's not even half as fast as Malmsteen!!' Then you completely ignore his beautiful songs (Little Wing, his cover of Like A Rolling Stone, Castles Made of Sand, The Wind Cries Mary etc.) which evoke the most beautiful emotions, songs which only Hendrix (sorry but I've never heard another guitarist who could ever even come close to writing those songs) could create. He wasn't just distortion and playing with his teeth! He was an artist.

hmmm, i'm pretty sure I read his first hit Hey Joe got to number 6, but that was in britain and maybe VH1 refer to america.

So, which version of Red House does everyone prefer?

I'm partial to the sloppier one on the Blues record.

Try playing this pointless noise and you will see why he is great. And if great musicians like Buddy Guy, and Jim Morrison respect him, then he must have been good. I also can't stand VH1, and, athough I am not a huge fan of Hendrix as far as his overall sound, he was hands down the most skilled guitarist that ever lived. Zeppelin are my favorite too, I actually just fell into them when I heard Whole Lotta Love for the first time in about 4 years, and was instantly hooked. You just don't have the mind to appreciate good music. Although I don't even know is this is true, VH1 wouldn't rate them high if they weren't good.

Do you mean the Electric Church one? I think that's on the blues CD. Whatever, it's my favourite. The intro makes my hair stand on end.

There are a couple versions of Red House on the Blues CD. There is one just titled "Red House" and that is my favorite. Very sloppy playing but it reveals Jimi's soul.

Yeah. I think the one just called Red House is the album version, not sure though. I prefer the electric chirch one cos it's longer but not too long and beacuse I think his improv is great on it. But I like both.

The one called Red House is the album version but it is obviously an alternate take. I like both a lot too, I just prefer one a little more than the other.

k so I talked to my guitar teacher about this today. Im just starting to learn the second solo. First off hendrix is playing 2 strings and bending the lower string of the two a full step. Starts out like this and you are bending the 2nd string a full step. (btw another example of this is Dazed and Confused right before the solo)
|-9-------|
|-(12)---|
|---------|
|---------|
|---------|

There is also flanging going on but its not electronic its like old school flanging. They would take the two tapes and put them in sync at first and then they would allow one of the tapes to become slightly out of sync (but not to the extent of echo or delay) to create the sound. You can hear it on the drums too. If you really want ill finish the tab for the ending solo but my teacher hasn't given me the full thing yet. Just PM if u care that much.

You are an idiot, when you were writing this I hope you equiped your flame shield... first off Malmseen is ****E compared to jimi Hendrix. Jimi played with so much emotion that you can't see it and you'de rather go watch some asshole playing so fast that his fingers set alight and by the end of his songs you don't have any insight into his soul or his feelings...you suck
