^I believe he was making fun of people who liked Yngwie more than Jimi. He wasn't saying Yngwie was better.

His post agreed with you. So, with all due respect, it appears to be you that sucks

I bought axis:bold as love! The title track is my new favourite song.

THe album itself is great, you can see hohw much jimi has progressed as a songwriter - its tighter, more focused and the longest track is 5mins. Theres also more of a funk jazz and soul influence.

IMO hndrixs later albvum are the best....

I think it was because Jimi was being an uptight bastard, or something in that vein.

Best guitarist ever, my favourites are 'Machine Gun' and '1983...(A Merman I Should Turn To Be)'. Best album = 'Electric Ladyland'. He never had a good enough bassist, though; I don't like the tone of Redding's bass, or Cox's, for that matter.

They had some kind of arguement in the studio. By the time, Redding wasn't happy cos Hendrix had all the fame.

Does anyone know what Hendrix means by 'First Rays of the Rising Sun'? I know it's a song title, but it seems to be some concept that Jimi had about a revolution that was happening or something. At Woodstock he says to the crowd:

"Give us a minute and a half to tune up, okay? Like, we only had, like, two rehearsals. So, we'd like to do nothing but primary rhythm things. But, I mean, this is the first ray of the new rising sun anyway."

IDK, it's gotta mean something...

I think it's simply a metaphor for the new band. At the time I'm sure he expected that group he at Woodstock, Gypsy Suns and Rainbows, to become the new band he would focus with.

The first rays, obviously, would represent the fact that this was the first time they would be seen publicly, as well as the fact that they were still jamming for one of the first times as a band.

However, we all know that this line-up would end rather quickly, and turn into Band of Gypsys, which comprised of Jimi Hendrix, Billy Cox, and Buddy Miles.

Yeah, I suppose Gypsy Sun and Rainbows was kind of a new era for him (moving on from The Experience), even if it did end up only playing two shows. But he did call that song 'First Rays...' as well so it could just mean a general progression in his music.
What do you guys think of the Woodstock performance? It gets bashed a lot but I love the way it's all improvised.

I feel that same way.

I think it's interesting to hear, and even though there are some rough places in the show, I enjoy most of it.

God, I don't know why I haven't been to this thread yet.

As cliche as it sounds, if it wasn't for Jimi, we wouldn't have psychadelic rock, we wouldn't have feedback orgies, and we really wouldn't have all the amazing rock guitarists we have today. So many guitarists ranging from Stevie Ray Vaughn to Ray Toro have been inspired by Jimi. I love him.

Plus, he has some of my favorite riffs of all time (Foxey Lady, Castles Made Of Sand, In From The Storm). He is truely a revolutionist.

I wouldn't say we wouldn't have Psychedelic Rock without Hendrix, but he definitely played a part in defining it.

There's a really good Box Set collection called Nuggets that has a collection of underground Psychedelic bands that were relatively unknown back in the day apart from the local venues they played.

He also played a pretty big part in starting up the hard rock thang, which in turn became heavy metal...

^I honestly don't see any "hard rock" elements in Jimi's music. I do, however, as prbably all you have noticed that every guitar solo around has elements of Jimi's soloing. Think about it, the crazy bends and double-stops, even the really fast playing, all of it is linked to Jimi. I'm just saying that his music wasn't hard rock although it did inspire hard rock guitarists.

Yeh that's what I meant. 'Drix himself wasn't hard rock but hard rock owes a lot to him.

Really? I don't think so...

I haven't listened to the song in a while (at least not Jimi's version), but the opening to GuitarPro doesn't really resemble the song to me.

I could very well be wrong, though.
