I think im gonna try to learn Little Wing soon and am trying to decide which version to learn. Im not the greatest guitarist but im not a beginner either. I have already started to learn the Hendrix version but am wondering if i should switch to the SRV version. Is the SRV version easier? If so should i swith to learning that one or stick with Hendrix?

SRV's is harder, but not that much.

If you ever become phenomenal and you can play anything, check out this version on youtube. My fav hands down.

learn the orginal first it will give you a real feel for the song then you can see how SRV put his own spin on it

they're about the same but I would go with SRV version because i feel its more bluesy

Did you watch the whole thing? Did you see when he takes that solo and his acoustic sounds so incredible?!?!?

yes, learn both. it's not going to kill you if you learn two different ways
To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.

Personally I prefer Clapton's version from Derek & The Dominos, but between those two SRV, albeit his is harder than Jimi's.

I just don't think it should be an instrumental so i prefer hendrix's versions but I wish that his were longer.

learn the proggression, the rhythm, the motif - learn how and what SRV or Jimi did to the song


then you should be able to play you own version!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here lies a problem that most guitar players face in this day of internet tab and short attention spans — they don't know how to express themselves.

SRV's version is fantastic, if you cut out 3/4 of it. He does far too much random guitar wanking.

So, I'd suggest the Hendrix version first. Then once you've got the original down, work on your own version.

Check out the Skid Row version too. Most of it isn't so great, but the intro is a good example of someone listening to the original and putting their own spin on it without destroying what makes it so great.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I learnt SRV's version up until after the end of the first solo. Good place to end it there, rather than try and bring the energy back up again. But I really suggest SRV's version.

SRV's version is harder indeed, but I prefer Hendrix's original by far (being a fan of both).

No that was not me. I just thought it was pretty bad and was making a joke.
