I know there are the typicals like Red House, Hear my Train a'comin, voodoo child and (Slight Return). But as for the Major scale as an influence; Im looking at trying to pick up on the techniques in Bold as Love, All along the Watchtower, Castles made of Sand, Wind cries mary, and up from the skies? Any other must learn songs that help with playing some major blues by Hendrix?( and yes i know all of them are good to learn from)Comments...?

you NEED to learn EVERY hendrix song... its manditory if you play one you must play them all.

his version of catfish blues is eye opening, although it is minor blues

1983 (A Merman I Should Turn to Be) is a little spacey, but the guitar riffs are some great bluesy stuff.

Definitely a prime example of Hendrix's "Earth and Space" philosophy.

There's a lot you can take from Hendrix. The blues are his basis. Come On Pt 1 (Freddie King song souped-up Hendrix style with bits reminding me of the sublime Johnny Winter), the 15 minute Voodoo Chile as mentioned is incredible and a personal favourite (particularly the intro/outro) is House Burning Down. In a nutshell listen to all of his albums and try to replicate your favourite bits, same goes for any artist, take parts of their work you like and use it....

win.

PS: 1983... (a mermaid...) is one of the most beautiful spacey tracks this side of Hawkwind.

you should probably pick up his Martin Scorcese blues album, and Jimi Hendrix, The Blues. But definately catfish blues, voodoo chile, come on part 1 (earl king i beileve it is), Born Under a Bad sign, band of gypsys is more funk and soul, great album though, belly button window, my friend, hey baby is bluesy/spacey, midnight lightning. all good bluesy songs!

Yes come on part 1 is credited to Earl King and not Freddie, sorry but it's always reminded me of Freddie King's version of Let The Good Time's Roll, even though it is Earl's song...

Genius, either way!

and Catfish blues is excellent I must agree, as are the Canned Heat, Skip James, Taste and Robert Petway versions!
