i think it was probably the version by derek and the dominoes becuase its the only other one i can think of. And the great uncreative said it so its more than likely right.

The Derek and the Dominoes version sucked, so I doubt it was their'. Either Hendrix or SRV.

Stevie's version was voted number one for the "100 Greatest Guitar Solo's of All Time". And he didnt sing on it, so if the version you have has someone singing, its probably not Vaughan's version.

Perhaps it was the version recorded at G3? With Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Yngwie Malmsteen.

Thats what I was thinking but Now I think it was derek and the dominoes.

I saw 'sweep' and though 'THE STEEN!!!!'

Either way, the G3 version is awesome - I haven't heard it played with such class since Hendrix recorded it. Vai at the intro is beatiful.
#16
Yeah but I didn't like Yngwies part. The song is so emotional and I sreiously don't think that he has any feelings in him.

I'm pretty sure I have two SRV versions, the aforementioned where he doesn't sing and a longer one where he does. The two are very similar and the singing sounds exactly like SRV.

^ I know I know... he was horrendous, it was painful to watch with him just standing there busting out 3000nps after Vai had just beautifully articulated some obscure intro to the song.

Didn't Malmteen start off Voodoo Child or Purple Haze or something like that? I remember it being good whatever it was. Some of the looks on Satrianis face were priceless though, if you look carefully you can see him go when The Steen kicks in.
#19
He's probobaly got some strange emotional issues brought on by his immense weight.
Didn't he get into a pretty nasty car accident in like 1990 too, and get brain damage?

You're joking right?

It's like comparing sex to sticking your penis in a blender.

update:

i have another version of this that says its done by SRV, Vai, Page, and Robert PLant [?]
#24
If you got it on limewire (or any other of those sort of thing), I do not think you should trust what it says. They usually stick that sort of stuff in for who knows what reason. I do not remember a concert where those four were together.

Have you tried getting the Derek and the Dominos version? If you can get it, listen to it and tell us.

i have a version that says SRV, Page, Vai, and Neil Shaun (theres some more names on it to but id on't remember who) . thats probably the one you heard.

if you listen closely you can tell whos playing what. theres at least 5 different guitarists on it.

then someone with a deep voice sings the actual song. have no idea who it is. he sounds like a metal singer.

ill say hendrix's was amazing.

the crazy thing is, i honestly think that little wing is hard to actually ruin.
#34
Probably not the one you're looking for, but worth a listen is Vai's version from the LIve at the Astoria show. If you don't fancy finding the DVD, a cd was released with a few tracks from the show and I think his Little Wing cover made it onto the cd.

In a coma for a week and severe nerve damage to his hand. Something no guitarist wants to go through.

I love Vai's voice from the G3 show, when Satch, Malmsteen, and Vai covered it.

I just cant stand Malmsteen though, but I do dig my Satch and Vai.

come to think of it, Derek and the Dominoes sucked with it.

Malmsteen sucked at Voodoo Child[e]
