I'm up for Hendrixes cover of "Wild Thing."

(If it's ok of course...Hendrix didn't write it, but Hendrix didn't write Hey Joe either.)

i'll try and do it again with less fuzz, but the reason it starts out with voo doo child is because, if you watch the video on my myspace, it has the intro to voo doo child, then it goes into the star spangled banner, i just wanted to do it that way i guess.

I just recorded my version of Voodoo Chile. Theres no editing in it what so ever. I recorded using the 4uzz pedal I designed and built, the Marshall BluesBreaker I built, my PRS, and my Hartke GT60c.

ok sorry that i havent been on for a bit guys ive been studying hard for my exams and i didnt get a chance to come on and as stated in the first post: enteries must be in before the end of september
I play guitar =]
#28
I think we should make the recording dedline the 1st of september. I think the end of september is way to long and excessive.

Also, threadstarter, put the links to the songs next the the contestants on the first page.
#29
Sorry guys I'm gonna have to drop out, I still keep making mistakes on the Purple Haze solo, so I'm gonna pull out, sorry.
#31
I'll do all along the watchtower too, if that's okay. Does the quality of the recording matter or just the playing?
#32
Anyone here play with their thumb? Like Hendrix?
Contrary to what most people think even you can play with your thumb, just get a really small neck :P

Yeah im looking forward to this competition.
Thats my two cents

Can you put me down for "Fire"? If i dont get a backing track ill be forced to wither play acousticly or not do it...

Sick, I'm officially judging now. I'm a pretty lenient guy, fear not. As if it really matters who wins anyways, but you know.
