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

You are an idiot, when you were writing this I hope you equiped your flame shield... first off Malmseen is ****E compared to jimi Hendrix. Jimi played with so much emotion that you can't see it and you'de rather go watch some asshole playing so fast that his fingers set alight and by the end of his songs you don't have any insight into his soul or his feelings...you suck


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....
#85
did u know .. i think it was for all along the watchtower that noel redding didnt want to play for somereason , so jimi did bass to that song
#86
I think it was because Jimi was being an uptight bastard, or something in that vein.

I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all

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.
Buckethead and John Petrucci got into a shred batte. Petrucci went into world domination mode and melted Buckethead's face off. That's why Buckethead wears a mask.

They had some kind of arguement in the studio. By the time, Redding wasn't happy cos Hendrix had all the fame.
#89
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...
#90
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.
#91
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.
#93
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.
#95
He also played a pretty big part in starting up the hard rock thang, which in turn became heavy metal...
#96
^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.
#97
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.
#101
If someone says something like "Hendrix wasn't so great, I know guitarists who can play faster than him" again, then I'm gonna kill something, because guitar playing isn't about speed, it's about skill. You get all these metal and hard rock guitarists (Nothing wrong with them, btw) that play all these super-fast solos, but they might not even have half the skill or technique that Hendrix had. Most of them just use pentatonic scales and pentatonic minor scales and crap like that. Plus, they no doubt planned out their solos before they perform them, whereas Hendrix could make it up as he went along. So, basically, kiddies, SHUT THE **** UP ABOUT FAST GUITARISTS, CUS NO-ONE CARES!

nothing like it.

I guess it's the same type of thing, but chordally and musically it's no where near.

From the things I read, Noel Redding had put all of his intrest into a new band he had put together. He sometimes forgot about going to the studio to record tracks for Electric Ladyland, so Hendrix played bass for several tracks. Eventually Redding lost almost all of his intrest in playing with the Experiance
#104
So I was at a music store yesterday looking to buy some live stuff of his. First album I found was Band of Gypsies, and after a bit more digging, I found Live at the Fillmore East. Are these two separate albums of the same performances? If so, which one should I get? (Live at the Fillmore was a double-disc, Band of Gypsies was a single. The track listings weren't quite the same.)

I got a collection called "Like a rolling stone." Had his live performances in The Monterey Pop Festival and a gig in Stockholm. Along with those listed above, I would really recommend it.

I would look for the Box of Gypsys bootleg set, which has all four shows on 1969-12-31 and 1970-01-01 that Fillmore East/Band of Gypsys was taken from, but that's just me

That album doesn't feature Mitch Mitchell or Noel Redding does it?

Noel Redding was a dick. He and Jimi constantly debated over the bass on Electric Ladyland. Hell, he didn't even play the bass solo on 1983, Jimi did.

I also hate his singing. Little Miss Strange and She's So Fine shouldn't even be on the records they're on, he doesn't need a vocal track God damnit.
