You might like Eddie Hazel, he was the guitarist for Funkadelic.

Also just like the above poster said, check out Robert Randolph and the Family Band, he's a pedal steel guitarist but he's still great.

Are there any songs in particular by Robert Randolph or anyone that are really good and are in the style I'm looking for?

I'm looking for songs in the style of little wing, lenny, bold as love, electric ladyland, etc. I youtube'd this one solo video by Robert Randolph and it was exactly what I was looking for but the stuff by the band was more blues to me. I'm a nooby at this though

Thanks for the replies so far

Alright, Lenny and the SRV version of Little Wing are blues inflected instrumentals, so from that I would say check out the song Maggot Brain by Funkadelic.

Eric Gales, he is a fairly unknown artist but is still really good, check out some of his little wing covers on youtube

Robin Trower is fantastic, and has a similar style to Hendrix.
Feel free to call me Kyle.

You should listen to John Frusciante from the Red hot Chili Peppers. His live improvisations are quite often quite Hendrixy. He's an excellent guitarist.

I also recommend Robert Randolph.

Amazing song. I've never heard someone make a guitar sing so well and convey emotion like he did.

also try out "Scuttle Buttin" by SRV. my favorite song to play of his that is an instrumental. its his version of "Chickin Pickin" that Lonnie Mack wrote. Lonnie Mack is very good as well.

Pick up "Bridge of Sighs." His best work is on that album, "Day of the Eagle," "Bridge of Sighs," "Too Rolling Stoned," "A Little Bit of Sympathy." Hell, the whole album is great.

Um, The Fool and Me? Don't forget that one.

I've apparently got some special edition of Bridge of Sighs that has some bonus tracks, one of which is "Alethea." It's probably my favorite song on the CD.

Black Keys can be veeeeery hendrixy at times. Some Cream stuff is similar, some Who stuff is similar, those are like one song a piece though, so you'd be better off going with The Black Keys.

I saw him play with Clapton when they came to town..Boy, do they make an amazing duo!


PS: Want Hendrix-y music? Listen to Electric Mud, by Muddy Waters. I don't know why it was critically panned, it's a great album!
#23
Robin Trower for sure. Vernon Reid from Living Color is also a pretty excellent guitarist.
#24
people are gonna hate me for sayin this but some of the Red Hot Chili Peppers stuff has that hendrixy style....just the way john frushiante plays

Frusciante knows how to rip Hendrix off, that's why he's similar, and that's why he's liked.

Try looking up some of Hendrix's influences if u want to know more about who sounds like him or actually who he sounds like if u want to put it that way. *****HINT---Buddy Guy----HINT**** Buddy Guy is probably on of his biggest influences and it is said that he was actually the grand father of phsycadelic blues rock wich Hendrix made famous. I also once read that Hendrix couldn't hear enough of early Billy Gibbons stuff back when ZZ Top was playing dirt floor bars in Texas... but i dunno just make your mind a sponge and suck it all up hehe

Yeah, Robert Randolph is definitely an artist worth checking out in this case. You should also look into Robin Trower's music as well.
