    Default I am no Hendrix....

    But I think I came up with something that sounds pretty cool* Details at end of clip.



    The Camera mic unfortunately kills some bite/high end that is present in the room.












    * keep in mind, I am not a Hendrix disciple, I only know some bits and pieces , which is a travesty I plan on making up for in the next few months.

    Thats one of my fave covers of his. Hendrixhad such a genuine and raw approach to the blues that none of his british peers did.

    Thanks everyone for the listens and comments. I have been playing with that model for a week. I never could dial it in very well with buckers or my tele,but it works perfect with the strat. Pull off the echo and back the gain down, and it does a convincing SRV too.

    I thought I posted this last night, but apparently not. I kept expecting Ginger Baker to kick in.

    Nice, Jeff.

    Seems you and I are thinking along the same lines. I was just pulling out some old Guitar World mags with some Hendrix songs in them last night and fiddling around. I think studying Jimi is my next little project. Lick Library has a Jam with Jimi Hendrix 2 DVD + CD set teaching 7 songs that I think I'm considering or Smash Hits guitar play Along CD/Book.

    Dude, that sounds great. Is this what kept you from amp shopping? :d

    What model is that? I can't hear a thing that you said the end.

    Nah, just the stores are a good hour away from me, and my back has been acting up after some heavy lifting. 2 hours of driving would have been a nightmare.


    Its a Fender Super Reverb with tape delay....no pedals. Guitar straight in.
