While Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding are not a most known cause people are usually too focused on Jimi Hendrix they did have a part in why he is so famous as a musician. But anyways anyone a fan of this band? If yes what are some of your fav. songs of them? And do you consider Jimi Hendrix as one of the best guitarist ever?


I am a fan of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and the whole name is interesting I feel they arent any bands that have a name like that anymore. Some of my fav. songs of them are castle made of sand, star spangled banner, purple haze and more. And yes I feel Jimi Hendrix is one of the best guitarist ever he in a way revolutionized music and guitar playing.

Crosstown Traffic and All Along the Watchtower are probably my favourite Hendrix tracks too, and I've got a copy of Electric Ladyland on vinyl somewhere.

The great man has made a respectable number of posthumous comics appearances, popping up in an issue or two of Timespirits by Tom Yeates and Archer & Armstrong by Barry Windsor-Smith, in addition to biographical efforts such as Bill Sienkiewicz's Voodoo Child graphic novel and former NME writer Charles Shaar Murray's strip Purple Days (serialised in Revolver). Don McGregor and Paul Gulacy's Sabre was probably based on Hendrix's likeness, with some Clint Eastwood thrown in for good measure.

Jimi Hendrix is undoubtedly the greatest guitarist of all time. Way ahead of his time. I could go on and on about my personal favorites. Purple Haze, Wind Cries Mary, All Along The Watchtower, Spanish Castle Magic, Castles Made Of Sand.....the list goes on. Amazing Artist. They don't make em like that anymore. Much love and respect to Hendrix.

I'm no aficionado or die-hard fan, but I do also really enjoy All Along the Watchtower and Spanish Castle Magic. The latter is especially fun to play on Frets on Fire :D

Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Hey Joe, Little Wing, and Wait Til Tomorrow are some of my favorites.

Hendrix did more than any other ELECTRIC guitarist to push forward the instrument and what it can do. In that sense he's absolutely the best. He was so far ahead of his time that most people refused to play with him because they couldn't keep up. There are acoustic guitarists that might be more skilled but that's a different realm.
