Lately, I've been digging up a lot of film of Jimi Hendrix. Since I began playing guitar, this is something I do routinely. I like to study his fingers and handling of the guitar (and see if there is anything I can pinch :-). After all these decades and mounds of AMAZING guitar players who have emerged, I still can't find anyone as innovative and natural as Jimi. He is just an 'once in a lifetime' individual who transcends artistic and musical spirituality. Accept it. I did a long, long time ago. Anyway. Mr. Hendrix is someone who continues to inspire, influence and grace the guitar. This is one of my all-time favorite segments of Jimi. Although he is universally known for his electric guitar style, this is just him on an acoustic 12-string performing a phenomenal version of 'Hear My Train A' Comin'. I've always said that the only way to truly tell the talent of a guitar player is to hear him/her play on an acoustic.
Enjoy & happy Friday ya'll!
