According to wikipedia this is not originally by Hendrix but a band called The Leaves. But Hendrix makes this song sound amazing. The lyrics, the song are so secondary to me. I could listen to this song with the singing totally removed. The guitar is, unsurprisingly, amazing.
I told my husband once that I wanted to learn to play guitar like Jimi Hendrix and he said “everyone does.” Probably true. I mean for the love of all that is good, if you watch the video I am posting with this, you will see him play the guitar with his MOUTH at one point. And it still sounds amazing.
I love this song in particular because you can really hear the blues influence in my opinion. There are times when the guitar almost mimics a blues harmonica sound. And it would totally be an appropriate topic of a blues song too.
Aside from just listening to the amazing guitar action. The drums support the song well really bringing it into the classic rock arena.
