Hey Jimi


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
We stole from some of Hendrix "Hey Joe" & "The Wind Cry's Mary" without actually covering the song, then evolved it with a rock attitude and the attitude of the time which was 1970. The intention of the piece is to get that tone that he used in these pieces at the front end of the song before going in another direction...

My Buds Russ-JK Simmons and John provide Guitar,Bass and Drums Shadow E.Piano...

NOTE: I saw Hendrix perform in Seattle on July 26, 1970. I was blown away by the performance, showmanship, and how many amp heads he blew... It was indeed a Purple Haze moment...

Hey Jimi
The librarian at my school saw Hendrix in Miami. I tell her that makes her the coolest person I know. That makes you the coolest person I virtually know!

Killer track Dave. You achieved what you were going for and then some!

Jangle
Love that dangle, what a great tone on that guitar, this is so good on so many levels, definitely caught that Hendrix vibe, Man almost like time traveling! 1970 was a great year I was only 4 but I liked rock and roll, Btw that heavy part a little past the middle was supreme! You guys rock!

Ah, my fault
...was thinking about the overall vibe on the piece, it's so like the original (Hendrix) it could be a "lost" outtake. There is enough here borrowed from later sources to dispel that notion, but still I hear Hendrix. Not a bad thing at all, I was giving a compliment, IMHO what you accomplished is worthy of doing and a rare piece of musicianship. Well done!
