House Burning Down is probably my favorite Hendrix song as of now. IMO the Hendrix cover of watchtower is better then Bob Dylan's version, I love Dylan's version, but I think Hendrix actually improved on a perfect song

we all know all along the watch tower was a cover, and most of us who are older than 12 will know that even dylan said hendrix's version was better... didn't write it though did he!

Hendrix was awesome, no doubt about that... however i still stick by the arguement me and Rage had a good 5 months ago, that Hendrix is an over rated guitarist!


amazing yes, the best ever, no.

exactly what is "over rated", but as for me i love Jimi Hendrix, one of the greatest musicians ever. But i agree dont think he's the best.

Hey Vivica, who do think is the greatest Guitarist ever?

its IMPOSSIBLE to say who's the best ever.

and by over rated i mean that i can guarentee you'll have 50 newbies on this forum who'll see this thread and think "oh, i can say i like fire, or purple haze, hendrix is cool right?"

yea, sure the songs are good, laughing sams dice is nothing short of brilliant, its just be gets too many people saying he's amazing, when he's not really as good as people make out.

However, YES he was one of the first people to do ALOT of what he did, so i will give him mad props for that!

You need to understand that that when people talk about Hendrix, they arent always talking about his music, they are talking about him personally which is what I hear about him mostly. You cant put the "overrated" label on someone who did something with more style and passion than most anyone else and created a sound no one could imitate. I'd like to hear you opinion on the "Greatest" guitarist is. The G3 guys? Any guitarist could write a better album than Joe Satriani, and actually stay on beat with all the songs. Yngwie Malmsteen? I'd say he is one of the greatest guitarists today, but he doesn't have the beauty and passion which makes a good guitarist. One thing that made Hendrix as well known as he is was his reason. He wasnt a sketchy guitarist, he was consistant, he was fast progressing, he was fast, he wrote classics, he was a poet in every form as a person and guitarist. He wasnt just good, like alot of today's guitarists. The only person to come close was Stevie Ray Vaughan, and he came pretty damn close. But I heard his version of Little Wing, and realized no one could possible play like he did.

Listen to the solo guitar versions of Bold As Love, and Little Wing. And listen to the the solo versions of the G3 guys(if they have one that doesnt have a distorted backing guitar playing that floods out all the mistakes they make), and come back with the names of the songs you feel out play his. Not just the G3 guys, anyone. And don't mention Santana, that is an overrated guitarist, sure the guy has lots of passion, but not the skill. And if you are sticking with the G3 guys, I'd ask you to find out who they consider the best guitarist ever, and when they say Hendrix, maybe you should sit down, open your mind and consider the fact that someone who knows alot about guitars and techniques like the G3 guys must know a thing or two about what makes a good guitarist.. let alone the Best.

all he said was he didnt think you could safely say hedrix was the best... so are YOU saying hendrix WAS the best? even though what you said seemed like it was all based on your opinion of passion and what not instead of actual skill. you're too confident for an argument that shitty.

I never said he didnt have skill. Of course he does, and thats essential for guitarists, but also is passion. Hendrix is, in my opinion, one of the most skilled guitarists out there. Thats also apart of my arguement. I've spent time studying techniques, and people's style of playing and what not. Its an educated opinion, comming from someone who has openly listened to alot of well known and not so well known guitarists. Of course everyone has their own opinion, and I don't mind at all, but at the same time I still feel safe to say that Hendrix is by far the best due to my knowlege and love for guitar. I am not putting any of the G3 or other guys down, I am only saying when it comes to who I think is the best, I have to go with Hendrix. There is more to his music than fast fretwork.

If that opinion, comming from the knowlege of a commited guitarist, is written off as a shitty arguement, than so be it.

i also think jimi hendrix is overrated. people are still saying hes the best. i dont necessarily think he was the best ever, maybe the best of his time, but you have to realize, musicians back then all wrote about the same thing, war, drugs, and politics. now, people have so much more to write about, and his music gets blown away by some newer, more cultured musicians. jimi was amazing, but then again, so are other people. i think, also, because of the massive jump in technology, sound quality has improved so greatly, and effects have become so popular that his music just doesnt compare. it is pretty amazing that he was playing the best music of his era while heavily drugged :P

Jimi's music was so good BECAUSE it wasnt filtered by all this digitalized shit. Technology doesnt make someone a better musician. Name one guitarist out there that out does Jimi, and who is in a band that doesn't talk about war and politics and drugs? And what the hell do you mean "musicians back then all wrote about the same thing, war, drugs, and politics"? Thats a very ignorant statement. Have you even heard Jimi's music? He only mentions war and politics in a few songs, the rest is all poetry or love. There are probably more bands now days that are singing about drugs and politics. Alot more, actually.. to be honest there is a whole fucking genre now days that is basically all about drugs or politics.

i think jimi is a great musiciana nd one of the best if not the best for his style of music. he was very innovative and broke a lot of oundarys for guitar playing. voodoo child, bold as love, castles made of sand, and purple haze are all good

Rage, i know everything you're saying, and i understand it all, we've already estabilished that we both know a fair deal about music, but we do disagree on this subject.

i'm well aware that technical ability isn't everything and i'm sure you appreciate that i don't beleive it is.

lets just agree to disagree, because i seriously cannot be fucked to go through this whole thing Again!

that guy was talking out his ass.

all i did was give my two cents. you cant tell me that if jimi hendrix played guitar with a new style amp with newer and better equipment, that it wouldnt sound at least a little better. jimi hendrix, among many other musicians, lived in a time of war, politics and discrimination, people wrote about it then, and people still write about it now. the same subjects still come up because its still the same world in a sense. people will always be hateful, political, and stupid, among other things. musicians now write about all of the same things they used to because theyre still factors in life, i said that already, but they now write about different things that werent even issues then. its a changing world, there are less taboos on touchy topics nowadays because people are much more informed, hence the "more cultured" statement. dont try to tell me that what i said was ignorant, it may have been, but im sure if really felt the need to use that tone, then you obviously felt that something was ignorant about your views as well.

oh, dont try to put me in my place when you have no idea who i am, or what my level of intelligence is. "Jimi's music was good BECAUSE it wasnt filtered by all this digitalizde shit." did i ever even imply that musicians are better because of technology? no, read what i said, i said SOUND QUALITY has improved. there are more things he could do now with his equipment that would make it sound 100x better than what it did, different values of sounds would show, and different effects would be heard. who knows, maybe if he had just a tad more gain when he was playing, one little extra harmonic stum would have been heard and it would have conveyed the mood of the song better. you cant say it would or wouldnt happen, its a THEORY.

headrush, yes i talk down to some people, usually people who make retarded comments...

but if somebody is making sense then i'll respect what they're saying, and atleast argue against it, as many people on this forum have come to know.

as for what goes on in the art forum, i'm sorry that you lack the mental capacity to understand what i'm saying.
all of your arguements are based around twisted versions of what i have said, simple as that.



back on topic, i think most will agree, Hendrix was good, there have been better.

I dont think he does at all. If you ask someone off the street who Steve Vai is they want know 70 percent of the time. Around here anyway, you exports are just messed up.
