50 years of commemoration Jimi Hendrix

18 september 2020 : today it is 50 years since the passing of Jimi Hendrix.

He changed electric guitar playing forever and inspired so many others :
Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Steve Lukather, Michael Landau, The Edge, John Frusciante, John Mayer, Edward Van Halen just to name a few.

Back in 1993 around the same time, I was returning from California and reading an interesting article of Guitar World : what if Jimi Hendrix still would be alive. Many speculations, even like Jimi Hendrix meets Miles Davis ! Very interesting indeed.



Me, Edwin, got inspired by Jimi Hendrix after meeting with my guitar heroes talking about their influences : seriously. And I am still on a journey today ...

I can talk and teach for hours !



Some of my favourite songs beyond the classics :
Hear my train a comin'- Live at the Fillmore East
If 6 was 9 - Axis : Bold as love
Freedom - Atlanta pop festival
Castle made of sands - Axis : Bold as love
Purple haze - Are you experienced


Favourite album : West Coast Seattle Boy - The Jimi Hendrix Anthology
