My friend you want melodies listen to the first Hendrix album 'Are You Experienced'-any of it. Or 'Axis Bold As Love' excellent. Nice you appreciate a true guitar genius, remembering you have to put it in the context of the time he was doing his stuff-60s, it was very far reaching, still is really. But try these albums and happy listening.

Not only was/is Hendrix the best guitarist/musician ever imo!!, he was one cool mother****er.

You gotta check out Voodoo Chile at Woodstock.

I love Hendrix. There's a song called "May this be love" that has a lovely melody to it.

I like Jimmy Hendrix, but I have to say that the most respect that I have for Jimmy is because without him Queen might have never existed.

Jimmy Hendrix is undoubteably Queen's biggest musical influence.

I just love the fact he played a right handed guitar upside down. Best ever.

It's arguable the fact of whether Jimmy Hendrix was the greatest guitarist ever or not.

What I think can't be denied is that Jimmy Hendrix has been indeed the most influential of all guitarists.

> I have live at the Isle Of Whight Aug 1970

Machine Gun from that gig is amazing, really immense and powerful.

Jimi Hendrix IS the best guitarist in the world.

I don't really like his music, and I don't think he was technically as great as some people say he was. But it goes without question that he was a decent musician and rather innovative as well. I'd just not buy any of his records.

Btw, what's with Jimmi Hendrix and his bass-players!? He always had decent drummers backing him up, but somehow (in my opinion) he always had this second rate bass players?

[Quite right ol'chap and don't forget 'Waterfall'. Influenced them all-not forgetting that Smile supported Hendrix at the Albert Hall-now theres a concert that would make stunning viewing (I'm talking of the Smile set)Hendrix is just superb viewing full stop.

Wooaahh technically every guitarist of repute Clapton,Blackmore, Page and yes Brian acknowledge just how technically brilliant he was-he was far ahead of his time (see my 1st post at top of page). Decent is a massive understatement. Not really sure where the 2nd rate bass player bit comes from-you'll always hear a solid bit of playing keeping the 'engine' going which allows the improvisation which made Jimi so brilliant.

Well Noel Redding was originally a guitarist, but still a great bass player (bless his soul) and Buddy Cox is a brilliant bass player. I just guess their overshadowed by the awesome abilities of JIMI Hendrix too often.

I tell you, I'd have him in my ultimate band with that Freddie Mercury...

I'm not arguing he was ahead of his time. I'm also not ignoring the impact he had on modern-day music. But I don't believe the stuff he did was all that difficult. As far as Clapton and Page go, I don't rate them as great guitarists either. Not saying they are crap, but I can name quite a few others who are better in my opinion.

As far as the bass-players go, I'm not an actual bass-player myself. But I've heard some recordings and some live stuff as well, and I couldn't detect anything special about it. Again, I'm not saying it was crap, but I've heard MUCH better bassparts even from players back then.

Beofre this results in a flame-war. I'm not trying to diss the musicians some hold close to their hearts. Just stating my opinion. Which is all it really is... MY opinion. And I'm just a 4th or even 5th rate guitarist myself. :)
