    Little Wing (Intro) cover!

    So, I setup my new to me Partscaster, changed from 9's to 11's, tweaked everything, and now for the sound test.

    Forgive me for the sloppyness. I have to pick up the guitar more than once a month. work is getting crazier nowadays. This is the first time in a long time that I spent time with a guitar, not to mention practicing on it and playing some songs on it.

    Cool--that's my favorite Hendrix tune, although my favorite version of it is SRV's--but Jimi does a great job as well.

    Not bad--with a bit of practice it will sound real good.
    I have trouble playing that one with some of the changes...

    Nicely done, Blues. Sounds like you are more into the SRV version than Hendrix's.
    If you really want to dig into the tune, spend some time with Eric Gales' versions.
    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    Thank you zontar! Ive learned it a long time ago but its my first tine recording it. In my head the timing is more like what I played, but it's far from the original. Haha

    It's okay to do it your own way...

    Aah, what do I know? On first listen, it made me think of Stevie, on second listen, more of Jimi.
    I guess that means you are doing something right


    This is my favourite Eric Gales version, with friends. Three fine guitar players, treating the song and each other with respect:


    I love the diminished chords Eric uses.

    The song has lots of potential to be done a number of ways...
