Boys and girls... check this sh# out. This is a 22 year-old guy from Melbourne, Australia, and he's the best guitarist I've heard since I first discovered Hendrix and Frusciante. Just outrageous. I'll let the music speak for itself, but trust me - his debut album which just released on Friday is worth every penny. I just had to share this stuff with you guys, because I doubt many people have even heard of him yet - but they ought to!









Peace

I like how he sings with the guitar instead of just playing a continuous loop of the same pattern while doing vocals or doing guitar after vocals like a lot of people do.

Not bad but not a patch on Hendrix. It's just basic blues licks, nothing special.

i'd second that - he's ok but pretty derivative

hendrix took the guitar a hundred years into the future - there's nothing here you couldn't have heard played better 40+ years ago

don't get me wrong he's a nice player but he lacks the originality or subtlety of a great player imo

for me joe bonamassa and derek trucks are the class players in this field at the moment

thanks for sharing though

he sounds real good. i think its great that he is playing all the instruments. dude has some chops.
i didnt like the second vid but the first one was nice.

if i had to guess i would have thought the first vid was dan aeurbach from the black keys. sounds a lot like him.

i always thought hendrix was over rated. just an opinion. i have always felt that he was as huge as he was cause of the times, he was black, and he was a lefty.
i dont think he would have been as popular had it not been for all those things.
people always freak out but music is subjective and thats my opinion on him.
i really dont like the 'best guitarists' lists that the mags put out but it also bothers me that hendrix is always defacto #1

i can think of a lot of players that in my opinion handle the guitar better than him. i can think of loads that handled it better than him back then.

but yeah, this kid sounds good and derek trucks is the man.

you should check out guthrie govan

guthrie's great on a technical level

it is very much a matter of personal opinion, and in mine hendrix is a long way ahead of anyone before or since (and i've been playing electric guitar pretty seriously for over thirty years)

He's good. Reminds me of Prince more than Hendrix.

You will know the next Jimi without a doubt because the next Jimi will be just as original as the first Jimi....

I'm not trying to be rude here, but this guy is no Hendrix or an innovator like Edward Van Halen. I've been a musician since I was little(I'm 43 now), and musicians like this are pretty much average-(dime a dozen). He's done nothing on that guitar that amazed me or his tone didn't catch my ear and blow me away.

Now, with this being said, his music isn't bad. I kind of like 'Lovers In Bloom'. It's just pop with a average blues player with obvious Lenny Kravitz and Clapton influence. Thanks for sharing!

Hendrix WAS over rated. There were many guitarists doing whammy bar stuff and over distorted sounds at the time. Hendrix wasn't an innovator like guitarists like Edward Van Halen or Yngwie Malmsteen. He just wasn't. But I dig some of Hendrix' songs. But he was a sloppy player at times.

i totally agree.
im a fan of all sorts of players. i dig the 'sloppy' players. jack white. dan aeurbach. i dig them a lot.
of course hendrix could play but im so tired of hearing of how he was so awesome and innovative and how nobody was doing the stuff he was doing.
uuuh, frank zappa anyone? any number of the mothers auxiliary. how about ry cooder?
know what i mean...
i always hear stuff like 'oh hendrix and the wah wah... he was the first. he was the best'.... nope.
frank zappa introduced hendrix to it. showed him how to modulate and use it as a notch filter.

its not that i am not a fan of the grittier, sloppy style but for me, i am real big on musicianship and music theory.
just cause you are deep with the theory doesnt mean youre a shredder. zappas theory was off the map and never shred.

honestly, it wasnt hendrix who ruined hendrix for me. it was his fans and the magazines. its not his fault but when all the articles put him at de fact #1... it bothers me. im not really a fan of the arbitrary 'best of' lists but i get a lot of mags coming to the house so i read them. could be rolling stone.. could be guitar player. any of them. you read it and it will be hendrix at #1,,,

its like a loaded list and they always look a bit like this. not this is not exact but you get the idea
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) JIMI henrix #9 kurt cobain
2) jimmy page #10 lenny krvits
3) eric clapton #11 whatever ramone played
4)van halen #12 billy joe
5) pete townsend
6) gary moore

that crap gets deeper down the list. i see people like frank zappa and derek trucks, and gary moore floating low on the list but players like dave grohl and john mayer are above them.

for me, the way i learned and what i listened to when i was younger has brought me to think that technique and a solid base of music theory.
its not that i dont listen to minimalist stuff or sloppy players. i like that stuff too. could listen all night.
when i hear people like frank zappa and guthrie govan and joe pass it changed my life.

for 1, i think hendrix would have been a hell of a lot better had he not jooined the 27 club. but as it is, hia body of work is not that big. i really dont like the whole playing on stage with mescaline tucked into your bandana.

if hendrix was more a student of the theory and the relationships to the notes then i think would have played better.
i dont hate hendrix but i cant devote my ears to someone that is all slopped out on mescaline and booze, playing sloppy, setting his gear on fire. its just not my bag.


about hendrix and the wah... from wiki

One of Hendrix's signature effects was the wah-wah pedal, which he first heard used with an electric guitar in Cream's "Tales of Brave Ulysses", released in May 1967.[311] In July of that year, while playing gigs at the Scene club in New York City, Hendrix met Frank Zappa, whose band, the Mothers of Invention were performing at the adjacent Garrick Theater. Hendrix was fascinated by Zappa's application of the pedal, and he experimented with one later that evening


the same time hendrix was coming out frank was already playing. getting the mothers up and he put out crazy stuff.
i dont know if people just never got turned on to frank but he was doing stuff nobody was doing.
im not just talking about how sick he could play. im talking the composing. the arrangements. the mixing. all the handwritten notes for all the players of the band and all their instruments.
he was experimenting with electronics in his guitar and mics when people were not doing that.
i know he intonated scott thunes bass at his audition.
he drilled holes and had pick ups and electronics put into ruth underwoods marimba...
just writing/arranging/playing amazing stuff.

thats pretty much my opinion on it.

just on freak out, zappas 1st record there was more than 31 instruments on it. he wrote all the music and all the lyrics. he also played his butt off. lots of theory but the way he applied it sounded like nothing before it.

17 instruments on hot rats from 1969.
strings/reeds/percussion... all of it....and again...playing like a maniac.


well thats my piece. hendrix could play but i am over the hendrix is god garbage

and about harts again.
i like him. he's a young dude. clearly has some chops. i like the fact that he laid down his keys and drums himself.

gotta think. just cause he is not the balls right now dont mean he wont be in 5 years.
these are the types of musicians to watch and follow. you know, still coming up. still finding out where they fit.

lots of musicians like this that never really go anywhere. then there are others that after a few more years theyre insane.
he could be one of those guys

imo those people who think hendrix is regarded by guitarists as the best 'because he was black' or left handed or used lots of effects or drugs or whatever don't get it

to paraphrase a line about another great musician:

'if you were to put all the best electric guitarists in the world in a room together, with just a guitar and amp, then ask them all to play, then ask jimi to play, all the rest would sound like amateurs'
