'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'



to paraphrase a normal guy.
i really dont think so

If you think Hendrix was so much better and nobody else could even play anywhere near his level then you haven't listened to enough guitarists.
Hendrix was great, his songs were great and his playing was amazing, but there are other equally good players and also better players.

sorry i didnt understand. anyway, yeah, i guess im laughing at you. well just your comment.
ive played for about 10 years but had to stop a little over a year ago. had an accident. lost a finger.

does it matter? do i have to be a virtuoso to have an opinion?

also, for the record..... longer time on the instrument really dont mean anything either.

if you played for 30 years and only played 20 minutes a day(i know thats not the case) and i played for 10 years and i practiced 18 hours a day(not the case either) does that mean youre 'better' cause you have more 'years'?
i dont really understand


there are lots of guitarists out there that have made a career on power chords and sloppy crap playing.... been doing it for 30 years. dont mean their opinion is more valid than someone else.

what are you getting at?

you have a bias.... admit it... its fine. its youre opinion so for you, its correct.

i just dont see how someone who has "played for 30 years" can honestly say that ALL guitarists would sound like an amateur next to hendrix in a room with only a guitar and amp.
maybe that really is how you feel.... if so, ok

there are lots of great and unique players out there, but as you say, hendrix tops every poll and chart of best guitar players 44 years after he died,

i can give you quote after quote from world famous guitarists saying they think that hendrix is the best - and yet you 'laugh' at me for expressing this opinion?

you're definitely in the minority on this one

thats all from me

take a poll.. see if i am the minority.
hendrix tops every poll.... so what... just cause rolling stone says he is the best after all these years dont make it true.

you know in interviews people kind of say what they want to hear...
ask so and so about hendrix and its gonna be "oh sure, he is the best... blah blah"...

then there are the honest people....frank zappa that really only made positive comments towards steely dan and alan holdsworth....then you have paul gilbert who thinks shawn lane was the 'scariest guitar player alive'....

people are not always honest in their opinions of others in their interviews.... its called being polite and trying to keep sales up.
not everyone cares about that.

also, hendrix thought billy gibbons was the 'best' he had ever heard.

so, hendrix himself thinks he would not be as 'good' as gibbons in a room with just a guitar and amp....

just saying....

so either hendrix really thought gibbons was the 'best', meaning better than him... or, he was a fan of his style, loved his playing and was being polite.... which do you think?

edit* he said gibbons was his favorite.... sorry

www.celebrityrockstarguitars.com...



n case you can't recognize Billy He is standing next to Jimi
In a Television Interview On Dick Cavett in 1968 Jimi Hendrix Named Billy Gibbons as his favorite Guitar Player.

edit again*

not trying to start crap man.... no arguments here.... i just like to talk music and guitars

i've got a set of pearly gates on my favourite les paul in honour of billy gibbons - he's a lovely player - but nowhere near jimi's league

and to be clear, you think that everyone who disagrees with you is really lying, and that only people who agree with you are giving their true opinions?

the reaction of a couple of other 'top tenners' to first hearing jimi play:

clappers

beck

I'd give you a hundred stars if I could! Exactly everything that I think. Especially the brilliant example list you made:

") 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 is exactly how they do in mag's and music shows. I've LOL at some of their "greatest guitarists lists".

I listened to Zappa back in the day. He done what he wanted and done it before most of the "big famous guitar players".

Gary Moore(R.I.P.). What a player, even though I think he was heavily influenced by that Texas SRV sound. I will never forget this fiery performance by him: www.youtube.com...

There were some smoking guitarists coming out of Appalachia and Nashville back in the 50's and 60's. I've heard many times that many a famous guitarist had their ego's shattered when coming through there. But none of these guys are famous at all, other than locals know them. I was told this by a few people who were there and have no reason to lie.

No. Race had nothing to do with most opinions on Hendrix being over rated. Hendrix was just doing what he heard a bunch of other guitarists doing at the time and before that time. Hendrix got to jump on the stage at Woodstock and they didn't. But it doesn't change the fact of other guitarists out there. But like Isaid, I dig some of Hendrix' stuff. But he was no innovator or trail blazer.

This kid's pretty good.

The next Hendrix? No.

There will never be another Hendrix until Hendrix comes back from the dead soon.

'cardiffgiant' suggested otherwise in his first response to me: '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 was disagreeing with him - imo it was because he was the best

and stevie ray vaughan and gary moore - no hendrix influence there?

i never said people that disagree with me are lying. i said people give interviews and dont always give their honest opinion... do you disagree with that?

if someone interviewed clapton, hendrix, beck, whoever and the interviewer said "what do you think of so and so?"
im thinking the answer would dance around their true opinion(in most cases)

something like.... oh yeah, so and so... ive heard of him... he has some serious chops...good player..

how many times have you heard the person being interviewed say "oh so and so... yeah, they suck ass... cant stand them"

how many times have you heard something like that?^^^^^^^^ me... not too many times

you really dont hear it unless youre talking about east vs west gangsta rap....

well it seems hendrix thought more if gibbons than you do....i know you have 30 years playing but hendrix had 31 years when he sad that so he must be correct... ha

top ten according to who? you? rolling stone the guitar player authority?

clapton is not in my top ten. neither is beck... now what?

and i was the one that said i dont think he would have been as popular has he not been a black left handed player in the late 60's....thats what i believe

now we are talking about influence?

yeah, hendrix had some influence on them... so what

hendrix is more accomplished on the guitar cause he influenced them? i unno about that

so that means hendrix nees to be behind elvis, chuck berry, little richard, albert king, and bb king...

i mean, they influenced him so that must be the case right....

i dont understand your logic at all man....
