Yes, but, Hendrix was SHITE.

[Joking. A bit. Well, not really, but I can't be bothered to argue about why I don't like Hendrix again]

I play a crap Fender knock-off. Uh... I'll accept that people don't necessarily need/ want .14s, but I do think that heading towards the thinner range is covering up bad technique a lot of the time. IMO and all that.

I know, I know. I just can't stand him. It's just a thing I have. None of it makes sense to me - I mean, it makes sense that I don't like him - it's just everyone else liking him that doesn't make sense to me. I'm sure he was a nice enough chap though. Although he did leave his dog behind, according to something I once saw.

is your strat a CIJ? I've found that CIJ fenders are normally solid instruments they just often need pickup swaps and electronic switches, which in terms of Jaguars and Jazzmasters makes me just want to go for an AVRI, what's your rig btw?

It's a japanese Fender paisley strat. pink.

I use a fender bassman reissue, the gold tweed ones.

I usually use those mid range yellow picks, pretty thick. I hate flimsy ones but I also hate really hard ones.

Then I use a digitech bad monkey overdrive (green pedal), Boss Fender 63 spring reverb pedal (brown), Ibanez AD9 analog delay (pink) and a Berringer VD400 (grey, cheap little plastic pedal for $30, best one in my rig).

If I ever break a string (rare) on my fender I have a gibson les paul, studio custom. Someone put EMGs in it, zack wylde ones, so distortion sounds kinda over the top, BUT, when its clean it sounds SO good and raw, especially thru the bassman.

Jimi hendrix's soloing doesnt do it for me, BUt, I love the chords he played on some songs, adding little riffs in between. Some weird unique stuff, and the noise on Machine Gun was pretty rad for it's time.

I like the guitarist for the Monks as well, who was using feedback and wah before hendrix and actually inspired hendrix. They were so fucking raw.


That said, I like George Harrison better than Hendrix. Seriously, his guitar riffs in early beatles songs made up for their lyrics. Latter half of beatles career he got kinda wanky, but in the early days when he'd hold back and just put as much as he could into a short solo or riff, it was awesome.

His solos were pretty classical in nature, and in the medium of rock back then, ahead of its time too.

The harmonic thing he and paul do together on "Your bird can sing" is brilliant.

But really, surf rock solos are my favorite ever.

This song by The Jokers has some rad shit in it for the early 60s...

remeniscent of thurston shit, behind the bridge playing etc.

^^Yeah for sure, I'm not even sure I know what modal's are either...

do you have any video link examples? I bet I do it in my stuff sometimes because I def am inspired by his style.

Welcome to the board dude

For acoustic in particular Iíd recommend trying to build up to a medium set (.013-.056) - they sound SO much better than light gauge strings! Once you are used to them itís not much harder on your fingers. I say the same for electric although w amps and pedals there are many more variables and maybe itís s bit less critical. I like my strings on most all gtrs to be quite heavy.

Anyone who says they canít hear the difference is either not listening or simple unconcerned w such things, which is fine too.

Regards, seasons greetings etc
