Jimi Hendrix was the greatest true musician in rock history. Of course, kids nowadays think it's more important to look good than to have any actual musical ability of ANY kind. Anyone who`s ever played guitar understands the genius of Hendrix. Kain1, learn some respect, kid.

Anyone who thinks he's "overrated" probably isn`t a real music fan and definitely not a musician, guitar player specifically. He pretty much changed the whole game and made his guitar do things that people didn`t think were possible.
I agree that some of his sh*t is actually very easy to play, but that`s not the point. I got to talk to one of my favorite guitarists, Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers/Gov`t Mule) at a meet & greet last year and asked him if he would let me in on some secrets/tricks of his and he told me, "It`s not about what notes you play or how you play them, it`s about why you play them."
