    I hope that this cover will surprise people on the forum if you know me at all.

    though I'm not a real guitarist and more of the 'singer-songwriter' type, hendrix's soul and sincerity and songwriting are sometimes overlooked and he's just seen as a guitarist. he was a lot more than that and wind cries mary is a classic. he's a big influence on me and I hope that my poor guitar playing and inability to really cover him is instead seen as a humble tribute and suggestion to start listening to more hendrix.

    also, if you're interested, I can tell you what this song means. at least what I think it means. take it easy guys


    other songs to listen to:

    bold as love
    little wing
    castles made of sand
    hey joe

    The more I listen to you, the more I really appreciate your work. Your voice has this really nice tone to it. Very nice smooth sorta sound. Great choice for the song too. I love Jimi, but where I really admire him other than his guitar work is for the exact songs you have listed. Great music choice buddy.

    Have you checked out John Mayer? He's the best singer-songwriter out there right now. At least in males, coz I think Alicia Keys is pretty good too. Damn, cover some John Mayer, should be easy for you, after Jimi.

    keep the faith
