When I first started playing the guitar I was obsessed with Jimi Hendrix (okay I still am). I spent hours learning as many solos as I could and listened to the blues album over and over again. At the end of the day though, this has always been my favourite Hendrix song. It's beautifully understated, short and sweet!

Since I bought some new equipment (a Fender Telecaster and a Firepod Recording interface) I decided to take them for a test toast by recording a simple cover of this song.

Hey, wait, what happened to Mitch Mitchell's killer drum fill just after the guitar intro? What did you do with Mitch Mitchell? Wait, what's that mumbling and thrashing... from your closet... Good god, you've got Mitch Mitchell locked in your closet! FREE MITCH MITCHELL! FREE MITCH MITCHELL!

Consarnit! Can't a guy lock a legendary drummer in his closet without someone raising a ruckus...

What a great way to fire up you're new rig. I just saw this Hendrix vid for the first time today, you'll probably dig it.

This is delightfully twanketty. I made up that word just now to try to describe that lovely guitar.
