To be honest, sometimes a big bowl of Haagen-Dazs is just as fine . . . but not always.  ; )

 
I'll jump in here for CoJo, knowing he'd probably think something similar should be said about "a big bowl" of something.

Now that would be cool; a new indica hybrid combining Haagen + Dazs.  I'd blaze that bowl!!

Sawyer is an amazing talent
...and what competition might Mr. Hendrix have won when he was 18 years old?

Don't know why, but it holds a special place in the amazing greatness that was Jimi Hendrix for me. Beautiful and too short.

Was there anyone at any point who could have said, "You know Jimi, you've written a lot of great solos but something tells me this is one of the best. Maybe we should let it ride for a few more bars?"
 
I think the early cut-off is an essential part of experiencing the greatness of this song. Often it is better to get only a glimpse of perfection, than to be given all of it and allowing oneself to be overexposed to it.

Love this track. I've heard it performed at 4 different concerts, including Randy "sounds like Jimi" Hansen, Slow hand (with Robert Cray) , Paul "the Voice" Rogers and Steve "guitar" Miller.
10s across the board!  

The original album version also gets a 10, if not just because of how beautiful the song is, because of how much of a 'staple' in rock/blues guitar it would become. 

Long Live RP!

There were other epic Hendrix fade outs which left us wanting. The ultimate was on Bold as Love. Just blazing, then gone away...

I wish I could hear this song for the first time, without any knowledge of Hendrix just to see how I would respond to it.  I can't imagine not still loving it, but then I also can't imagine my music perspective without Jimi Hendrix in it.

I got to see The Doors but the wife got to see Jimi's last NA concert in LA.  I think she won that one.  {#Cheesygrin}
