Like always my top three favorite guitar heroes that made me want to pick up the guitar and play are JImmy Page, Jimi Hendrix and Joe Satriani. Hendrix is definitely one of the reasons I play. He was the one that made me want to play lead guitar. I’ve been trying to play lead guitar for the past 20 years. I’m still not all that good at lead guitar playing but I’m getting there. When I first started playing guitar, I used to try to figure out how to play Hendrix songs and learn his licks and stuff.
His music has always been important to me. While his studio albums are great, I like to mostly listen to his live albums because listening to him live is way more fun. Probably because Hendrix knew how to jam and was an improv master. I love Hendrix. Will never get tired of listening to his music.
