Jimi Hendrix with his 12 string acoustic guitar. Filmed in widescreen. A very clear image of Jimi and his guitar work.If you didn’t know this was Jimi Hendrix, you’d be certain it was a recording by one of the legendary blues players from the Mississippi Delta. Perhaps Lead Belly, Son House or Bukka White, especially Lead Belly as he was a 12 string master.
This is pure unadulterated Delta Blues. Jimi is channeling those roots and those masters he heard growing up and sucked in like the musical sponge he was. And remember: he’s improvising this. It is the Deep Blues of The Delta, as deep as Robert Johnson, Skip James and Muddy Waters. Hendrix was a Bluesman at heart.
