Do you ever play "The Star Spangled Banner" or your Country's National Anthem on guitar?

    Hendrix was cool and changed RnR forever. No Hendrix and there'd be no Blackmore, no Halen, no Yngwie,...he changed the game.

    Amazing what a Blues Player accomplished with volume, overdrive and wah. He broke a lot of new ground and set a new standard for all time.

    Is butthurt some sort of special term for you Malikon? Never heard the phrase. But full clench was hilarious.

    Never had any Hendrix knickers either. But it seems like you were really excited for the opportunity to trash talk a dead man. Classy. Really classy.

    And thanks for the warnings. As the chief officer for internet decorum you're doing an absolute bang up job. Here, and everywhere.

    Yes. I remember, as a little kid, that Hendrix was criticized (I think by Nixon) for his rendition of the Anthem.

    I get it, you love Hendrix, I like him too. Doesn't change anything. The truth isn't trash talking. Hendrix doesn't need your overzealous defending.

    trust me. I'm no zealot. I do think it's hilarious that people think that they're doing anything close to original by copping hendrix's ssb and in the same breath saying his version isn't good.

    That's humor. Stallone memes? Not so much.

    I don't love Hendrix. He's great. I appreciate his work. I'm not a Hendrix historian or up on his personal conversations with his barrack buddies.

    But...he is dead. And you are trash talking a dead man. Truth? Ive got zero idea.... But that doesn't change the trash talk or the living status of the man you're directing at.

    We often forget (and some never knew or acknowledge) that the very characteristics that make for a creative innovative artist say, don't make for a very good soldier. And maybe vice versa. And it's nobody's fault. Some people do battle in other ways.

    Although I don't think wanking is something exclusive to artists by any means. :laugh2:
    I'm sure it's not unheard of in a barricks situation. Especially Ft Campbell Kentucky. :naughty:

    I'm from Kentucky btw. So I can say that. :cool2:

    In fact my brother Bobby was at Ft. Campbell in the late '60s. But I imagine Hendrix had come and gone by then. Pun intended.

    I watched an old interview with hendrix a long time ago. I can't remember exactly what ot was but he talked about faking injury trying to get medically discharged. I like his music..but prefer to hear others play most of it.

    Absolutely damn right.
    Absolutely damn right again.

    And I don't give a flying frick at a rolling doughnut if he doesn't like my modding style. Relief is but one click away. He can go elsewhere.

    And in case anyone doesn't quite get the Ft Campbell connection, it's the home of the 101st Airborne Division.

    I have always found it amusing that the music for our National Anthem is from a British pub song.

    And the words were composed during a fight with the British.

    I really enjoy it being performed by whomever, especially on guitar. I very much enjoyed our Forum Brothers' renditions.

    I would also like to hear anyone else playing their Nat'l Anthem on guitar.

    I ran into the guy that is in charge of choosing who does the anthem at the big games on campus this afternoon.......Game on!!

    The crowd and energy at these hockey games are off the chart.
    It'll be the biggest crowd I've been in front of if this happens.

    This time....I AM gonna go all out Hendrix mode.....fuzz....univibe.....wah....
    And yeah......I've got a white strat with a big headstock.

    Fanboi to the extreme.

    Since I'm not gigging these days, this is the only way for me to get my rock 'n roll yayas out.

    That is terrific. Hopefully it can be filmed, and you can share it.

    Headband too?

    I learned it when I was a kid. Tried to do my Hendrix impression but it never went very well for me.

    Whitney Houston's rendition is the best I've heard. She knocked it outta the park.

    I think even Phil47uk will agree with me on this one... :dude:
