There's something off for me about Hey Joe, too many Hey Joes.

Might as well keep this topical, seen as it is p.ie, but would the song have been as popular if it was called Hey Jew!? Round here it would.

To be fair, the kids OK....I've taught 'Hey Joe' to a few kids myself when giving them guitar lessons...

It's an easy tune to look and sound cool..

But the great man summed it up at around 7 minutes in..

Even Hendrix hated the bloody song
Got a Link for that?

He hated the cover of Are you experienced I know that

But he played HJ loads of times


- why would he keep on playing it if he hated it so much?

The famous impromptu Cream tribute. I love his other stuff, especially Red House. And just to look a little cool, I taught those riffs as well.

He's only 14, and has a very good command of blues scales, either through hard work or talent...but most likely a bit of both.

Hope he sticks with it.

Nerd fact: Jack Bruce, of Cream....was inspired to write 'Sunshine of your love' after attending a Hendrix concert, and the band dedicated it to him.

Apparently Hendrix played it as a tribute to them, right up to his death, without ever knowing.

A very talented lad, but I think his lead solo is a little too busy - don't try to better Hendrix!

'Hey Joe' is a fascinating song with five chords, C G D A E, the so-called 'cycle of fifths', or 'fourths' if you count downwards. On this chord progression Hendrix ingeniously imposed the minor pentatonic blues scale, notes e g a b d , complete with microtonal string bends to produce a virtuoso solo which few can emulate persuasively. Learn those five chords and those five notes young folk, and you're well on your way to becoming guitarists.

Incidentally, who actually wrote the song 'Hey Joe'?

Terrible audio. Are you serious with this rave review?
