Hendrix‘s style: Big Loud Undisciplined Dirty Reckless Backwards & Dangerous. His status as a legendary artist comes from his imperfections(IMO) in the way he played & lived..only four years in the limelight but enough time to change rock and blues in way most spend their entire career doing.Addressing social issues. Even the way he played guitar, a lefty playing a right handed guitar-so upside down— restrung the opposite way (if you know anything about guitars thats all kinda crazy) HUGE amounts of sustain to hold notes to send his message across,sounds like a train coming in…Was messy you can hear him fretting all kinda things…I loved it yo…listening to other guitarists of the time and era he was as rebel as it got. Maybe thats why he resonated so much with me and my approach to breakin’…while everyone else was playing clean like the beatles this man was causing all kinds of hell….burning guitars…playing the national anthem in a way that hella reflected the times. Not to mention being a black artist in a “white dominated genre” of music. He hated his voice hated hearing recordings of himself sing and play….”people are weird man how can they dig this hahaha” “man they dont understand it” that humbleness resonated with me too. i hate watching footage of myself or people watching it. lol.
My pops showed me him and let me rock out to wild thing when i was still in diapers. Stuck with him while I was in my teens all the way till now.
A lotta people pull inspiration from different sources people places…this is where I get mine from. Really dig gettin in the studio and cranking up machine gun and getting down. The way i break isnt as precise as everyone else…when im in my zone its definitely this style…
