Jimi Hendrix – Star Spangled Banner

Artist: Jimi Hendrix
Song: Star Spangled Banner
Album: Woodstock

Happy 4th of July everyone! You can remain angry at the government, but support your country today. Here’s a classic gem from Woodstock 1969 to put you in the spirit.

I’ve always been obsessed with Jimi Hendrix, I know he died of an overdose, but the whole conspiracy behind his death is my guilty pleasure. I buy every magazine I see with a story on it. I remember when I was 6 and decided I want to be a rock star, my father signed me up for electric guitar lessons. We found out then that I play guitar left handed, and my instructor went to correct me (since I am primarily right handed), but then stopped and told me to hold the guitar both ways and tell him which felt right. I did, and left handed was the answer, to which he replied, “just like Hendrix”. I felt like a superstar that day. About a year into my lessons my parents got a divorce, and we moved an hour away. My mother signed me up for guitar lessons in our new town, but it was a guy in a bow tie who wanted to teach me Green Sleeves, and I wasn’t having any of that so I quit after a little while.

Have a safe and happy weekend everyone!
