Resurrecting this to add some stuff. I think that I started this thread.
I have played off and on in a Hendrix cover band for years now. We try to play studio stuff note for note like the album. BOG stuff and other live covers have more room to jam.
I use a sunburst jazz bass when I play the Hendrix stuff. I used to have a full Marshall stack, but there are hardly any venues left where that works.
I would rock the 'fro if anyone ever asked me to! Thanks to the nice comments. I had forgotten about this thread for a bit.
