I used to have this friend who loved playing guitar. I always considered him pretty closed minded when it came to music and such. He is the probbaly the only person I know who played guitar who couldn't stand Jimi Hendrix. He was heavily into "punk" music and would always make comments like "I don't know why everyone considers him so great, he dosn't even play that fast, the guitarist in the band Strung Out is much better" everytime i would put a Hendrix Cd in where we used to work. And would just kind of look at him funny. Do any of you know people kind of like this? I'm not really implying that you HAVE to like Hendrix if you play guitar, but for some reason I get pretty irritated when people say dumb things like that. There are plenty of good musicians that arn't really for me, or my style, but I still recognize the talent. I don't even play guitar, but I could imagin Hendrix songs arn't espically easy to play. Espically some of the live stuff I have heard.
