Jimi Hendrix - Little Wing

Friday again and its a lovely day, sun is shining its +4 and i can feel the spring in the air. So a day as this can not be more suit for a classic tune with one of the best guitarist of all time, Sir Jimi Hendrix a man who i don't need to introduce.

And for today i will dedicate the tune to a friend of mine "Micke Sandström" that is doing a photo exhibition here in Stockholm.

Since 2004, Micke Sandström, with his eardrums at stake, standing at the edge of the stage and captured many of today's greatest artists with his camera. On Gallery Korn this weekend, you can by Mike's camera lenses relive the concerts of everything from The Hives, Neil Young, Foo Fighters and Nick Cave to Eryka Badu, The Pretenders and many others. Take the opportunity to see his exhibition this weekend. Opening Hours Saturday 12:00 - 18:00 and Sunday 12:00 - 15:00.

Todays tune "Little Wing" is a song written by Jimi Hendrix. He first recorded the song on the 1967 album Axis: Bold as Love. "Little Wing" is played using the unique chord/melody guitar style that Hendrix developed during his early career stints in rhythm and blues bands. In this style, the guitar sounds as though it is playing two parts. This is done by simultaneously playing multiple complementary notes, often parts of chords, and then changing a note within the chord to create a melodic effect. Enjoy!

I couldn't resist to add a version with Micke Sandström and Heavy Baron, filmed a few days ago from the Gallery, nice version.
