Some licks and phrases from Machine Gun. The poor old mic on my camcorder is struggling in the face of 8 celestion green backs up close. Amp was Marshall 100w jcm2000 this amp seems to work best with the dunlop hendrix fuzz face, even better than my plexi..go figure ??. The univibe is an original Roger Mayer voodoo vibe. The Strat is a standard although is does have a reverse headstock and reversed bridge pickup. the fuzz is the dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz face (the blue one) I think these are replicas of the fuzzes jimi used at the maui gig and Isle of wight. At Woostock i think Jim iwas still using the dallas arbiter(red one) with the germanium transistors.. the blue ones had/have silicone ones. Jimi fuzzes were midified by roger mayer around 69-70 to include silicone transistors fro reliability.

This is my unaccompanied version of Jimi's 1983..(A Merman I Should Turn To Be) from the Electric LadyLand album I used an Danelectro Analogue echo for the underwater bits.

This is my version of Stone Free From Jimi's 1966/67 album Are you Experienced. It was a little hard to keep the momentum of the track without any backing but hope you enjoy it anyway. I used my marshall plexi head, Roger Mayer axis fuzz and my reverse headstock custom shop strat. Peace JRY

I have had quite a few requests to do this. so here goes... Soundwise I tried to aim for a cross between the Monterey fuzzed up version and the clean tones of the 'Are You Experienced' studio track. But hey as Jimi often said "Its nothing but a jam" Again its the Roger Mayer Axis fuzz with cleaner bits backed off on the guitar volume. Amp is Marshall 100w plexi head as always. The backing track is at concert pitch, I tune to E-flat most of the time so this felt really odd to play. I ust hope I have not Crucified this classic.

I have not put any lead lines in this version because I think that without the chords behind them they dont really work and most important to me is the song itself. On the First rays of the new rising sun album jimi did not use the univibe but instead uses some flanging i've tried to emulate the same effect here with a very old 70's ibanez flangerto get that undewater sound. I have always loved this song since i first heard it in my early teens on the Rainbow bridge soundtrack. enjoy.

This is the Outake version of the Electric Ladyland guitar part Played through A Roger Mayer Voodoo Vibe into a Marshall 100watt head and 4x12 cab. The One Rainy Wish version is just something I like to play about with on my own sometimes, same setup as before both recorded 5 minutes apart. Hope you guys enjoy.

This is my version of jimi Hendrix's Up From The skies from Axis Bold as Love, the clicking you can hear is the acoustic sound of the strings as the guitar is close to the camcorder microphone, could not turn the amp up as it would drown the singing. I am using a 100w marshall super lead head celestions in a half stack and roger mayer effects.

A recording on garageband of the sailors hymn eternal father strong to save, i recorded this purely with guitars as a tribute to my grandfather who served in the navy during the second world war, but sadly passed away in 1990. So this is for you Papa

Demo of Marshall 1959 SLP 100w reissue some hendrix tracks... Sorry about the lack of vocal volume as the camera was facing away from the PA 3 hendrix tunes, various degees of gain needed.. I think the ts-808 gain was backed off & the overall amount of gain was tweaked with the guitar volume as needed, have not tried the plexi with a les paul yet. :-) There is a slight echo via the vox 'time machine' in th effects loop.

An off the cuff jam Along to the baking track for Stevie Ray Vaughan's Tin Pan alley. There is only a couple of SRV licks in there but its more of a feel thing really. The amp is a fender twin ,Im going straight in with no effects other than the twins reverb. The guitar is a pale blue 60's player strat, the strings are 12's & I dont have any tabs ..its just a jam. Lots of people ask for tabs, I would love to give em to you guys but I really dont use tabs at all.

I have just brought a mid 70's JMP 100w marshall head and this is a sort of try out for it. I have plugged straight into the amp with no effects. i think this version of the jmp was the 1st to have two inputs(my plexi has 4), marshall used the extra diode they gained to create a hi input and a pre-amp volume(again this is missing from the plexi's you just have to turn those bad boys up to overdrive) hence on this amp i get some distortion at a sensible volume with no fuzz pedals. for some reason to my ear this amp sounds better than my plexi which is closer to the hendrix era amps from about 5 years ealier.

After watching the Stevie Ray Vaughan "Live At The El Mocambo" DVD I thought it would be fun to have a go at a similar version of Jimi's Third stone from the sun. The Camera's recording mike is distorting slightly butI hope you can get the general idea. I hope you enjoy JRY

This is my first attempt at an SRV Song, its not as smooth as I would have liked and is a bit stilted in places maybe its that i'm not used to playing with a drum machine. The biggest thing I am learning from listening to Stevie's playing is feel and control and tone, I am nowhere near his league but you gotta start somewhere. The click is also louder than I would have liked, anyway enough whining. I'm using a 60's player strat with 69 pickups a ts-808 and a fender blues junior amp.

I originally purchased this amp fro convenience but I am so impressed by it I may mike it through the pa and use it at gigs, Anyway I am using a roger mayer voodoo vibe with the amp everything else is included with the amps onboard effects. I am playing my version of Robin trowers "Day of the eagle" because it was the 1st song that came into my head when using the amp with the univibe for the 1st time. The amp speaker was a marshall 2x12 at 8 ohms miked with an sm57 into a joe meek valve mike pre-amp and then into my pc soundcard where i mixed it with the backing track using Sonar producer edition. The guitar is a USA strat about 15 years old with a lefty neck I bolted on myself.

This is my cover of randy Rhoads's Dee from Ozzy's Blizzard of Oz.. album. I think its pretty close, but i worked it out by ear so it might no be exaclty what Randy played. added some studio reverb in Vegas pro afterwards to help cover my shite playing :-) Please comment and rate if you like
