Spanish Castle Magic - Jimi Hendrix Cover

220 ratings | 53957 views
Another selection from "Axis: Bold as Love". The Spanish Castle Club was a club in West Seattle, where Jimi played as a teenager. It "took a half a day to get there" since his friends car would often break down on the way to the club from Seattle's Central District. Peace Love and Happiness to all!

I just can say keep on filming some of your covers (if possible), it is very cool. Specially from somebody who mainly learns over his ears. There are so many "Hendrix cover" vids or artists, but there are not so many that try to stick to the original and are good enough (sorry to say that, but yes it is Jimi). And to "hold the line" to the original (if you can) is awesome !! BTW: And i am just listening to "Dolly Dagger". a great song, do you play that too ?
Robert Warwas (5 years ago)
I have played guitar on and off since I was a teenager. I don't use tab, since I trust my ears to find the notes. I consider my playing as "do-it-yourself"...similar to being a handyman around the house. Only difference, I'm making a lot of noise!
Steve Tramp ~ Berlin (5 years ago)
GReat - can you tell me how long did you have to learn the song till you could paly it that good ? I have problems with learning with a tab too long..

Robert Warwas (8 years ago)
There was a club in a suburb south of Seattle Wa., named the Spanish Castle Club. Jimi frequented this club in his teen years. I don't know the actual details of why Jimi wrote the song, but you can bet the club was the inspiration for this song. =)

guth4n17 (9 years ago)
is there any way that i could get this backing track?
Robert Warwas (9 years ago)
It's made from the original studio track, only the guitar track is dropped out. I found it on eBay a few years ago. It's basically Jimi/guitar karoake!!!! So cool. =D
sneekman (9 years ago)
What version of Spanish Castle Magic is this? The backing track you have on that is
Robert Warwas (9 years ago)
Someday, Sam. Someday.... So much Jimi, so little time! =D

Thank you for putting this up. It's really awesome. I'm putting my Purple Haze cover up soon.
Robert Warwas (9 years ago)
This is pure tube overdrive, man! No pedals used here. It's the lead channel on the Mesa/Boogie DC-5, with the gain set on 8. Thanks for watching, stratocaster7219!
stratocaster7219 (9 years ago)

thank you for posting killer videos
Robert Warwas (10 years ago)
It's a 1996 USA Strat (Fender 50th Anniversary) w/ rare painted headstock. It's also has Fender CustomShop '54s pickups. Thanks for watching, OhYeah729!
Robert Warwas (10 years ago)
Yeah, a gear video is a good idea. I'll work on that. =D My tuning here is Eb (tuned a half-step down). This was one of Jimi's primary tunings. Thanks for watching, TehManofMusic!
Robert Warwas (10 years ago)
Thanks, kris! I appreciate it. =D
Robert Warwas (10 years ago)
You're too kind, doomrocker666! Thanks for watching, man!
Robert Warwas (10 years ago)
No, sorry I have not tabbed this. But, I think Andy Aledort has a great transciption on a DVD available on guitarworld d.o.t c.o.m He is very accurate at what he does! Hope this helps.
Robert Warwas (10 years ago)
OK, I'll work on the audio levels. Thanks for watching, adx16!
Francisco Requena (10 years ago)
Very good cover. Just one problem, I can't hear the gitar as good as is (backtrack too loud I think) Keep up the great job :D
Robert Warwas (10 years ago)
On the contrary, I am learning from you, makes69! Thanks! =D
Robert Warwas (10 years ago)
With players like jimicolors and me, the long fingers cause us to fret the strings at an angle. It's as if we need a fatter necks. Anyway, Jimi used his thumb often. Two things happen...you can do additional note inflections with the free'd up fingers, and you don't need to "reach around" as far to make a barre chord. Thanks again for the observations!
Robert Warwas (10 years ago)
Thanks, fendermac! Coming from you, that's a real compliment. =D Peace as always!
Robert Warwas (10 years ago)
Thanks, stratofliyinV! I do my best doing covers of Jimi's music, but the best player by far is YouTuber "jimicolors". Check his channel page. He truly channels Jimi's vibe. Thanks for watching my vids. I hope you get a few Jimi tunes down! =D Peace~
Robert Warwas (11 years ago)
I learned them all by ear, bro. As a result, I do not play the solos as well as I would like to, but I feel pretty good about the rhythm sections. GuitarPlayer magazine put out a DVD last summer, where Andy Aledort teaches every song on the album "Bold as Love". This song is on it. Check eBay for one. Good luck! Thanks again for watching! Peace.
