Spanish Castle Magic Jimi Hendrix Style

73 ratings | 3239 views
Jamming on the Jimi Hendrix song Spanish Castle Magic from the album Axis Bold As Love. The backing track I'm using is one that's on YouTube, but I've edited it in Cubase to make it longer. Spanish Castle Magic is one of my favourite Jimi Hendrix songs, and I'm really glad I can post a video of it. Very often Jimi would extend the solo section when playing live, sometimes going very far from the original structure of the song. There are some versions where there is more improvisation than actual song, one of which is known as 'The Symphony'. These were along the same lines as the Woodstock Improvisation. While I'm not ready to do something like Woodstock Improvisation yet, I've included the end of a different take of my version, which reminds me of that. My gear is... Japanese Stratocaster... MaxonCP-101 Compressor... Budda Wah... MXR Phase 90... DIY Fuzz Face... DIY LPB-1... Fender Frontman 15 amp. Fuzz Face and Wah are essential for Jimi Hendrix style tones. My Wah is placed before the Fuzz Face and the way I got them to work well together was to build a Klon buffer on the input of the Fuzz Face. The Klon buffer is very transparent and as far as can tell hasn't changed the tone of the Fuzz Face (as some buffers do). The Klon buffer is the input section of the famous Klon Centaur pedal. I hope you enjoy my version of Spanish Castle Magic by Jimi Hendrix :)
