What do you think? Ive honestly never really been able to get behind Hendrix. His songs always seem too jumbled and disorganized. Same goes for his playing style.
So many times he is the #1 Player of all time on whatever magazine, but does he really deserve to be there?
Hear me out-
I think first we have to decide what "greatest guitar player" means, and sadly, it has different meaning for different people. To me, it means the most proficient at their instrument. Undoubtedly THE BEST master of his (or her ) craft. And to me, thats not Jimi.
Now, Most Innovative guitarist of all time? Jimi. 100%. He did things with the electric guitar that are still more than relevant in today's musical world. He basically "invented" modern playing.
So what say you? Best Guitarist of all time? Best innovator? Or does "best" mean "innovator" to you? Just wondering if I'm alone on this thought process or not
