just curious, i know jimmy is tuned down a whole step on power to love but does anyone know what tunning he is in for message of love. any tips on this song would be appreciated i.e. key, tone, effects. if you haven't heard this song and you like jimmy you definately need to pick up bad of gypsys. great album and it should open the eyes of anyone who hasn't understood what is great about jimi.

I thought he always tuned down a half step only. Chances are thats the one....

I bought this album when it came out in 1970. That was when they only had big LP records, and 8 tracks. :D

I think this album is the very best Hendrix album ever. I spent months copying these songs. I loved Message of Love and Power of Love.

Not completely sure what Jimi (that's how you spell it) was using, but he usually used a Wah, Octavia, Fuzz Face, and Uni-Vibe. That was his standard pedals setup. He usually used Marshall 100W Super Lead amps. He used many amps but this was his favorite.

I am with you on this album. It is the best.

If you know something better than Rock and Roll, I'd like to hear it - Jerry Lee Lewis

wes, i don't know how i missed it but i have had this album for a few years now and have only just now realized the power of this song. i think i focused on machine gun and power to love( which has the best note ever played during the intro the lone open low note after a run high up on the fret board). I think it is the octave pedal that throws me off a bit. thanks

To me , All along the watchtower appeals as hendrix's best.
