Guys, this is pretty neat stuff. Good job by all. I typed up some thoughts while listening to each. I thought it to be quite interesting that the whole song takes on a different vibe on Kalle's. I thought of big Rockin' Blues for 'dog and Dan and a smoke filled Blues Bar somewhere along the river for Kalle's.

'dog: I loved it. Especially later in the song where the playing seemed to be more energized and took control of the wah. Did you do this in a bunch of takes or just a few? Just curious. I do the all in one take sometimes and patch up errors if I think I really need to. Maybe leaving "Jimi" a bit more room early on might be my only thought of doing something different. (although, after thinking about a bit more, Jimi often didn't leave himself room. The heck with the rules!) :)

Dan: This is about what I would expect to hear if I heard the song come on the radio. Was this with the LP? I thought I heard some thickness in the tone, early on especially. Nice playing throughout. I thought coming out of the solo was REALLY fluid and natural or otherwise sounded great.

Kalle: Nice job! I liked the tone. Driven, but the playing ain't not hiding behind nuttin'. The bends and vibratos all sounded good. Kind of a more laid back, too-cool-for-school type of vibe.

Thanks Roy for the nice words.
It was a bit of challenge to do this, but very fun.
I liked dogs wah wah version and Dan´s multiguitar mix.

Thanks Roy & Kalle for the kind words & smokindog for putting this project together. It was a lot of fun. 8)

Roy, I used my Squire Tele for the opening bit, my Epi Lp & Oscar Schmidt Delta King for the rhythm tracks, (there are actually 4 rhythm tracks, but I had to back them off a bit because you couldn't hear the lead guitar!), and my Fender Strat for all the leads.

Kalle, I enjoyed your impression of the song. Like Roy said, gave it a completely new laid back vibe. 8)

smokindog, your lead work was awesome & you rocked that wah-wah pedal!

Thanks guys :D I did mine in one take. I figured that I would only get one shot at it playing live at the bar Although I did remove on bad note I also used my new Vox tonelab st. I'm still learning how to use it.

Dan, I loved your multi track approach to this ( I tend to use that approach myself). It Was fun to listen to. I thought you were playing keyboard in the back ground.

Kalle, Nice and laid back 8) its cool how the guitar can make the whole band sound different 8)

BTW if any one else wants to step up and jam with the band just record it and send it to [email protected]
and I will get it posted ASAP

I also did the recording in a one take, except of the intro arpeggio.
This was not my initial idea, but i just let it go when I was playing (had made some rehearsing improvisations before).
Afterwards I did some editing , but I can still hear some bad bendings ...
I used my Laney Bass amp head (has a good recording output) with fully overdrived tube pre amp,
plus some reverb added in the recording SW.
Guitar was my Yamaha RGX 320 with new pickups (Tonerider Alnico IV Classic , Humbucker PAF type).
These pickups has a much more balanced sound compared to the original pickups, that has a very dark bassy sound.

Same here with the leads. I wanted it to sound as "live" as possible.

There's a Red House over yonder that's where the boys play.....

Pretty cool. I see everyone did there own interpretaion of the song and didn't really play Jimi's version per se, but you all had some interesting stuff in there.

This is interesting because I just started learning this the other day. I only have the intro and a few lines of the verse down but it'll take me awhile to get the whole thing down, there's just a lot of notes to remember.

I tried a few times. Typical results. over three minutes of playing turned out some good phrases and some not so good phrases. I'm having a good degree of difficulty determining what the difference is between "accent notes" and "incomplete phrases". Some of my phrases leave you on the edge of your seat waiting for more. So what do I do? Play more to cover that up. The spiral keeps going and the stench is unbearable.

That is wild. Sometimes the tempo even seems to have changed.

This was a great listen, guys. Fun to hear the different interpretations.

Keep working on it Roy. You know what they say about practice.
