  1. i'm trying to think of a modern guitarist who could handle taking on something as massive as voodoo chile from electric ladyland. i don't mean slight return. i think we've all heard that one covered with some success. i'm talking about the blues jam which is in my opinion maybe the most psychedelic piece of music i've experienced. i'll link what's available on youtube so you can listen to it if you so desire:p

    this guy was about 19 here. id say he can handle the cover.
  6. no one, period. hendrix was, is, and will always be a complete original.

  7. Jake Cinninger! He can rip some shit and i love his tone.

    John Frusciante.. anybody?
  8. SRV would have been the best candidate

  9. agreed

    but, if i had to choose i would say...

    either Kenny Wayne Sheppard or Frusciante or maybe someone like Joe Bonamassa

    or there is always buckethead, he can play anything

  10. or this

    SRV no doubt. i wish he was still around. sometimes i swear jimi creeps through his fingers:p
    jimi at 54 seconds in haha.
  12. Not saying that he could pull it off, but if I had to choose I'd go with Frusciante.

    Dimebag FTW!
    Prince is next in line if Dimebag can't do it.

    I think it'd be hiliarious to see either one play it.
  18. yep john mayer could pull it off.
    Warren Haynes is pretty awesome too.
  19. Actually-- youtube search "John Mayer Hendrix" if you get a chance, he has done a ton of Hendrix
