Jimi Hendrix |Machine Gun |Live |1997 |Digital Remaster

This is an audio recording of Jimi Hendrix performing “Machine Gun” live, digitally remastered in 1997. The original recording was recorded January 1st 1970 at the Fillmore East in New York City. This was Jimi’s first live performance with Band of Gypsys, and the first without his original band.

The performance was later released as a full-length album which sadly would be his last album released before his death. Previously, Mitch Mitchell was playing drums and Noel Redding was on bass.

For this project Jimi Hendrix teamed up with Billy Cox on bass and Buddy Miles on drums. This project heavily influenced music later to come! Personally this is one of my favorites, let me know what you think!

So? “Machine Gun” still remains one of my favorite Jimi Hendrix recordings of all time! I hope you enjoyed this classic recording of one of the all time greatest guitar players ever to play music for us!

First Attempt At Jamming An Old Tune | My Guitar Story

I honestly thought that I would most likely never play guitar in a live situation again other than myself and my acoustic guitar and even then I didn’t think I would be playing in front of anyone again. It crazy how things work out.

This is my guitar story…

As the story goes, I really started playing electric guitar again because I was in the music store buying my daughter a new guitar amp and I made the foolish mistake of plugging a guitar into an amp.

Next thing you know I am buying a new guitar and well one thing led to another and invited over one of my childhood friends as well as the bass player in the band I was in when I was a kid.

At this point, I just thought it would be fun to get together and jam with my friend. I shared what we did on my Instagram channel and a funny thing happened. I will share that story on my next blog post.

Here is the video we recorded on that night.

I’ll share with you the next part of my guitar story in the next post.
