The ability to play/make music is a gift that not everyone gets. Those of us who have it should use it.

I don't think anyone can touch this guy. The total control and command over that guitar at full volume thru walls of Marshalls is quite unbelievable.

That Metallica version was pretty cool. I like that they didn't try to ape Jimi's version, but put their own spin on it.

My hero....

I just meant this is a great SSB more in the vein of the original without deviating too much, as is de rigueur at televised sports events. I really like the really shiney guitars made just for the event - wonder who owns them now!

WOW!

Madison Rising does a freakin' incredible version of the song, not just an instrument solo. And there's two versions!
:highfive:

This is the original with over 6 million views


And this one looks newer, with only 73k views


Ms Unit and I were both leaking water from our eyes after watching this on my HTC One with "Boomsound" and incredible windows phone that has speakers on both sides of the screen and in the front. Sounds almost as good as over my JBL's!!!!
