Legendary musician Jimi Hendrix was named the greatest guitar player in history on Nov. 23 by Rolling Stone magazine!
The metal laid heavy on me, burning ecstasy within my senses
Shattering the windows of my soul; tearing down unseen fences
Opening my mind to sweet nothings’ metallic nerve
Swaying bodies’ passion keeping tempo to the verve
Colors flash before me as the music takes me under
Riding on the wave of this amazing rush of thunder
Electric is the shock that wakes me from the frantic spell
As I roamed through corridors of flickering flames of hell
Blisters on my fingers sliding through the strings to which
Shivering and shaking they scream with fevered pitch
Taking me above it all so high beyond the screams
Of my guitar that takes me to Nirvana’s place of dreams

Jimi Hendrix was awesome!
I lvoe these lines…
“Blisters on my fingers sliding through the strings to which
Of my guitar that takes me to Nirvana’s place of dreams”
