Without question, James Marshall Hendrix

by Leon B. Crews
(Tampa, Florida)

The man revolutionized the use of an electric guitar. Not only that, he took a traditional fendr stratocaster for someone who plays right-handed, and simply flipped it over and played it left handed. Hendrix could make his guitar do whatever he willed it to, and was a master of using P.A. and amplifier feedback with the feedback of his guitar. I've listened to guitarists like Robin Trower, Eddie Hazel, David Gilmore and so many others over the decades. Even Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton know that Hendrix is the greatest of the great when it comes to an electric guitar.
