Voodoo Child
Jimi Hendrix Lyrics


Well, I stand up next to a mountain
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I stand up next to a mountain
Chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I pick up all the pieces and make an island
Might even raise just a little sand
'Cause I'm a voodoo child
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child

I didn't mean to take you up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to you one of these days
I said, I didn't mean to take you up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to you one of these days
And if I don't meet you no more in this world
Then I'll, I'll meet you in the next one
And don't be late, don't be late
'Cause I'm a voodoo child
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child
I'm a voodoo child

be late."


There are great guitarists.


And then there's Jimi.......


He has been gone for fifty years this September 2020, and he
is still fifty years ahead of every guitarist. Nobody has even remotely
close to matching him.

@Brenda Hawkins Brenda, sadly they broke up a few
months ago, but they had a small and fanatical
base of followers. Their best songs were never
recorded such as "Fight", "1998" and the brilliant
"All Will Be Revealed" which was a cross between
Hendrix and Nirvana! If the RA had been based in London, who knows what might have happened?
Too bad that greedy scumbag Simon Cowell doesn't
invest in really talented people like Josh etc.
Anyway, he is very gifted indeed and will find his way,
regardless of SC. The Rose Affair was the best group,
people never heard, but those who did see and hear
thought they were fantastic.


Jimi would have loved them.

@Brenda Hawkins Brenda, my son was very heavily
influenced by Hendrix. At the age of 13, he could play
behind his back, and with his teeth, after watching
footage of Jimi at the Monterey Pop Festival!
He formed a group with his brother called The Rose
Affair. They were highly rated.
Check them out on YouTube, they even had a track played by Tom Robinson on Radio 6.
Your grandson will find some like-minded musicians to
play with him. He is very talented.


Good luck.

Jonathan King but all the great guitarists of today wouldn’t have existed without the guys from the 60’s. Also who’s some of you’re fav modern guitarists? I like BucketHead, Mccready, John Fruscante, Trey, Friedman altho they aren’t that modern most have been playing for 20 years plus

Jonathan King Jonathan King are you saying Jeff Beck isn’t a great guitarist? Who’s better from that era? Jimi maybe, Duane? Which “unknown” “stonewalled” guitarist do you think was better than these guys? I’m not asking to be prick I’m just curious so I can have a listen
