Video Finds: Jimi Hendrix Plays 12-String Acoustic Blues
A well filmed clip of Jimi Hendrix playing "Hear My Train A Comin" on a 12-string acoustic guitar.
In honor of Jimi Hendrix’s birthday today, here’s a professionally shot clip of Hendrix playing a 12-string guitar.
The song, "Hear My Train A Comin'" (aka, by Hendrix, "Getting My Heart Back Together Again"), is a Hendrix original that he often played live, particularly in 1969 and 1970. It appears on the posthumous album Blues, which was created from a long-lost master tape of Hendrix alone playing a 12-string acoustic right-hand guitar, strung for left hand and singing in a Delta blues manner.
This clip is from the December 1967 live studio performance, which was filmed for and included in the film See My Music Talking, and later included in the 1973 documentary Jimi Hendrix and its accompanying soundtrack album.
