What, no mention of Cornell Dupree?! Unless I am remembering incorrectly, Jimi and Cornell played together in a backup band, and Cornell's rhythm guitar style greatly influenced that of Mr. Hendrix, no?
Take a listen to King Curtis Live at the Filmore for evidence...

The thing about Jimi is that everybody can relate to his music, and he is only using a guitar...If you think about it, not many guitar players do that, Satriani comes to mind

Awesome background info on Jimi. I remember the impression and defiantly Curtis Mayfield. I am just touching the surface of guitar playing and learning some Hendrix riff. You article touch a deep past as when I was a kid of 10 or so I remember getting ready for school and listening to those soul guitar players. Like Duane Allman and many others that I connected the pieces in my later years o f listening to rock and soul music. And because of those influences. I have coined my own music."funk and roll rock and soul. A little Jimi a little Wilson picket, led zeppelin and a little Skynard and it rocks. Thanks for the memories and lesson.
