Jimmy Hendrix is to this day regarded as the greatest guitarist ever! I agree, but it should be recognized that he was also backed up by a fantastic rhythm section; Noel Redding on bass, and Mitch Mitchell on drums. Mitch's playing is heavily jazz orientated, but fits in seamlessly to Hendrix's songwriting, from the blues based tracks such as Red House to the psychedelic rock of tracks like If 6 Was 9.
