Now that's just incredible... Paul McCartney saying HE was lucky cause he knew Jimi Hendrix. One of the Beatles! That's respect
Paul and Jimi are both Left handed players... stand in front of any righty player like Lennon and it's all Mirror image = so easy to learn.. - and here's little known secret... Ringo is a lefty drummer playing a righty drum kit... leads with a cymbal instead of a snare...

Buddy Cox said "That Jimi learned to play guitar so well was in Nashville in 1962-1963.I think the reason why Hendrix was better than his contemporaries in London is because Hendrix had fierce competition in Nashville. People like Clapton, Beck, Peter Green (Of Fleetwood Mac) and Jimmy Paige were the reigning Gods in the U.K. at the time with little or no competition.

I love Paul M.  But please.  Paul doing Jimi is like Jimi doing Paul.  Don't try either one by either one.
