Today's Song - Voodoo Child (slight return) - Jimi Hendrix

Comments - Not to take anything away from Purple Haze, All Along the Watchtower, or Crosstown Traffic but this is my favorite Hendrix song.  It somehow in my opinion surpasses all of the others in raw emotion and power.  Looks like my Tuesday is off to a better start than my Monday, but who's isn't really.  One day closer to the weekend.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd is an incredible guitarist I've never heard his version of Voodoo Child.  Where do you find it?  I kinda like the SRV version but even that somehow falls short of the original.

Great, great song... definitely my favorite as well. It's a song that has been covered by a multitude of artists, but very few seem to capture that "emotion and power" that Hendrix had. Kenny Wayne Shepherd does a version I like a lot, but it's still nothing close to Jimi.
