Electric Ladyland

Crosstown Traffic, Lot Hot Summer Nights, All Along The Watchtower

Jimi Hendrix has always impressed me with his brilliant and raw guitar work, letting rip with sensational licks that still sends shivers down my spine. So it was never going to be in doubt that doing any Jimi Hendrix album was going to be difficult. Electric Ladyland really pushed me and I hope I did it justice. Happy to present you Jimi Hendrix Ukulele style!

This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favourite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged like Led ZeppelinQueen or Guns N Roses.

Possibly one of Hendrix’s most famous songs but did you know this is actually a cover song? It was written by folk legend Bob Dylan in 1967. Check out his version here.
