Jimi Hendrix was an American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter. His career lasted only four years, but he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarist.
When he was a young man around sixteen years old, his Dad went out and bought him his first acoustic, and the next year his first electric guitar, a right-handed Supro Ozark that the natural lefty had to flip upside down to play. He was awesome and I still listen to him today.
