With Torme and Dick having died, Harry must be shitting himself.

Hendrix played with the strings in the "right" / traditional order. Bass strings nearer his head, treble towards his feet..he just modified right-handed guitars. His father used to try and force him to be right-handed. By hitting him.with a broom. Great dad!

Jimi was ambidextrous, though. Could write with both hands. Incredible talent. As one can hear, obviously.

Don't know why, but we will never see the likes of Hendrix and Dick Dale ever again. Youngsters have just not learned how to PLAY music. Just "program" it. It's all a bit sad really.

And, yes, I know I sound old man. Even if I am not.

Didn't Jimi Hendrix play his guitar the same way?

Re: Berne Torme & Dick Dale - Hovis
Yep. Like Albert King.

Incredibly hard to play complicated chords like that, but rarely did anyway.

"Nitro" by Dick Dale rocks. Fighting / dancing music.

Speedcore. Without all the gurning and shitty guitar tone. Great musician. A one off. RIP.

Just noticed Dick Dale played with his strings upside down. 6th string where the 1st should be and so on.

Shame. But decent innings.

Had lunch with Dick Dale once. Absolute loon but basically a lovely fella. Mr Motivator was on the next table wooing his mistress. All true.

Dale and Link Wray wrecked shit on those geetar strings.

I salute you Dick.
