Huh? I've never heard people ever talk about "technical songwriting". It's not a physical process (that can be performed live), it's a mental one.

Would you be so kind as to cite your favorite Jimi songs? I admit, my knowledge on him is quite stale, and my personal discography of his has deteriorated over the years, as I kind of stopped listening to him in my early 20s. The songs of his that I do still have are pretty unremarkable.

EDIT: 5000 posts @ 1.25 / day since 08-12-2008. Woo arbitrary number.

I was being ironic.

If 6 Was 9, Bold as Love, Castles Made of Sand, Machine Gun, and Manic Depression are my top Hendrix tracks.

The Beatles beat Hendrix. Technical skill aside, the Beatles are simply just more listenable on their worst day than Hendrix was on his best. Star Spangled Banner and Revolution 9 being the obvious exceptions to that.

Jimi Hendrix took the electric guitar to another level. The Beatles took popular music to another level. So I'm gonna go with The Beatles on this one.

Why is this a decision?
