For Black History Month 2013, The Current is spotlighting a different legendary African-American musician each week. This week, we're featuring one of rock's enduring icons, the legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix. Tune in to hear tracks from his catalog throughout the week, and visit to the website for more features about his career.
Few in history could play a six-string like Jimi Hendrix. We picked seven of the nastiest guitar riffs from the mind of the master.
Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
Bold as Love
Star Spangled Banner
