I don’t know how many of you are Jimmi Hendrix fans, but I will take a huge leap of faith and say a lot! In which case you would know that after Jimmi came to New York, he spent a lot of his earlier days performing in small venues around the Greenwich Village. You should think about that when you yourself wander around these parts. Not much has changed.
To give yourself a goal of where exactly to wander, I would suggest trying to uncover the mystical Electric Lady Studios. It is something that Jimmi himself built up through his success of The Experience. It has since welcomed so many artists. And there it sits, humbly like any other store front, on 8th street. Walking by, you would never know the historical value of this little gem. Which is why I wanted to expose you to it. Just being around it is somehow inspiring. Jimmi died very shortly after he opened this ahead-of-its-time studio, but think about this: through out all the down hill slides that many of the other studios like Hit Factory, the Record Plant, Sony Music Studios (which all closed recently), Electric Ladyland is still going strong!
While you are there… give it a buzz… maybe you can record something and be the next hit!
