Jimi Hendrix Denied Being the Greatest Guitar Player

The legendary Jimi Hendrix claimed that he wasn’t the greatest in his craft

We all know of his musical prowess, his undeniable talent, and unmatched skills in playing the guitar. However, not everyone knows of his humility.

In an interview in 1968, he timidly answered Dick Cavette that he cannot read music. He simply plays by the ear. He had performed the greatest guitar solos, but he denied himself the title of being the greatest guitar player.

This interview, two years before he passed away, truly showcased his wonderful personality. We miss his music, but we also miss the humble and down-to-earth man that he was.
