Manic Depression

This is something I’ve actually thought about doing for some time. Like most guitarists active today, I count Jimi Hendrix as a major influence.

I have have always found Manic Depression to be one of the more interesting tunes from his first album, probably because of the triple meter — unusual for a hard rock song.

It seemed to me that the triple meter might allow a treatment with something of a jazz feel. So that’s what I’ve done here while preserving plenty of rock to come through.

My arrangement is for guitar, keyboard, bass and drums.
