Jimi Hendrix - Send My Love to Linda (1970)

This song was recorded by Hendrix in New York in January 1970. Hendrix created the unusual, percussive guitar sound heard throughout by tapping the body of his Fender Stratocaster with his hand. As John McDermott notes in the liner notes to the album, this songs is a “fascinating work in progress. It serves as an illustrative example of how the guitarist used the recording studio to develop new material from the ground up. Hendrix would incorporate rhythm patterns that he refined over time by way of repeated playing.”
