Question: What song has the best guitar solo?
A: “The Wind Cries Mary” by Jimi Hendrix
Off the top of my head it’s “The Wind Cries Mary,” by Jimi Hendrix. Sometimes people think faster is better, just like bigger is better, but sometimes slow is better. Sometimes it’s not about the notes that are played but the ones that are not. It’s like how my favorite painter is Cézanne. He left so much out of a painting that was intentional. It’s the same thing with a guitar solo. To me, it’s really beautiful. And of course, I think the coolest mural [in Sand City] is the one of Jimi Hendrix. He has a local tie and he really became famous in Monterey.
