Musician Gaurav Krishnan of Bombeats Music edited together rare footage of two different instances where Jimi Hendrix played an acoustic guitar. The first half has Jimi in a studio, playing “Hear My Train A Comin'” on a gorgeous 12-string, an instrument that legendary guitarist said, “scared him to death”. The second half shows Jimi playing “Hound Dog” for a small friendly crowd, which was going along beautifully until he laughingly stated that he forgot the words. Simply amazing.
After a lot of digging, I found only 2 known videos of Jimi playing them online. Apologies for the stopping image in the first half that features ‘Hear My Train Comin’ & the poor quality of the second half of the video that features ‘Hound Dog’ that was all I could find. This one’s an essential rarity.
