Rare Footage Of Jimi Hendrix Playing Piano And Violin
Hendrix A Man Of Many Talents
Jimi Hendrix is widely considered as a musical genius. Though he’s well-known as an extremely talented guitarist, he can also play other instruments such as piano and violin.
After the social worker of their school, Horace Mann Elementary School, observed how Jimi held on to a broom as if emulating a guitar; she tried requesting for funds to be raised so they can provide him with a guitar. However, the school funding denied her request.
A few years later, while cleaning out the garbage from the home of an old woman, Jimi saw a ukelele but it only had one string. This was when he started playing by ear.
