Yuto Miyazawa tribute to Hendrix’ – Star Spangled Banner
Ever seen a kid slay a Jimi Hendrix rendition? No? Ya, us either!
Wow. Just, wow. There aren’t many adults that know their way around a fretboard well enough to imitate Jimi Hendrix and his iconic rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner“.
When young prodigy Yuto Miyazawa picked up his Rhoads edition Flying V and began to absolutely slay the original, he had people more than blown away. If this is the next generation that will preserve the legacies of the greats, then I can rest easy tonight.
“The Star Spangled Banner” made its way into rock music history when in the summer of ’69, when Jimi took to the stage at Woodstock and proceeded to shred through the American anthem, using heavily distorted regressions and his whammy bar to simulate the song’s “rockets” and “bombs”.
I can’t wait to see what comes next for Yuto – so far, he’s graced the stage with legends like the late Les Paul, G.E. Smith, and even Ozzy Osbourne
Check him out – you’ll be just as blown away as I was!
