But if you’re still hearing Ex. 1b’s displaced rhythm, the befuddlement will continue through the solo. Ex. 2b illustrates the way I heard the solo for decades (and, if I don’t concentrate, still do), with every note played an eighth-note late. The amazing thing is, it still works, but that’s the genius of Jimi!
