Happy Fourth of July

I'm glad that Alex Tabarrok at Marginal Revolution posted the Hendrix Star Spangled Banner solo from Woodstock because I'd never actually heard it all the way through before. It is now obvious in terms of the phrasing of the solo, and specifically the bracketed use of noise effects after a phrase, how much one Kirk Hammett owes to Mr. Hendrix. If you haven't had a beer and hot dog have one, and watch out for the brown wieners.
