Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing” Voted Greatest Strat Song

Jimi Hendrix recently won one more accolade to add to his already unprecedented musical career – the title of writing and performing "The Greatest Strat Song". His composition, "Little Wing," featured on 1967's Axis: Bold as Love by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, won the title over "Layla" by Derek and the Dominos' Eric Clapton, as part of "Strat Madness”.

Fender's Strat Madness was one way the legendary guitar company is celebrating the Stratocaster guitar's 60th anniversary. As part of the online voting tournament, 64 time-honored Strat hits – selected by Fender and consumers – battled it out in a grueling head-to-head bracket challenge for the coveted title. Overall, tens of thousands of votes were tallied with Hendrix winning by almost 1,000 votes.
