  • You Got Me Floatin’ is a track by The Jimi Hendrix Experience which appears on Axis
  • One thing I want to add right away is that if you’re listening to this track, just take note of Noel Redding’s bass lines, without him and Mitchell, Hendrix honestly wouldn’t have had the same rhythm that he did, they definitely added something to his music

      You Got Me Floatin’ is a track by The Jimi Hendrix Experience which appears on Axis: Bold As Love. The track starts off with some backwards guitar effects to give a psychedelic tone to the song, but overall I’d say that this is more of just a rock driven song rather than a highly psychedelic one. Back to the point, the song really wastes no time starting up as Hendrix starts singing nearly right away with Noel Redding’s bass rhythm under him

      • the song the track goes instrumental where Hendrix takes the lead, although Redding’s bass line is still very prominent in the mix, and here is where the track does indeed have a very psychedelic influence because of the backwards guitar sounds and other effects which Hendrix has. The track then goes back into how it was during the first half before the guitar solo but rather than being exactly as it was the first time around, Hendrix’s guitar plays a much larger
        role in the track and certainly adds a psychedelic feel to the rest of the song. I particularly like the structure which Hendrix took with this song because he has the first half as being more of just a traditional rock song, and a good one at that, and then leads into a psychedelic guitar solo with the guitar staying pretty prominent and important until the end of the song, giving the second half a much more psychedelic feel and an excellent sound.
