    “All of my songs happen on the spur of the moment,” he says, and you know he’s leveling with you. So you ask him if he has to compensate for this spontaneity by using gimmicks. “On some records, you hear all this clash and bang and fanciness,” he answers. “But all we’re doing is laying down the guitar tracks, and then we echo here and there. We’re not adding false electronic things. We use the same thing anyone else would, but we use it with imagination and common sense. Like in ‘House Burning Down’ [Electric Ladyland], we made the guitar sound like it was on fire. It’s constantly changing dimensions, and up on top that lead guitar is cutting through everything.” Guitar Player Magazine, 1968.
