>Hmmm...those *powerchords* sure worked for Hendrix's style, which was
honed on the chitlin circuit of RnB with some notable names at the helm,
and continued throughout everything he did until his far too early demise.

Hmmm.  As I understand it, Hendrix got thrown out of several US R&B groups 
because he wouldn't stick with the format, and he didn't really pick up the 
power chord idea until he heard Pete do it in London.  Power chords just 
aren't an element of R&B.
