The Star Spangled Drone

I was just thinking about Jimmy Hendrix's performance of The Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock and all the fun I had playing it sort of like that(but lower and slower) last year. I've thought it before; but just remembered again, that our national anthem is prime fodder for drone metal. Do it up like Hendrix and just add megatons of sustain from overdrive, distortion and feedback through a bass amp! Hold those notes as chords. Let those frequencies play out together. They sound incredibly great! Or make it officially drone metal by adding all that to playing a guitar tuned in the baritone range and add as much bass from other sources as you can! Maybe add lots of delay. Have fun! Who would've thought I could love our national anthem?!

I'd like to get turned on to more Hendrix. The blues structure of so much of his work gets in my way. There is only so much blues I can deal with. He had an influence on the first drone metal band Earth. Check them out sometime.
