Hey Guys! another Comparison I discovered! This time its K-ON!! to Jimi Hendrix one of my favorite musicians! and one of my most inspirational.
(more will be added later on)

Jimi Hendrix Live At Woodstock ( one of the biggest rock concerts ever )

Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix has been reference alot in the anime in both dialogue and screen action. I remember in the first episode from season one; The members asked Yui if Jimi Hendrix was one of her favorite guitarest


Jimi Hendrix

I forgot which episode the girls were messing around with the cleaning stuff in the class room like the brooms and stuff, and pretended they were playing there instruments just out of being eager/intersted to play there real instruments. but this can relate alot to Jimi's background
Entirely self-taught, Jimmy's inability to read music made him concentrate even harder on the music he heard. (kinda like Yui, she doesn't know to read music) Al took notice of Jimmy's interest in the guitar, recalling, "I used to have Jimmy clean up the bedroom all the time while I was gone, and when I would come home I would find a lot of broom straws around the foot of the bed. I'd say to him, `Well didn't you sweep up the floor?' and he'd say, `Oh yeah,' he did. But I'd find out later that he used to be sitting at the end of the bed there and strumming the broom like he was playing a guitar." Al found an old one-string ukulele, which he gave to Jimmy to play a huge improvement over the broom. By the summer of 1958, Al had purchased Jimmy a five-dollar, second-hand acoustic guitar from one of his friends. Shortly thereafter, Jimmy joined his first band, The Velvetones.

almost a mimic of what Sawako just did in that first clip?

History of how teeth playing starting

gives you that 60's-70's concert feel in the U.S

expect more later down the line for this comparison, I might start a series for later things instead of typing all this out
