What song was hardest for Jimi to get right?   

 

TL:DR... All Along The Watchtower (which Dylan said was the better version of his song than what he did).... it was the only time the recording engineer saw Jimi yell at people....  the drummer got yelled at, the bass player walked out...

What was one of the toughest songs you had to work on with Jimi?

 

"I would say [1968's Bob Dylan cover] 'All Along the Watchtower' was probably one of the toughest. I remember there were others, but this one just stands out in my mind just because of the way it was put together.

 

"We were starting to record it, and it was, like, 10-15 takes in and, 'Oh, this is not happening...'

"I haven't heard Jimi yell at Mitch [Mitchell, drums], that was the first time. If you listen to the intro of 'All Along the Watchtower,' the time in the first four bars turns around, and Jimi loved that, but to get Mitch to do that, that was a trick because he messed it up a bit, to say the least.

"And then, of course, we got two acoustic guitars, Jimi's playing a six-string, Dave Mason's playing a 12-string, and who knows what people have been ingesting, I don't know, I didn't participate in those things... [Laughs]

 

"The intro, and then there were some timing issues, and Jimi was getting all pissed off about that, and finally we got the take together, we're rolling along, and it was just like, 'Oh, come on, we got to get this!'

"By take 27, we were there, but there was a battle, and Noel left the session because he couldn't take it anymore. He went to the pub, and then Jimi played the bass, which was that fabulous bass part."

 

TL:DR... All Along The Watchtower (which Dylan said was the better version of his song than what he did).... it was the only time the recording engineer saw Jimi yell at people....  the drummer got yelled at, the bass player walked out... so Jimi played the bass part too...
