Paganini and Purple Haze...

My kid is learning a Paganini piece on his electric guitar...and he can't recall the name of the piece.

No biggie.

But! Part of it is the intro to Purple Haze!

He hit that part of the Paganini and I laughed, saying, "Hey, cool! You snuck Hendrix into Paganini!"

He said, "Yeah!" And then played Purple Haze without ever having learned the song before!

I tried to Google the connection, but came up blank.

Anybody know which Paganini piece has the first several notes of Purple Haze hidden in it?

I'll get the name of the piece from his teacher....but not until next Thursday!

So, it's Caprice #5 in A minor.

If you slow that sucker way down, you'll hit "Are You Experienced."
