Released in August of '67, "Burning of the Midnight Lamp" is the first recorded example of Hendrix using a Cry Baby. From then on, Hendrix used the wah wah a lot. "Up From the Skies," from Axis: Bold as Love, shows Jimi's jazziest and most subtle use of the wah wah as he uses it to add quick, throaty sweeps to the tune's hip chord voicings.
For the most part, Hendrix's wah wah technique was extremely bold. Whether it was for propulsive rhythmic accents, like on the stinky funk of "Little Miss Lover," or as a constant force on tracks such as "Still Raining, Still Dreaming" or "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)," Hendrix managed to use the wah wah in cavalier, over-the-top ways without ever wearing it out—not an easy feat!
