At the 1969 Woodstock Festival, Hendrix presented a historic arrangement of the USA National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner for solo electric guitar. He used the whammy as a sound-painting device to represent sounds of war: bombs falling, jets and rockets flying overhead, and cries of anguish. This arrangement is inspired by this performance by Hendrix, using the Glissando Headjoint similar to the way Hendrix used the whammy bar.
This arrangement is for electric glissando flute (a C flute with a Glissando Headjoint, and effects pedals). However, it can be performed without the Glissando Headjoint or pedals, if desired.
