That is Eddie Hazel's 10 min guitar solo masterpiece! Funkadelic

Bobby - were you listening to these guys back in 71?

That is the tune. I only learned of this tune this week! How did I ever miss it? How could it be I never knew of Eddie Hazel? The guy is dead already! I listened to his Maggot Brain solo on the TV show House in the Down Low episode. I had to know who it was playing that lead.
I guess I can do a down load but I am concerned about doing that on the net. Much safer to get copy of an existing CD from a fly guy I think. My step son would down load mp3's and I got all sorts of spy crap.
Listen to the "head" version rather than the live. The live you posted doesn't do it for me.
p.S. Did you know of Eddie before today?

Bobby - I edited the original posting. I don't think that was Hazel or Hampton. This one is the head version I think you are referring to. I came across another version where Hampton and Hazel are on stage together.
and I had never heard of Hazel before your post. I had heard of Funkadelic and George Clinton, but I never heard any guitar playing like this being associated with them.

Did you listen to the studio cut in which Eddie plays over a simple Em chord progression?
That is the cut they used on House. It just blew me away.

I think the link I have posted is the studio version that was used on House. There's a comment from someone stating that.
here's a live version of Hazel and Hampton together in 86 playing Germany
not Maggot Brain, but a nice lil diddle http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfGatOUwyMg&feature=related
