Jesus Campos 2 On November 27, 1942 a world’s new start was born in Seattle, Washington. He was an American of African, European and Mexican descent by the name of Johnny Allen Hendrix. When Johnny was only five years old, his father thought that Johnny was not such a good name and ironically changed his son’s name James Marshall Hendrix. When Jimi was seven years old he had asked his father to buy him a guitar. His father thought that guitars were something evil because they were used to play blues, which at that time wasn’t accepted by society. Jimi became so depressed because of the fact that his father would not buy him a guitar that he had to be taken to a psychologist. He the psychologist told his father that the best thing to do was to buy him a guitar; he bought him a one-stringed guitar. But his fascination for the guitar was so great that Jimi managed to get good sounds out of that so-called guitar. When his father realized how big his interest for the instrument was he decided to buy him a real guitar. Jimi didn’t have someone to teach him how to play it, so he taught himself.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
