Here are some things to listen for.
1. Jimi was a great rhythm player and you can hear him push along the groove of the track really well here with the lower mellow guitar part.
2. There are a lot more guitars on this track than what seems apparent on the record. In fact, there's usually at least 2 and sometimes as many as 4. When there's 2 playing, Jimi keeps them separated by having one playing in a higher register while the other is in a lower register.
3. Listen to the double on the guitar solo at 1:23, but also check out the rhythm guitar underneath.
4. The reverb on the guitar sounds very much like a spring reverb.
5. Play it all the way to the end to hear the ending that's not on the record.
