You played an accurate transcription of Villanova Junction, thank you :-))))

The piece is in A minor scale (5th fret), and easy to play once you get used to
play the octave riffs.

For the main octave riff, I always use my thumb for the lower strings of the
first 4 notes and play 5th note and octave slides with my index finger
and pinky:

E|-5-5-------------------5--|

I fret 6th and 5th string like so, but you'll find the most comfortable fingering
position for yourself after a few runs through the song. This is just the fingering
I use. Furthermore, fret 6th (low E) string with your thumb throughout the entire
song.

You can improvise on minor scales yourself and stretch the song to 5-10 minutes.

About the artist behind Villanova Junction:

Jimi Hendrix (November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter whose guitar playing was influential on rock music.[1] After initial success in Europe, he achieved fame in the USA following his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival. Later, Hendrix headlined the iconic 1969 Woodstock Festival.

Hendrix helped develop the technique of guitar feedback with overdriven amplifiers.[2] He was influenced by blues artists such as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Albert King, and Elmore James,[3][4][5][6] rhythm and blues and soul guitarists Curtis Mayfield, Steve Cropper, as well as by some modern jazz.[7]

Carlos Santana has suggested that Hendrix's music may have been influenced by his Native American heritage.[8] As a record producer, Hendrix also broke new ground in using the recording studio as an extension of his musical ideas; he was one of the first to experiment with stereophonic and phasing effects during recording.

Hendrix won many of the most prestigious rock music awards in his lifetime and has been posthumously awarded many more, including being inducted into the USA's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. An English Heritage "Blue plaque" was erected in his name on his former residence at Brook Street, London in September 1997 and his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (at 6627 Hollywood Blvd.) was dedicated in 1994. In 2006, his debut USA album, Are You Experienced, was inducted into the United States National Recording Registry and Rolling Stone named Hendrix the best guitarist on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003.[9]
