Best Answer

The only two similarities are that both songs are by the "Jimi Hendrix Experience" and are both off the "Electric Ladyland" album. "Voodoo Chile" goes for about 15 minutes and is very laid back and bluesy. "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" has completely different lyrics, has a much more hard rock feel to it and features Steve Winwood on organ and goes for about 5 minutes. The book "Jimi Hendrix - Electric Gypsy" gives lengthy explanations of both songs.

That's chile, not child. He most definitely was using voodoo to coax the sounds he made out of the equipment he used. He was a "magic boy" who could play remembered jazz and R&B lines note for note.
