I am as much to blame as the next guy, but I just realized that of all the "in the style of" lessons we don't have a Jimmy Page lesson. This should be fixed ASAP, and if I was good enough I would do it but since I suck I'll leave it up to one of our instuctors. This is a very serious issue, we don't want to upset the rock gods and put a jinx on the whole thing! ;-) ALL HAIL LED ZEPPLIN!!

Agreed. His style has influenced at least one of the other guitarists that have their own "in the style of" lesson.

Please do a John McLaughlin style lesson. I beg you lol. I need to learn from the starter of Jazz Fusion. A Jimmy Page lesson would surely go down well with everybody though. smile.gif

I have always thought of Jimmy Page as a great guitarist he was pretty revolutionary. I THINK he was the first one to use a bow on his guitar but that is uncertain. That was so simple but really great. So many guitarists have been influenced by his playing. I would love a Jimmy Page lesson. He is so well rounded as a guitarist from the immigrant song to since i've been loving you to the legendary Stairway to Heaven. Sorry for talking so much but I really like Jimmy Page as a guitarist.

And thread dies sad.gif

Page is really a Legend,has influenced MILLIONS of players world wide,no one can deny that!!

All I wanted to say that I(only me)don't see him as a unique player when it comes to leads,only leads.
And I didn't say he's bad lead player,no way,
I just said he's not THAT unique from my point of view,that's all.

But it'd be cool to have a lesson in his style,same with Clapton. wink.gif

I agree with muris, hes had good riffs and comps, but his solos didnt cut it really, not anything to different than other stuff that was being put out at the same time. And so many more players today have the same sort of style of him I feel.

I was in guitar center playing some licks 5 months ago when I only knew the pentatonic scale and a guy came up to me and listened for a while and said man you must like jimmy page alot. I said I didn't even know who he was.

Everything written above is purely my opinion, no need to argue it tongue.gif.

I agree with Muris; but we must remember that he was a very revolutionary guitarist at his time. And has written some of the best music ever. smile.gif

Plus Led Zeppelin's music laid the foundation for metal and rock for years to come. I'd say that that's a pretty huge acomplishment.

This is a little disturbing to me and I’m not sure what to think about all of these posts at this point. Some of you guy’s are saying they made a difference, and others are saying they can’t cut the mustered (so to speak) with today’s music (this is my take on what I have read so fare). Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page have truly made there stamp on music, as well as where it is today. Just cause they had older equipment and weren’t (or aren't / maybe considered) shredders doesn’t mean they weren’t cool. They are one of the reasons you are playing guitar today!

Thanks

That’s my 2 cents

PS: sorry for the spelling error. It happens

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

He was totally revolutionary, but his style is overused today(IMHO), Hes great and stuff but honestly if he put out a solo album under a different name that no one heard of I don't think his stuff would sell that well in todays day.

I probably wouldn't buy it and listen to it more than once.

Anyways, Like I should know talking about previous era's guitar gods is not for any of us to argue about, they had their time and now other's have theirs.

Muris hit on something I guess I didn't consider. His lead playing doen't really stand out as extremely unique, but his prasing and rythmic pattern's are tops! We definitely need a in style of Jimmy Page. Maybe so many have copied his style we don't realize how unique he is? ZEPPLIN ROCKS!

Well, if you think back to his era - growing straight out of the blues scene - he was pretty revolutionary. Led Zeppelin basically ripped off american blues and made british rock...He had a much darker edge than Clapton, Hendrix, or Santana...all these greats existed at one time, holy crap I was born during the wrong era!

My two cents.

It's all in timeframe. For the era, he was great. Just a different style. To be quite honest, I liked LZ, but they were never my favorite from that era. Page is famous for playing his guitar with a cello bow, as on the songs "Dazed and Confused", "How Many More Times", "Kashmir", and in the interlude of "In the Evening". How different is that, I would say that's a matter of style.

He did recruit JB, and RP back when the band was called the Yardbirds. If I'm not mistaken, JPJ actually contacted him to join the band.

So yes, IMO, I would consider him great! biggrin.gif

Oh, poor Muris, hehe, he only have explain his own opinion. Don't worry guys, I think the best solution is a "In the style of Led Zep" because they had an interesting style, and it's easier to do this lesson smile.gif
