I've been playing around with this a lot lately, not so much for the pentatonics (which is has in abundance), but for the way you can take a Gibson and a Marshall and cover everything from dead clean blues to heavier 70's crunch with just the pick attack. No need for boost pedals, overdrives, distortions, delay, or any of that stuff. Just a guitar and a great amp.
Ok, I'll see your professional shot Waters and raise you an amateur shot zeppelin at the 02 in 2007. If you can't stomach the entire thing slide it over to around 5:40 when page steps on the wah for the first time. Pentatonic goodness will be had by all.
Not really a lot of pentatonic at all in this one. But a lot of wonderful atypical chord voicings. This is a great lesson and a magnificent guitar composition. Especially coming from a no talent hack like Page.
Here is the solo. Pentatonic goodness. Lots of tasty licks as well.
Dude, I make a living off of that double-stop slide he does. I treat it as a chord, so for an A major or minor chord, I'll start at the 5th fret on the high E and B strings, and just slide it up and back, or slide down to F# to color that chord (in the key of A), etc. Marc Ford does that same move at 0:10 and 0:43 of this video (which is another example of great pentatonic soloing/filling by the way):
I wonder where Page got it from? I'm certain he didn't invent it. There is so much string bending goodness in that 10 years solo. It is 100 percent soul felt playing. Marc is my dog. I'm pretty sure he is a Page disciple as well.
