An electric guitar lesson on how to play the guitar solo from “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin, played by the incomparable Jimmy Page. This solo influenced a generation. Maybe the 6 most important licks ever played in rock, learning this is a must for all rock guitar players.
He gets that nasty treble tone by using a wah pedal fully depressed, this is a trick used by a lot of guitarists back in the day including Carlos Santana and Neal Schon.
No one will EVER replicate Jimmy Page’s exact feel, vibrato or attack on this classic solo, but this lesson will teach you the notes and give you a good base to work from.
Give me a thumbs up if you like the lesson, and subscribe man!
I get a lot of questions about my tone so here’s what I’m using:
My amp is an Egnater Renegade head through a Marshall 1960b cabinet. I use a TC Electronics Nova System through the loop for effects. On almost all songs I just use a digital delay, roughly 400ms, but some stuff I use tap tempo to set the delay. I also use a BB preamp on most lead tones and sometimes (rarely) a Boss CS-3 compressor. The reverb is from the amp. My wah is a Dunlop MC404 CAE Dual Inductor, REALLY great pedal! I also use a Polytune tuner which is a fantastic.
My guitar is a 1975 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. I have Suhr Aldrich pickups on it. For this tune I had the phase switch activated so the pickups are running in single coil mode.
Thanks for all the comments, and questions and of course for subscribing. I really appreciate the support. Good luck with your guitar playing.
