This was a request on YouTube which I’m happy to present to you this week. The first solo is notoriously sloppy and Jimmy is really winging it throughout – this combined with the fact that there is no beat makes this a transcription nightmare. In fact, there’s really no point in trying to tab this out 100% accurately in my view. The best method for the first solo is just to follow the tab as a rough guide only. As any Jimmy Page fan knows, he didn’t really slavishly follow his studio solos anyway.
Feel free to ask questions or just share your thoughts in the comments!
