The honor of my First Post and Guitarist of the Month in 2013 go to none other than Led Zeppelin’s warlock of the 666 string, Jimmy Page! Born on January 9th, 1944, Page’s work as both a session musician and one-time bass player of The Yardbirds all pushed towards his crowning achievement as the hard-rocking-riff-ripping-face-melting founder of Led Zeppelin – THE GREATEST BAND OF ALL TIME. (
Yes, better than The Stones or Beatles…more on that later) Throughout the month I’ll be posting tips on how to play like Jimmy Page, analyzing his style and reviewing the recordings which have left deep marks on the history of rock and inspired millions of people to pick up a guitar.
