It doesn't track very well on the low strings, the lower down you go. Jimmy page is seen here with Robert Plant playing the unique Giannini Craviola on 6-23-1972 at Sports Arena in San Diego Playing his 1970 model Giannini CraViola 12 string guitar for Tangerine. Almost any guitar you pick up will have a couple notes somewhere that are just a little off, even if the tuner says it's perfectly in. Yes, that show was the source of the Westwood One Superstar Concert Series broadcast of Jimmy Page for November 25, 1988. I got some time with him in private where no one else was waiting to talk. Stay tuned for part two later in the week. And then, each album that I do is gonna be different, hopefully.
Not really that many for a superstar. The guitar is a bit of a comprise, it's never perfectly in tune anyway. I guess what seems to be easy to me, 'cause I suppose you play the way you think, or whatever. I mean, over here, you were lucky to have been around then. If the legend in question is forty-four year-old Jimmy Page, the answer is twofold. But with this, he had a chance to.
Again, it's both, isn't it? I just thought I'd be more reckless on this one, really. Not really that many for a superstar. It's a handy thing have, to say the least. The inventive, layered, melodic playing I always liked Led Zeppelin for was hardly anywhere to be found here. Brings back a lot of great memories for me of that time.
During our conversation, Page lit a succession of Marlboro Light 100's while doing his best to be cordial and cooperative. The two telecasters you mentioned are one in the same. Its a pretty spotty album-like a whole bunch of different recording sessions all tossed together equaling something of album length. That is my characteristic and it's my identity as you hear it. Yeah, you can bet that. This has all the earmarks of an afterthought 'weekend warrior' type of music project.
In this case, the methodology is employed to create the feeling of spontaneity. Did you learn how to do that while making this album, or have you used your home studio in the past? There 's a knock at the door, and Page opens it. In fact, we did some of the Zeppelin stuff on In Through The Out Door there. Iam sure i heard Jimmy say himself in an interview that it was the Red Custom Colour Les Paul that was the guitar that got to much taken out of it and lost its quilty of sound, not the Tele. Indeed, the stuff he plays here is as thick as Arnold Schwarzenneger's torso, as shimmery as a mirage in Death Valley. His paint job totally screwed up the sound and the wiring, so only the neck pickup worked.
I have since heard a rumor that the radio broadcast may have been from Dayton, Ohio at the Hara Arena a few nights later. They're present in order to prevent Outrider from being nothing more than stiff competition for Joe Satriani. That was the basic idea of it. Let's look at what gear and equipment has been seen in Led Zepplin's Jimmy Page's Guitar Rig. Well, I'm not trying to be flippant here, but I just play the guitar, don't I? When you're in that sort of situation, do you have to impose a kind of discipline on yourself -- a way to incorporate your work into the context of your home life? Couple of doublenecks on the left.
It had gold plated tuners, rosewood sides and back and sitka spruce top. So the album is not so bad in my book. I haven't tried, for instance, the new Casio one. You would never get to play them all. It was truly one of most profound musical moments of my life.
Jones can be thought of as usual as the quiet bass player that could get replaced relatively easily when in reality he had a lot to do with what the great music that made Page and Plant originally great together previously. The rock and blues material on Page's first album was created in just this sort of devil-may-care fashion. That actually was the first riff I came up with in the studio. But I don't think anyone really knows, well maybe Jimmy does know, but I can't recall having seen him answer such a question, which is a bit strange considering that there is a shitload of guitar mags interviews with him. He was warm and funny, I was pretty blown away to be meeting and chit-chatting with a real rock god of the guitar like no other. And like you, he's got a studio in his home -- right next to it, anyway.
What I hear on your solo album is a very familiar sound -- a sound that you've been making for some time now. This instrument is pictured on the front cover of Eric Clapton 1970 , and was used extensively to record Derek and the Dominos' Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs 1970 , including the title track. Half an hour in the studio and he was out the door, probably. Whereas you 've got the other end of the scale, where Chris Farlow just made up the lyrics as he went along on the blues, just as I'll make it up when I'm playing, at the same time. And when I went back there, that, along with quite a few other things -- Zeppelin tapes, etc.
I mean, I started a solo career prob'ly pretty late in the day, possibly. He switched the maple neck for the rosewood neck from the 1959 Fender Telecaster for the 1979 Knebworth tour. Page recorded the music at his personal studio. He had it painted brown and installed a b-string bender. I'm sure he has quite a few.
