Light and Shade, Whisper to the Thunder

| Comments

Guitar playing according to Jimmy Page:

Dynamics. Light and shade. Whisper to the thunder. Sort of invite you in, intoxicating. The thing that fascinates me about the six string is that everyone has a different approach. They all play in a different way. And you know, there personality comes through.

Here is how I like to think of Page’s ‘personality’:

  1. Paint a picture of a forest in the mind of the listener
  2. Fill that forest with woodland creatures
  3. Burn it to the fucking ground
