  1. Hi to all you zep fans Been playing about with guitar for 30 years or more, I've now ended up getting serious with my Led Zeppelin playing. I can crank out a few songs but I want to get a deeper insight into Jimmy's playing. I've found a few web articles but many have things like missing diagrams which is driving me nuts, so if anyone knows of good complete web articles or ones that were published in magazines (mag, year and month published so I can try to track them down on ebay) that would be great. I don't mind just hearing your opinions about his techniques, or what you have learned down the years, it's all good! My own idea is that a lot of his style was about a killer and versatile right hand, capable of intricate finger picking through to the just plain 'rude'! There was a lot going on with the acoustic strumming with accenting and missed beats which just pours tension into the music. I've learned by watching a lot of videos he tackled an awful lot of styles with his left thumb hooked well over the top - so the chords in a song like BIGLU rather than being barre chords as might be expected in the traditional sense of the first finger forming the barre, are played with the thumb - a very cool way to introduce the open strings and creating a haunting sound.
