This, to me, is the coolest riff Page ever put down on guitar. Is it a traditional blues progression? Sure, but the way Page combines this acoustic riff with electric guitar and turns it into a blues rock masterpiece still astounds me today. He was a little over twenty when he recorded this. The swagger of this song is still unmatched in my opinion. You can bring up Beck, Clapton, Richards, Townsend, or Steve Vai, but none of them put anything down that sounded as confident and cool as this song.

I like it ! love the sound of the 12 strings, it match very well with the original. I don't bother to tune my 12 strings to other tunings than standard, I'm too afraid to break a string haha. Well done

Thank you! This was my first attempt with it on the 12. Took me thirty minutes to retune it. I'd ways thought this was an electric song, so it kinda blew my mind when I read Page used an acoustic 12 for the main guitar.

Excellent, very nicely played. This makes you appreciate the great sophistication of what Page played. It's fairly simple but so musically rich. When you hear it isolated and see it demonstrated, it highlights it's greatness. I've been doing some drum demos of Bonham's drumming on my new YouTube channel BONZOLOGY with Terry and George. Check it out!

Thanks, and will do.

Dude -- where did you get that slide and what kind of slide is it? Never seen that before - awesome.

It's called a jet slide. Allows you to play with all four fingers.

Sweet -- it looks really good -- did you use one with glass or just metal? (I see they have a few different options).

Metal. I didn't know they had glass ones.

They've got models that mount a rounded glass piece over the metal rod... I assume it must be thicker as a result.
