  1. GREAT videos! I'm not even a drummer (I play guitar), but I sat here and watched your entire video about the "2:35 fill" during "I Can't Quit You Baby". I absolutely love that fill, and I air-drum it every time I hear it. For what it's worth (a guitar player's dumb opinion), I think you're right about the bass drum in that fill. It does sound naked without it. Damn. Now I wanna dig my drums out of storage.
  2. The closest pedal I've seen, by far, is the Strymon El Capistan. Quite pricey, though it's worth every penny
  3. Evster has it right on the money! But, if you're still interested in the tab, here is a fairly accurate version of it: Led Zeppelin - San Francisco Solo Tab Hope this helps! -Jason

    I backtraced it!

    March 27, 1975

    My father was at this show.
  6. Welcome to the forum, Astrosmoke! I used to live in Wrightwood for seventeen years before moving to Vegas.
  7. That is indeed an MXR Phase 90 pedal. The black coloring on it is tape used to secure the pedal to the stage so it wont move around.
  8. Here is a photo of the pedals under Jonesy's Fender Rhodes:
  9. When Jonsey was playing keys, mandolin, or guitar, he played the bass with his feet using bass pedals. They're basically a set of enlarged piano keys which can be played with the feet. When stepped on, they play the bass note. Watch the video at around 5:50. You can see Jonsey make good use of his bass pedals.
  10. Wow! I'm a bit ashamed to say this, but this is the first time I've ever heard of the color-able inner sleeve of ITTOD. Would anybody happen to have a picture of this? I can't seem to find one online, and my copy of the album was lost in a flood (ironically enough).
  11. Great minds think alike! I've been doing the same thing with one of my acoustic guitars until I save up enough money for a mandolin. I've been "mandolinizing" my Kramer Ferrington, which has a nice cutaway, which makes the higher frets easier to play with.
  12. From just the video alone, I definitely like the Dunlop Cry Baby Classic a lot more. For me, the Vox is too shallow and doesn't have as nice of a wah range as the Dunlop has. The Dunlop certainly has more of a Jimmy sound and vibe than the Vox does. Just my two cents.
  13. I went through every song, and found more to add to the slide list: Your Time is Gonna Come Tangerine That's The Way Bron-Y-Aur Stomp The Rain Song Trampled Underfoot Sick Again We're Gonna Groove That's all I could come up with! -Jason
  14. I don't think Led Zeppelin played "Tea For One" live due to its similarities to "Since I've Been Loving You." On the 1977 tour, Jimmy used some of the phrases from "Tea For One" in "Since I've Been Loving You." Page & Plant, however, did perform the song during their tour of Japan in 1996. Here are some videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WP3x-gXg1o8 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Xysl53a4PI Cheers!
  15. You gotta remember, Robert Plant isn't just speaking words, he's SINGING them. Sure, if Robert and I were in a room face to face talking to each other, I'd be able to know exactly what he's saying, but when he's singing, especially in the style he sings in, sometimes words escape the bounds of pronunciation and become more of a melody. On top of that, some phrases in the English language, when sung, sound very similar (i.e. "groovy leather trim" vs. "good electric"). Maybe that's not how it works in Russian music, but in Western music, I can assure you, that's the case.
  16. Nice post! I've been wondering the same thing for a while. Most of the Jimmy Page gear pages cite him using a Gibson SG occasionally in 1980, but I've never seen or heard any proof.
  17. huw has it right on the money. For the solo, I believe he has the switch in the middle position to achieve that more nasally sounding tone. He also clicks on the Echoplex for a little slapback delay to give the solo more of a spacey texture. The ending is the same as the beginning...Jimmy uses the neck pickup and a lower volume.
  18. The mock-up concert footage was filmed at Shepperton Studios in Surrey, England in August of 1974. The backstage shots of Peter Grant belittling the vendor were filmed backstage at the Baltimore Civic Center on the 23rd.
  19. The acoustic set from Seattle, June 19th, 1972 is definitely one of my favorties. The mostly complete version of Black Country Woman is fantastic. But I have to say, The Battle of Evermore was an absolutely epic song live.
  20. Wow, this is a really tough choice to make. But, I think I'm going to have to go with Dazed And Confused. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the solos Jimmy pulled off in No Quarter. In fact, his solo from the TSRTS version is one of my favorite Jimmy solos. But, to me, the drastic dynamics and hard-hitting jams during Dazed And Confused are pure musical genius. I get chills when they start jamming on The Crunge during D&C on How The West Was Won.
  21. The album featured on set is Physical Graffiti. I noticed it right off the bat.
  22. Haha! All I download are free apps. I'm pinching those pennies pretty hard these days. But, I'm sorry for hijacking your thread. Back to the topic... I was not there at the show, unfortunately. But if I had a time machine, you bet your knickers that I'd be there in a heartbeat.
