  1. Id post one of myself here but I cant figure out how. Any help??
  2. Im going to see Robert Plant and Alison Krauss on july 18th but two days ago I saw Kansas for free. I didnt like the Kansas show the guitar was turned down so low you could hardly hear it, i didnt know they played so much violin in their songs (I never got into Kansas.) After Plant/Krauss I hope to see Perpetual Groove and a local group called Kelly Ray Davis and the Money Makers, they are really good.
  3. I was just wondering if there are there any other folk music fans out there. I am from West Virginia so folk music is everywhere. I play the electric guitar mainly, but I also picked up the acoustic guitar, banjo, harmonica, and mandolin. When im not playing rock in a band, I play gigs doin solo folk rock stuff because there are so many places to get on a stage and play folk music here in the Appalachain Mountians. Robert Plant said "We are trying to communicate a fulfilled ideal...I am a reflection of what I sing. Sometimes I have to get serious because the things I've been through are serious...The way I see it, rock n' roll is folk music." Zep songs like The Battle of Evermore are cool because they are pretty much folk rock, but they are being played but the greatest "hard rock" band of all time.
  4. Try not to get stuck on trying to match other guitars sound all the time. It took me awhile to get out of that phase, but now I love trying to find new sounds I can make with my guitar. Another tip I wish I would have had back when I started is to try to start making your own stuff as soon as you start learning the guitar. This will help you develop your own signature sound too. But as far as getting Jimmy's tone he goes through so many different sonic levels its hard to pin point just one... he hardly ever played a song the same way twice.
  5. I just finished reading Hammer Of The Gods the books by Stephen Davis about Led Zeppelin and it was great. I first read his book about Jim Morrison and it was great too so i decided to pick up HOTG. I wondering if anyone else on here read it and if you thought it was good and if it was accurate. I am only 19 so between your guys stories and what i have read is the only thing i know about Zep since I wanst there in the time they call the 70s. I wish I would have been...
