Hey Hey What Can I do - WHICH parts are Zither?

Recommended Posts

on "hey hey what can I do" - I'm trying to discern which parts are Jonesy on Mandolin and which parts are Page on the Zither

Is Jones doing the chords that kinda mimic the acoustic guitar? while Page is doing the "Lead Line" ?

So the riffs at 26 seconds in and 33 seconds for example are Page?

If anyone repsonds, please feel free to send link to your source..

Hello Roy,welcome to the forum! Details are lacking on this song,perhaps my favorite and the B-side of a rare Zeppelin single or on the album: 'New Age of Atlantic.'

As far as a Zither,maybe the only time played this? Our expects can chime in soon,...

I see the credit for "zither" plastered all over the 'net, but absolutely no source or citation info.

I don't hear a distinct zither -- is it possible that Jimmy doubled his acoustic playing on a zither?

I've never heard that there is a zither being played on HHWCID. What's your source?

Wikipedia

So I guess those lead notes are JPJ on Mandolin?

So if Wikipedia says there is Zither on HHWCID.......there probably isn't.......

If I had a nickel for every time Wikipedia has been wrong...

I've listened to this song a zillion times and have never heard a zither. Acoustic guitars and mandolins and bass are all the string instruments I hear.

It sounds like a 12 string guitar to me.

On Black Country Woman, there is a mandolin blended in the background, it's intermittent and textured playing. I think that's jpj, as it's so similar to what he's playin these days. I only noticed it on the box set 2 cd, not on vinyl or original 80s cds.
