Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin | rhythm and solo
An electric guitar lesson on how to play the rhythm guitar parts to "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin.
This is the first song on Led Zeppelin II, which was released on October 22, 1969.
Today, the song is bigger than ever. Learning this is like a right of passage for rock guitar players.
Although simple in nature, it's not easy to get just the right feel on the rhythm.
So many guys play this wrong, there's a trick on the open D string that almost everyone misses, but it's what gives it it's signature sound.
I go over that in depth in the rhythm lesson.
The second video is the guitar solo played by the incomparable Jimmy Page. This solo influenced a generation.
Maybe the six most important licks ever played in rock music. Learning this is a must for all rock guitar players.
He gets that nasty treble tone by using a wah pedal fully depressed, this is a trick used by a lot of guitarists back in the day including Carlos Santana and Neal Schon.
No one will EVER replicate Jimmy Page's exact feel, vibrato or attack on this classic solo, but this lesson will teach you the notes and give you a good base to work from.
I hope that you get something from the videos and have fun playing this classic Zep tune. Cheers
