Watch the Jimmy Page online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone
Jimmy Page is an educated musician and as a result really knows what he is doing. As a result he created some great sounds using the modes and influences from other countries such as India. At his core Page is a blues guitarist much like his friends Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. Page is less traditional in his approach than Clapton for example. When playing blues, he is more inclined to play out of time and "cram" notes together, of course this is on purpose. You can hear him do this on "Since I've Been Loving You" on the Led Zeppelin III record.
