This is a repost. Actually I can admit I was having a hard time putting up an Mpeg file of Dee Curtis blues and got fed up.
If anyone knows how to transfer an Mpeg file over to blogger just chime in here.
Damn technology I don't understand. Takin' those remedial courses in high school sure helped.
Anyway,here's the piece on good old Jimmy.
Jimmy Page, he studied record albums like other great players of the late 50's and 60's. I wish today's musicians would actually buy, study and play along with old record albums. Currently, I'm reading a book on Jimmy done by Guitar World Editor-In Chief Brad Tolinski. Brad has had the great opportunity to interview Jimmy at length many times including this book called: "Light And Shade" Conversations: With Jimmy Page.
You'll learn a lot from the book, and hopefully some tips on producing from Jimmy as well. He did production work with other bands and I'm hoping Brad asks him some questions on that, that your band can use in the studio, and for playing live onstage.
I'll have regular reports on the book in the coming weeks, and give you little tidbits of info from Jimmy that can be of use to many players.
