I recently saw the movie "It Might Get Loud" featuring Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), The Edge (U2) and Jack White (White Stripes/The Raconteurs). In the movie Jimmy Page digs through his mammoth vinyl collection and plays some favorite songs, one of which was Link Wray's "Rumble". This song was also famously featured in "Pulp Fiction". It is a classic instrumental and a real easy song, ... View Lesson

Back in 1980, I bought my very first record album from Tower Records (remember them?) in San Francisco. It was "Blizzard Of Ozz" by Ozzy Osbourne. I don't really know why I bought that album. The cover kind of freaked me out and I don't think I even knew who Black Sabbath was at the time. Regardless of my sheltered childhood I fortunately purchased one ... View Lesson

Korean guitarist 'funtwo' performes the arrangement of "Canon Rock" by Taiwanese guitarist JerryC, a rocking take off of classical standard "Pachelbel's Canon in D".

If you like this lesson and want to dig in on this song or Led Zeppelin in general, consider ... View Lesson

The tabs are in the video (full and 1/2 speed, how cool!) but here they are for your off-video practice.
