Jimmy Page’s Soloing Strategies

Guitar World piece by Tom Kolb. Speaking of Guitar World, it is one of two magazines I’ve been subscribed to for years now – the other is Playboy – and the sight of the latest issue gets me salivating every time.

Imagine my surprise, back home in Dhaka, Bangladesh, when I spotted a magazine devoted to just guitars. Not in my wildest of dreams would I have conjured up an idea that said “magazine…but all about guitars.”

My first year at Brooklyn College, I stumbled upon the motherlode of guitar magazines bound in hard cover, some dating back to the early 70s. It was as if a portion of heaven had lost its way and settled at Brooklyn College library. You’d believe me if I said I leafed through every single issue on there, wouldn’t you?

This post is also fitting in another first. My first concert in the US was the 1995 Page+Plant concert at MSG, complete with the Egyptian and London Orchestra. What a show! A friend had called me two hours before the show and asked if I’d like to see it. I think I was there before he hung up the phone.

Imagine this song, live at MSG! Mm mm mm!
