Lesson notes

In 1970 Led Zeppelin III was released, which included quite a few acoustic songs. Bron-Yr-Aur didn’t make the cut at the time and was held back for 5 years until they needed some ‘filler’ for Physical Graffiti. This Jimmy Page masterpiece has fascinated guitarists since then.

It is played in an unusual C6 Tuning (C-A-C-G-C-E) and uses mostly arpeggio patterns, much like Babe I’m Gonna Leave You. The lesson covers all the parts, including one only found in an early live recording, and includes some advanced left hand fingering techniques in order to get the best sustain on all the notes. It is not really too difficult except for getting it up to speed. I really encourage students to work on it slowly and pay a lot of attention to the tone of every note.
