This right here is literally why I play guitar.
Jimmy Page playing his guitar with a violin bow. I don’t know what exactly it was that made me sit up and take notice, but this blew my mind, and made me think of the guitar in ways I had never imagined the guitar before seeing this.
This is live at Earl’s Court on May 24, 1975. Yes, it’s over 30 minutes long. No, that’s not the longest Dazed and Confused has ever gone.
The bow solo starts at 11:33 and ends at 19:00.
Again… this is why I play guitar. This is how I see the guitar.
