What do you guys think? I want to hear your honest opinion.
not bad but I would recommend not starting a video with you bending over in front of the camera...
Second post in six years! You've clearly spent your time playing, and not mucking around on forums.
I think it was excellent. Great mannerisms. It was excellent. Really excellent. Thanks for posting.
it's weird, seeing the blend of JP but hearing what is close to Plant (def not easy)
need another visual for the Plant part, some separation
everybody tries to recreate MSG '73
You play in a tribute band ?
I like the way there are Page AND Plant mannerisms as you perform. For those that have watched enough Led Zeppelin videos, you can see the styles come through.
Jimmy Page has got to be jealous of you. If he could sing Zeppelin songs, he'd be on the road selling out stadiums. But he needs Plant. You don't. Nice work.
I think you've got two perfectly good legs there doing absolutely nothing. You could at least kick those drums in the style of John Bonham. I don't know how you work John Paul Jones into it, but no one knew he was there anyway half the time. If you did SIBLY you could maybe headbutt a piano or poke it with you wang while you sing?
Is that a wig?
I like your playing more than singing, but hell, I can't sing even 1/10 like that!
Can we see close-ups of your conversion and hear the story behind it?!
Thank you guys!!
And no, it's not a wig（≧∇≦）
This is my '53 conversion.
At the very first time I met her, the sound of hers wasn't that good as she is right now. I had her refretted, reinstalled the ABR-1, the tailpiece, and the pickups, and here she is!!
With my 1974 Marshall 1959
And that guitar is a beauty
Yes, really cool guitar! Seems it did have a Bigsby once.
Yeah - good stuff! Can we see some more pics of your conversion?
Hey, aren't you playing your Les Paul a little lower than Page? I didn't know that was possible!
Very cool brother, takes talent and balls to play Jimmy and sing like Plant at the same time! Not to mention, posting it on a public forum for criticism. You're the Man!!
I keep waiting for Simon Cowell
You clearly have talent im getting the feeling you need to choose 1 of the 2 either, singing or guitar playing.
When doing both i get the feeling we are not getting 100% of either one.
I see your in Japan (I Think) that's a plus for you ....you would have a much harder time selling this in the states.
It's always hard to watch somebody trying to do Jimmy Page.. His movement if not executed perfectly can look foolish on the performer
trying to emulate him. And almost embarrassing for the person watching. If your gonna try to do this as an act I think you need to polish the act a little more, If it's just for fun Great job man!! Peace...
i really enjoy how you enjoy and feel it! that´s all about music. great playing to. keep rockin
Large, aluminum balls you have. You rock brother!
Thank you so much for your encouraging words. Thanks to all of you guys.
Honestly speaking, It was kind of scary posting my video in public, but hey, I realized that I could learn a lot of things not only from compliments but from criticism, too!
I really really appreciate all the comments. Thank you all SO much.
Just for the information, I don't play in a tribute band. I do this just for fun.
I do play in a band, but most of the songs we play are our original songs. And believe it or not, although I'm obsessed with Led Zeppelin for decades, I hadn't played any Led Zeppelin songs in a band until last month! I went to this Led Zeppelin tribute event in Tokyo, and that was the first time playing/singing Led Zeppelin songs in front of "real" people. Yes I did have a lot of fun. It was amazing. When I decided to join the event, I was so excited I even made costumes for it lol
'73 MSG Plant costume
'73 MSG Page spacy suit
Note: The guitar in the pic; the guitar I played at the event wasn't the '53 conversion. I brought my Custom Shop Eric Clapton Model. She's not actually EC Model anymore though lol. I had her refinished, top reshaped, and the most of all...RENECKED!!!
Due to the fine Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard and the fine Honduras Mahogany neck, she sounds like 80% '50s（≧∇≦）
The bridge which was once installed was not Bigsby, I suppose. Judging by the repair marks on the bottom and the square spot left from the fading. And no, there are no holes on the top. Neither it was a '53 original trapeze tailpiece that was installed after the refinishing because there is a unique rectangular spot in middle of the bridge and the rear end. It's almost faded away, so it's pretty hard to recognize now. But it was much clearer when I got her three years ago.
I found a pic from 2014. The rectangular spot between the tailpiece and her butt is still noticeable.
