    So originally my intent was to do Living Loving Maid but as I was warming up I decided to fuck around with this one. I played it once or twice and enjoyed the free form that it offered so I recorded a couple takes. If you want note for note you'll be disappointed and I don't blame you if you don't watch the whole thing but I had fun!

    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I thought that was pretty damn good. A few missteps during the solo but you recovered.
    Hard not to do those faces when you hit those kind of notes.

    I think between the two of us we’ve done almost all of Zeppelin II.

    Good job on this! I liked the off the cuff approach. Fits for Zeppelin and especially this song.

    I still think you need to adjust your intonation, those bass notes just seem a little flat at times.

    Yeah, I've got to figure out something because I messed with tuning it for about 5 minutes beforehand and according to my tuner it was on, and it sounded fine when I was playing, but when I listened back I could hear it was off.

    I probably just need to take it to someone and have it set up, I'm sure it needs it.

    Have you looked to make sure the Floyd is flush to the body?

    No, I haven't.

    I did have some issues with that a while back where it was a millimeter or so above the body and I had to adjust the springs in the back. I'll take a look at it.

    I might re-string it too, I usually only change strings when they break and I'm sure a couple of them on there are pretty old.

    That's the thing about making it up as you go - sometimes it works, and then sometimes you hit a bum note or end up in the wrong key.

    You can stay in the blues box at the 12th fret if you're in E and you're not going to have that problem. But there's only so much you can play there before you start repeating yourself.

    II was my first Zep album and I still think every tune is killer but I find Lemon Song to be entirely underrated.

    I hear ya. That's been my focus this year. How to get out of the box. Learning all the notes on the fretboard and trying to connect them. It's a slow process.
