EXAMPLE3 RIFF 3 - SInglE-notE RIFFIng
cd track 17
Backtracking a few years, this type of single-note riff has stayed synonymous with both Jimmy and Zeppelin. All the little details like quarter-tone bends a3nd staccato hits add up to make the whole. it’s double tracked – something Jimmy didn’t routinely do like many subsequent rock bands, but it made an occasional appearance. it’s not the kind of detail to be missed live – if anything, it’s an attempt to capture the power and depth of a live performance.
