EXAMPLE3 Electric 12-string riff
cd track 16
Jimmy used a Fender Electric XII and a Vox Phantom XII on the early Zep Ex albums. 3 Electric There 12-string was no electric riff 12-string on the studio version N.C. of Stairway To Heaven; the Gibson EDS-1275 was used for live performances only. You can also use guitar modelling software to achieve a similar result if you don’t own a 12-string electric, or just play a regular six-string along with the full mix for a really fat sounding riff.
Don’t be put off by the re-tuning required for a coupl e of the examples; open tunings ar e a gr eat way to shak e off those well worn pat erns
