This guitar solo for Stairway to Heaven performed by Jimmy Page on the Zeppelin live album The Song Remains the Same has always been one of my most favored guitar pieces. I have studied and practiced this solo with many hours of dedication. I recorded the multi-track background using a bass guitar, drum loop samples, and electronic keyboards. I carefully mix these tracks to have the effect of a full band behind me while performing the solo. The microphone is placed in front of the stereo speakers and amplifier to simultaneously record all the audio. The microphone jack is adapted to fit the video cameras input for direct audio signal. Theres a lot more time and work involved but its better than playing over the actual recording of a song. On this video Im using my home built guitar which I finished in late summer 2009.
