Hi All
Last weekend I took the opportunity to re-watch the Knebworth concert. Especially “Since I’ve Been Loving You”. This being a personal favourite. I don’t want to discuss how bad or how incoherent this version was. I was amazed as to how different Jimmy played the solo. The original album version was, to my ears, a typical I,IV,V pentatonic type solo of its day. Knebworth however, seems to have a very different approach to the I and the IV changes.
Can anyone musically describe what is happening here?
(I don’t have any of the”80 Over Europe” live recordings compare with)
Thanks Hayden

Hayden, beyond discussing how piss poor this solo is, there's zero left to discuss.... Who cares what Page's approach was? It didn't work in this particular instance.

SIBLY solos are based around the full C minor scale (heptatonic) with some "grace" notes, to be polite. Memorize the fretboard in C minor, then hover around the primary notes of the chord changes (for instance kick off licks starting on an F or Ab when it goes to iv chord, G or Bb on v chord, etc). 1/4-note bends are also your friend (you'll hear where) :dude:
