Song-Ending Solo

Here’s my nominee.

Anyone not completely blown away the first time you heard this as a kid? Made me wanna jump out of my pants.

It’s a really odd rock song (if this copies something else I’m not aware of, please do tell) and one of the oddities is there’s no solo until the very end. The guitar is all riff and thump up to that point.

And what a solo it is – herky-jerky as hell and packed full of what has become cliche Page solo material. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

One thought on “Song-Ending Solo

  1. Yeah, one of his best. I can’t think of anything it even faintly resembles, unusual in a riff song. I hadn’t heard this song in a long time but I remember every note. Which says something about “indelible.”
