performance - how to play "Bron-Yr-Aur" on acoustic guitar by Led Zeppelin - tutorial lesson

Published on 26 January 2016
Facebook: Link to the lesson: An acoustic guitar lesson on how to play "Bron-Yr-Aur” by Led Zeppelin, played by Jimmy Page. It's from the "Physical Graffiti" album released in 1975. This is such a beautiful song! It’s probably a bit harder and at the same time maybe a bit easier than you might think…I know that’s contradictory, but when you start to learn it I think you’ll see what I mean. Who knows how Jimmy Page came up with this stuff, he really is an amazing writer. Once you get it down, you won’t want to stop playing it! Most of you probably already know this, but Bron-Yr-Aur is the name of a cottage in Wales where Jimmy and Robert Plant spent some time unwinding and writing after a long tour. You can read about it here: Anyways, it’s where he came up with this song and I think it really reflects the beauty of his surroundings at the time… I had a lot of fun learning the song and recording the demo. I hope you enjoy the video and playing this great tune. I get a lot of questions about my sound so here's what I'm using: The guitar I'm playing here is a Taylor 214ce koa deluxe. I really like this guitar, it intonates amazingly well and it's tone is very balanced. It's also very easy to play. The strings are Elixir phosphor bronze 12-53 with nanoweb coating. These strings are a little bit more expensive, but for me they easily last 4-5 times longer than non-coated strings. Folks may be surprised at how much time and effort goes into creating these videos. If you're getting something out of the lessons and can afford to contribute, I've setup a Paypal link.
