It Might Get Loud

Postby Indyrod on Mon May 03, 2010 7:56 pm

If you get the chance to watch this documentary, with Jimmy Page, Jack White, and The Edge, but all means don't pass it up. It's pretty much a historial romp through the electric guitar from the point of view of those exceptional artists. Some great video clips all through it from all three artists, and a decent jam session at the end on "The Weight", and a couple of Zeppelin songs. Hearing Jimmy Page and The Edge especially talking about their techniques and how they came about is very informative and entertaining. Jack White is also a very interesting musician and his story and inspirations is great stuff. I saw it yesterday on the STARZ cable channel, but it's also available in DVD format. Just listening to them trade stories, is a very entertaining 98 minutes.

Looks very interesting. Hope BBC or a dutch channel will air this on TV. Quit a lot of clips from this documentary on youtube. Also 3 delete scenes. One of the Edge soundchecking his rig, funny to see that all kinds of songs are programmed in his rig.

That's what I thought was most interesting, was THE EDGE talking about, how many of the guitar sounds people here at concerts, are not even coming from his guitar. And Jimmy Page talking about what prompted him to start using the double neck guitar is also great stuff, along with his childhoold and what got him into music. Jack White talking about his main early influence being "Son House", and his favorite song of all time being Son House's "Grinnin In Your Face" is something pretty eye opening, at least to me. Mainly, because I had never heard of Son House. Three extaordinary musicians to say the least.

I saw it the day it came out here and I was given the DVD as a birthday present. I have to watch the DVD as it has outtakes. It is a really great film. Fripp ought to do something similar. Maybe with G3.
