Whole Lotta Love is not only Led Zeppelin’s first hit single in the US, it is also consistently rated one of the greatest guitar tracks of all-time by virtually every major music outlet.
The main reason for that success is Jimmy Page’s driving riff that not only opens the song, but continues throughout a large part of the song.
As iconic as this riff is, it is actually quite easy to play.
In this Whole Lotta Love guitar lesson video I will show you what is going on in this riff for both hands.
If you are just starting to learn to play the guitar you will have some good things to practice here including chord muting and alternate picking.
However, the alternate picking required for this riff doesn’t involve any synchronization with the fret-hand (just picking on one open string) so it is still pretty easy to play.
So I hope you enjoy this short but sweet guitar lesson on a riff that inspired millions of people to learn to play the guitar. 🙂
