The Lemon Song – Led Zeppelin Cover – John Paul Jones’ Classic Electric Bass Guitar Solo

This one bass solo from The Lemon Song off Led Zeppelin’s second album may just be one of the reasons I started playing bass.

When I was a kid this one or two minute bit of the song would send shivers up my spine.  “If only I could play bass like that, my life would be complete.”  Suddenly I realized a few years ago that I can play that kind of stuff.  Not quite like John Paul Jones, but with my own bent and style.  And isn’t that what its all about?  Getting inspired and developing your own style.  All by standing on the shoulders of giants.

Anyway this is a cover of THE classic bass solo of the era and a really good job of it!  Crank up those speakers!…
