Tom J

Man, I spent countless hours before just trying to decipher tabs and aimlessly trying to nail down Page's solos. But this course? It's a whole new dimension to playing. Leopardi really dives deep into Page's psyche, dissecting his style, and I feel like I've unlocked a whole new realm of playing. It's not just mimicking anymore; it's about creating something that resonates with me.

Mark S

I've sunk my time into quite a lot of guitar lessons in the past, but this course genuinely stands out. Instead of mindlessly copying licks, I'm beginning to think, really think like Page. My solos are more vibrant and fluid, and they've never sounded this good! I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to level up their playing.

 

Lucy N

If you're sick and tired of sounding like just another cover band, this course is your ticket to innovation and originality. I've moved beyond merely playing Page's solos; I'm creating my own, and it's mind-blowing. Each lesson feels like a step forward, pushing me to explore new territories in my playing.

Jeff L

I was a little doubtful at first, to be honest. I thought it'd be tough to break away from my usual playing habits. But this course opened my eyes to an easier and more efficient way. Now, it feels like I've imbued a bit of Page's spirit into my playing, and the result is just awesome.

 

Sophie M

I was skeptical at first, but trust me when I say this is not your typical guitar course. Leopardi takes you deep, way deep into Page's mind. I've started to craft solos that I never even thought I'd be capable of. It's like a rebirth of my musicality.

 

Miguel S

Leopardi's masterclass is not just a course; it's an immersive journey into the soul of Jimmy Page. I feel like I've grown so much as a guitarist since starting. My fingers are not just playing, they're telling stories on the strings. This is the real deal, guys.

What You’ll Find Inside The Course

Part 1: Bending & Vibrato Mini-Course

The course kicks off by walking you through the fundamentals of expression on the guitar - bending and vibrato. Here you’ll discover the mechanics along with the different types of bends and exercises you can follow to quickly get up to speed on this technique. After that, you’ll learn why vibrato is important, and exercises for creating your own personal vibrato.

1: Course Introduction - welcome to the course!

2: Bending Technique - Gabriel demonstrates different bending techniques, along with the mechanics of executing a proper bend and showing different types of bends you can do (half stop, whole stop, overbend, etc.).

3: Bending Exercises - here Gabriel walks you through a series of exercises you can use in your practice routine to nail your bending technique, pull off clean bends in your playing, avoiding things like bending out of tune, bending too fast, etc.

4: Vibrato Technique - moving on to vibrato, Gabriel walks you through different types of vibrato, talks about the vibrato different players have, why vibrato is important (namely that it gives a player their unique personality on the guitar), as well as demonstrating types of vibrato (fast/slow/wide/narrow/etc.).

5: Vibrato Exercises - next a series of exercises that you can add to your own practice routine to get good smooth vibrato that is in time with the music.

6: Final Thoughts - this contains an overview of what you've learned along with suggestions on what to learn next!

Part 2: Legato Mini-Course

In this next section you’ll learn legato fundamentals as well as some killer techniques for erasing unwanted noise. Gabriel will walk you through proper placement, execution, and how to play without wearing yourself out. This part closes out by deep diving into how to mute unwanted noise from untargeted strings.

1: Introduction to Legato - welcome to the course!

2: Left Hand Technique & Concepts - Gabriel walks through some of the building blocks of legato using your left hand, covers things like thumb placement (two different positions depending on what you're trying to do), finger placement (to get clear notes and good speed), minimizing movement and strength (basically you want to move as little as possible and only play as hard as you have to so that you aren't tiring yourself out doing too much), and general legato technique, demonstrating both hammer ons and pull offs, how to execute them cleanly without unwanted noise or too much movement that would cause over exertion or injury. Also covers trills, which are rapid hammer ons and pull offs.

3: Muting Unwanted Noise - one of the big mistakes people make with legato is having a lot of noise coming from the strings they're NOT targeting, so this module walks you through various techniques to ensure the only string ringing out is the one you want to hear, covering both left and right hand muting.

4: Legato Exercises - Next, Gabriel walks you through a series of exercises that you can use in your own practice routine to strengthen your fingers, clean up your playing, and get good clean legato, covering both hammer ons and pull offs, as well as hammering on from nowhere, muting, and other legato hacks!

5: Course Conclusion - here Gabriel gives a recap, ties it all together, and suggests what to learn from here.

Part 3: Double Stops Mini-Course

In this section you’ll learn how to create unique and iconic sounds by playing two notes at the same time. You’ll learn the common double stop notes (Gab teaches it in c minor scale), how to incorporate it into the pentatonic scale, and how to use triads in double stops. The session closes with Gab sharing his best tips to make this complicated system easy to learn.

1: Introduction - welcome to the course!.

2: What is a Double Stop - For those who are new to the idea of double stops, we give you a ground floor explanation and demonstration of this technique.

3: What notes can be used in Double Stops - Double stops can be performed in any scale, but Gabriel walks you through most common double stops - thirds, fourths, fifths and octaves. Gab uses the C minor scale to demonstrate each of the most common ones, played through the whole scale.

4: Incorporating Double Stops with the Pentatonic Scale - double stops are most commonly played using the pentatonic scale, so Gabriel walks you through how you would do this in your playing, basically giving you a practical roadmap for how to easily incorporate double stops in your playing. Then a little minor pentatonic jam plays, demonstrating this technique.

5: Incorporating Double Stops using Triads - Another technique for finding good double stop ideas within a key or within a solo. Triads are three notes, so if you know your triads, you have two choices within each triad (1/2, 1/3). Gab reveals all!

6: Technique Tips For Playing Double Stops - Walking through techniques to embellish your double stops and make them more vibey. Walks through regular picking (downstrokes or alternate picking), hybrid picking (combining picking and fingers), fingerpicking, slides, and legato.

7: Final Thoughts - a review of everything you learned in this section, along with some suggestions on next steps.

Part 4: Page Rhythm Style Course

In this section we go deep into the part of Page's playing that made Led Zeppelin a household name - his incredible rhythm guitar work.

1: Introduction - welcome to the course!

2: Riffmaster - Gab walks through how Page gets inspiration for his legendary riffs. From the scales he draws on for single note riffs, to updating classic rock and roll turn arounds, to adding percussion using palm muting, we give you some unique insights into Page's riffmaster process!

3: Tuning Innovator - While every other rock and blues player was jamming out in E standard, Page took the stage to massive crowds playing in open G, open D, and many other unique tunings. Gab walks you through some of his most used tunings, including how to play chords and write creative licks in these tunings.

4: Sound Architect - Page set the standard for what rock would sound like for generations by combining effects like distortion, delay, wah, phaser, tremolo and more. In this lesson, Gabriel gives some examples of how these sound combined.

5: Final Thoughts - Thanks!

Part 4: Page Masterclass Techniques & Scales

This is where you combine all the techniques you learned to fully unlock Page's style. You’ll learn the scales Page uses, how to switch between them, and the simple techniques that unlock Page's creative fretwork, such as Albert King style bending, his unique vibrato, his horizontal runs and more.

6: Bending (Albert King Style) - Page brought a lot of things to rock from the blues, and one of the techniques that stands out the most is his use of big Albert King style bends. Gabriel shows you what these sound like, and gives you some tips on applying them to your own playing.

7: Vibrato - They say a guitarist's vibrato is like their fingerprint, and Page is no exception! Gab walks through how Page likes to use his vibrato while carrying out wide bends - a classic rock calling card you can touch on when you need it.

8: Horizontal Runs - Page often plays fast ascending runs that move between different positions using slides to create a smooth and fluid sound. Here, Gabriel shows you some examples, as well as giving some tips on how to incorporate this into your own playing.

9: Bending Trick - This one disappeared from the rock lexicon for a few decades before becoming popular again in the last few years. It's one of those simple tricks that doesn't just sound good - it looks good too!
