War Pigs - Led Zeppelin/Traveling Riverside Blues

Yes,

Your eyes ain't fooling you, this is a clip of Zep's Traveling Riverside Blues played through a set of War Pigs in my ol' Yamaha SG1000.

Main Rythm is Both Pickups (middle switch position) and every knob on the guitar on 10 into a Plexi Model of my Vox Tonelab and a Treble Booster added.
In retrospect, I used too much gain, so shame on me.
Someting knocked me off on the main theme of the song, probably some car alarm going off, damn cities.

The solo is played on the bridge pickup, again into the tonelab and with an overdrive.
It's completely improvised and I've only been playing for two years, so bear with me.
Sloppy like Page ;)

I think this show the 'Pigs are what you make them to be. They can get really clean and more Zeppelin sounding, but like I said, me and my stupid head used too much gain.

LOVE IT! PDT_010

Great slide playing too. I always said the Warpig can sound very bluesy, you delivered the proof.

Blues from hell! :twisted:

Just a tab too much gain....  But still loads of clarity, bite and most of all TONE!

Nice vibrato too :D

Andy!
GREAT GOOGILY MOOGILY!
