My vocation is more in composition really than anything else -- building up harmonies using the guitar, orchestrating the guitar like an army, a guitar army.More Jimmy Page [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I always believed in the music we did and that's why it was uncompromising.More Jimmy Page [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

I'm pretty optimistic about the future of rock... it will be back to composition as in classical music or jazz.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm just looking for an angel with a broken wing.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Let me explain something about guitar playing. Everyone's got their own character, and that's the thing that's amazed me about guitar playing since the day I first picked it up. Everyone's approach to what can come out of six strings is different from another person, but it's all valid.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I believe every guitar player inherently has something unique about their playing. They just have to identify what makes them different and develop it.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Almost the moment he died, they put him in Playboy as one of the greatest drummers, which he was - there's no doubt about it. There's never been anybody since. He's one of the greatest drummers that ever lived.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every musician wants to do something which will hold up for a long time, and I guess we did it with 'Stairway to Heaven.'More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I think it was that we were really seasoned musicians. We had serious roots that spanned different cultures, obviously the blues.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Right from the first time we went to America in 1968, Led Zeppelin was a word-of-mouth thing. You can't really compare it to how it is today.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There's a very old recording maxim that goes, 'Distance makes depth.' I've used that a hell of a lot-whether it's tracking guitars or the whole band. People are used to close-miking amps, but I'd have a mic out around the back, as well, and then balance the two. Also, you shouldn't have to use EQ in the studio if the instruments sound right. You should be able to get the right tones simply with the science of microphone placement.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My vocation is more in composition really than anything else-building up harmonies using the guitar, orchestrating the guitar like an army, a guitar army. ... I always felt if we were going in to do an album, there should already be a lot of structure already made up so we could get on with that and see what else happened. ... I always believed in the music we did and that's why it was uncompromising. ... I don't think the critics could understand what we were doing.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You can't overthink the music. Mood and intensity can't be manufactured. The blues isn't about structure; it's what you bring to it. The spontaneity of capturing a speciļ¬c moment is what drives it.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The idea of a hypnotic riff as the prime mover of a piece of music has been around for a long time, whether you're talking about the Delta blues or music from Middle Eastern and African cultures.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Artists say that paintings are never done. I sort of feel the same way about music. I would never say something is perfect. There are performances that can generate a lot of emotion in me when I hear them, but I can't say if anything is perfect.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I played guitar all my life, all the way through the Yardbirds, but I knew that for me this was going to be a guitar vehicle, because that's what I wanted it to be.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is no way I would play guitar like a tour de force like I did in Led Zeppelin. John Bonham, phenomenal drummer, young man with his technique, but do you think he would ever have the opportunity to play like that in another band? Of course he hadn't.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The gut-strung guitar, the classical guitar, that is a whole different world on its own. When you think what the guitar can do and what every individual player does with a guitar, everyone has their own identity coming through the guitar.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There's so much that can be done on the guitar. And that's what is so good about the guitar - everyone can really enjoy themselves on it and have a good time, which is what it's all about.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The guitar to me, from the classical/gut-string guitar right through to Hendrix, et cetera, has all the range [of sound]. Within those six strings it is incredible what one can get sound-wise. It's just down to imagination, really.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
From the classical guitar right through to the furthest electrical experiments and everything in-between, it's amazing what the guitar can actually do. I mean, when one thinks about sounds.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is far more sensitivity in acoustic guitar players than could ever be compared to any synthesizer. That's a personal point of view but that's the way I see it. I think that's what it's all about. The drive, the fire, the passion - it all comes out on the guitar.More Jimmy Page [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
