During DWC STRAIN’s cover of Led Zeppelin’s epic “Whole Lotta Love” last week at Gas Monkey Bar & Grill I used my new Dean Thoroughbred guitar, two different tap delay pedals simotaniously, my Dunlop Crybaby Jimmy Hendrix Wah Wah pedal, and a small glass slide worn on my pinky finger to recreate Jimmy Page’s theremin sections of the song.  It worked very well in my opinion as a credible option of recreating those famous sections without having to purchase, transport, and set up another instrument and more gear for each show.

When we do “Whole Lotta Love”, which is almost every show, the middle sections of the song (the big trippy sections where the theremin squeals and vocal screams and sexual moans etc are) has been becoming a musical playground for us. It has taken on a formlessness that has opened some sonic doors for us as musicians allowing us to morph into different sequences of other songs akin to what Page, Plant, Jones & Bonham were doing during their live shows –  which is morph into a few other sectiong s of songs before cleverly musically morphing back into the main section of WHole Lotta Love!  We’ve been blending “How Many More Times” as well as some old rock standard riffs similar to what Zeppelin  was doing live in the 1970’s during the now infamous “Song Remains The Same” live shows and soundtracks.

Catch my band DWC STRAIN live at Gas Monkey  (217 Duval Street, Key West,  FL 33040 next to Irish Kevin’s)  most Thursdays Fridays and Saturdays 7:00pm to 11:00pm

I’m VERY excited about tonight’s show!! Hopefully we will get a chance to play and jam a few new songs tonight.  My favorite musical project this week has been figuring out Jimmy Page’s solos for The Ocean  which is one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs.

Last week Carter broke into some Johnny Cash and that was very very cool! Then at one point we broke into some FUNK classics right in the middle of Joe Walsh’s FUNK #49.  I hope we do that again at tonight’s show.

Besides Led Zeppelin, some of my favorite music is our Pink Floyd sets.  I love trying to get Richard Wright’s keyboard lines on my glass or chrome slide.  And of course trying to squeeze the tone out of my guitar like David Gilmore is always fun and rewarding as a musician and constant student.
