Wayne Sorbelli here at my Island Guitar Key West Music Lesson & Video Studio. I’m getting ready and running through rough drafts of Led Zeppelin’s EPIC Moby Dick for a lesson request a student requested of me (and pre-paid thank you very VERY much)
I’m doing the main riff using a pick and no slide. I do incorporate the glass picky slide during the drum solo part where normally there is no guitar – making it more like an episode of Whole Lotta Love’s orgasmic middle section and interlude – however I was picturing fishing and hooking on to a Moby Dick type whale where through my playing I was trying to relay my feelings of battling the big one – relating it to my family’s battles and struggles with my little joys blood cancer at the moment. We are fighting things of giant proportions and we love fishing. – so my song about fishing is about catching Moby Dick !! It’s all tensions and release. It’s all the blues in my playing – no matter how rock I try to get lol
I pulled out my old Gibson USA Les Paul 1994 Custom guitar just to get reacquainted lol
I’m playing through a solid state Roland Micro Cube on the Brit Combo amp setting with very little delay on for when I was picking – then cut the delay back to zero but kept the gain on ten for the middle slide trippy part.
Any questions feel free to contact me. Most of the amps and gear I use for videos are for sale. Jsyk.

I play the blues so that I may not have to live them to the full degree! It puts everything back in balance for me!
In this video I’m sliding & fingering all over a cover of Freddie King’s Big Legged Woman in a SHORT SHORT mini skirt.
I’m playing my newly acquired Gibson USA SG with three Blade pickups and a 6 way control switch through a small 16watt tube amp. Using a Dunlop 202 slide on my pinky. Fingers as weapons – NO POICKS 😃

Here is a small video clip I made specifically for a student of mine of Led Zeppelin’s “Bring It On Home'” Guitar Lesson @ Island Guitar Music Lesson Studio Key West & ONLINE.
Although you don’t have the notes leading up to this video as does my student, I hope you still find it a useful example of my style of teaching. Please ask me questions. I answer as I can.
