Gretchen Menn Decodes Led Zeppelin’s “When the Levee Breaks”

As Guardians of Guitar announced exclusively on February 11, the Zepparella crew launched a truly unique and awesomely kick-ass Zepparella Learning Channel that will break down the music of Led Zeppelin with each member of the band—drummer Clementine, guitarist Gretchen Menn, bassist Holly West, and vocalist/harmonica player Anna Kristina—providing tutorials for their specific instrument.

As Zepparella is one of the preeminent Led Zeppelin tribute bands, fellow Guardian Menn has been immersed in the stylings of Jimmy Page for years now, and, even though she is part of the Guardians Family, we still wouldn’t trust many people past Page himself to teach the intricacies and bombast of his guitar arrangements and textures.

So please check out Gretchen’s first lesson series on the guitarcraft for “When the Levee Breaks.”

Here’s Part One!

And Here’s Part Two!

And, finally, Part Three! The Entire Lesson is now here for you!
