Check out this new video of Zakk Wylde, the ultimate guitar teacher! When Zakk's guitar student, "Father Phil," just can't get the hang of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven," Zakk clocks him. Who can blame him? It's frustrating!

To celebrate the release of Jimmy Page’s lavish new photo book, Jimmy Page by Jimmy Page, the guitar legend appeared with Chris Cornell, guitarist and singer for Soundgarden, at the Theater at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles for a relaxed question-and-answer session that spanned the entirety of Page’s 50-year career.
We did some great work there, and I was particularly impressed with their wonderful echo and reverb facilities. The only problem was, they also had a rather “colorful” studio monitoring system. While we were mixing, everything sounded huge and the low end sounded especially massive. But when we returned to England and played our work back, the sound was nothing like what we had heard in Los Angeles. It was deflated…a pale echo of what we’d heard in L.A.
Film yourself playing your own version of Jimmy Page's iconic "Good Times Bad Times" guitar solo. Use the studio versions of the solos as your guide, but feel free to put your own spin on the solo of your choice. You might get extra consideration for originality! You can hear both solos via the YouTube players below.
