It Might Get Loud

I have finally got around to buying the “It Might Get Loud” DVD. This features The Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White telling the story of the electric guitar from their own unique points of view. There is some interesting stuff on the DVD including some fantastic guitar playing both with the guys together and via archive footage.

The main part of the DVD is set in a warehouse type building with some armchairs in the centre. The amount of guitars, amps and effects that these three guys can bring togeather is amazing!

One of the things that caught my interest was the fact that some of the guitars played by White were of very low quality. His main stage instrument with the White Stripes is a plastic bodied mail order catalogue “own brand” very cheap guitar! If he can make a career with that then there is hope yet for me and my Chinese made Squire Strat!
