This is my favorite solo of all time. There seem to be about 3 guitars in there. Two soloing in harmony and a tele doing rythem.

I think I might hear a phaser and a vibe. What do you hear?

Its right at 3:44

I thing phase and a lot of reverb and some pretty heavy EQing to give each guitar its own space.

Maybe his Danelectro and phaser. It has that sitar vibe that would come from a wooden flat bridge on his dano just a guess

The double tracking adds a lot to that sound too.

Might not be effected that much at all.
That was my take, too. I can hear another guitar part (not the solos, but some chords), particularly towards the end of the solo, that has what sounds like phase-shifting...but the two harmony guitars on the solo? Doesn't sound like much of any effects on them.

I agree. It's hard to tell, but I don't hear any modulation at all. All I hear is the double tracking.

I am sure I hear one of the guitars have a Leslie sound to it. You can hear it at the end of the line just before the last phrase. Right at 3:58 & 3:59

I agree that layering guitars adds to the sound, but there is some serious effects in that passage.

The solo is guitar layered with sitar. Rhythm guitar on the left is probably going through a Leslie cab. It also shows up layered into the right side of the track later in the passage. Main rhythm guitar on the right sounds pretty thin, maybe even going direct to board. I don't hear any "effects" other than reverb. Page was a master at room micing and mic placement to get a certain vibe for the track.

Also, Page often didn't use any amps in the studio when he layered guitar sounds. The entire song "Black Dog" and some parts in "Kashmir" were recorded using no amps at all.

Maybe both tracks of the harmony phased together at the board? (Subgrouped)

Doesn't sound like two separate Phase 90 tracks.

I believe it was around the time of DVD and How the West Was Won that Page mentioned that he had recently returned to John Paul Jones the Strat that he had used on Ten Years Gone. Hard to know with Page and all the obvious layers on this tune but I can see where a lot of it could definitely be a Strat.

Other way around -- JPJ gave back the Strat to Page.

When I read your thread title in the list of messages, the first thing that popped into my head was the "Ten Years Gone" solo. I open up the thread, and lo and behold, it's about the the "Ten Years Gone" solo.

I always figured the effect it was some kind of phaser or vibe.

By the way, this is also one of my favorite guitar solos and I usually mention it in "favorite guitar solos" threads.
