Chapter 9: Using “B.B.’s box,” unison bends and chromatically ascending repetition licks

This chapter looks at Page’s signature use of the hybrid blues-scale/major-pentatonic “box” shape often referred to as “B.B.’s box,” in reference to the way it was pioneered in the 1950s and Sixties by the great and highly influential blues guitarist B.B. King. Numerous examples are offered in the keys of A and E and demonstrate some of the many creative ways Page has used this shape in conjunction with bends, especially “overbends,” to create soulful, memorable lead licks in songs like “Whole Lotta Love,” “You Shook Me” and “Black Dog.” Also covered are Page’s signature use of unison bends to craft memorable, standout licks and melodies in such songs as “Stairway to Heaven,” “Communication Breakdown” and “Dazed and Confused,” as well as his use of chromatically ascending repetition licks in songs like “Rock and Roll.”
