br /> Dr Matthew Warnock said the song Heartbreaker - which appears on Led Zeppelin's second album - demonstrates Page's skill as a guitar player as well as a composer.

Writing for Modern Guitars magazine, he stated that the song's guitar solo, which was performed on a Les Paul, includes notable switches between major and minor tonalities.

Dr Warnock said this shows how Page's musical skills "unintentionally" crept into every aspect of his performances.

"The unaccompanied Heartbreaker solo, is jam packed with a multitude of Page's characteristic improvisational techniques," he commented.

Dr Warnock added that the solo was a late addition to the track that was designed to raise its intensity to another level.

The song was not performed at Led Zeppelin's reunion concern in 2007, although it was staple of the band's live set during the 1970s.

Alternative versions with different improvisations from Page can be heard on various live albums, as well as the film The Song Remains The Same.
