The song was recorded live in the studio with very little overdubbing. John Paul Jones played Hammond Organ on the song, using the bass pedals for the bassline. It was the only track from the third album that the band had played live prior to the recording sessions, but was reportedly the hardest to record. One story mentions Jimmy Page taking a break following a series of failed attempts to track the solo. Seemingly unable to get the tone he was craving, he set about a walk around the studio to clear his mind. Sitting outside of the recording area was an unplugged amplifier, which he utilised, and recorded the solo we hear today on the next take. Audio engineer Terry Manning called it "The best rock guitar solo of all time." 4th Edit: Since I’ve Been Loving You is a blues rock song written by John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant. It’s the 4th track on side one of Led Zeppelin III (released October 5, 1970). During a May 1993 interview with Brad Tolinski of Guitar World Jimmy Page said Since I’ve Been Loving You was the hardest to record. GW: "Had you reached a dead end with the blues-based material found on the first two albums?” Page: "No. We always had some blues on our albums. Playing the blues is actually the most challenging thing you can do. It is very hard to play something original. “Since I’ve Been Loving You” is a prime example. That was the only song on the third album that we had played live prior to our sessions, yet it was the hardest to record. We had several tries at that one. The final version is a live take with John Paul Jones playing organ and foot bass pedals at the same time.” Sources: Citizendium and WordPress
