Hey.

(LIFE STORY)
Got a bit of a problem, for VCE (year 11,12) I've chosen to do Music Performance, i'm really only good at the performance not the theory but hey. This isn't entirely theory what i'm asking but it's just stuff I really don't understand what she's asking.

(PROBLEM)
I have to choose a song then answer guidelines on it.
That song is "Black Dog- Led Zeppelin"
It's a short essay and one of the guidelines says.

"What kind of research I should do about styles, composers, influences and other performers interpretations before I start my own interpretation."

Now I really have no idea at all in english what that means.
So if anyone can help out, it'd be much appreciated.

Cheers.

EDIT: Also I wasn't entirely sure on which forum to put this in, so if theres a forum to put it in, go ahead.
sincewhen??

Sounds pretty obvious to me, style is probably genre, composer Led Zeppelin or some members of them, and other performens interpretations is probably people who have covered it and how they changed it to fit their style. Make sure to include the weird timing used in the drum and/or guitar part.

The way I understand it is that they want you to research the song/the band/etc before you play it. Is that correct?

I also assume your playing it on guitar?

Write some stuff about Pages guitar style and his influences , any effects/etc used on the recording and anyone whose covered its guitar style (not that I know that anyone has covered Black Dog). This then gives you a greater insight into how you could colour the song when you perform it.
