Jimmy Page is undoubtedly a virtuoso. The Led Zeppelin guitarist has been perfecting his musicianship for over six decades, from his early days as a London session musician through The Yardbirds, Zeppelin, and countless projects. Page’s solo work is just as tasty, with the guitarist dropping jaws with his incredible technique.

Perhaps one of his most impressive adaptations is a reworking of Chopin’s “Prelude No 4 in E minor, Op 28,” led by Page’s melodic mastery. Enjoy the clip below in celebration of Page’s 80th birthday today, January 9th.

Of course, he’s smoking a cigarette the entire time. What a boss!
