Led Zeppelin - Whole Lotta Love - on dulcimer
Classic Zeppelin "Whole Lotta Love" played on 3-string electric mountain dulcimer by Sam Edelston.
The dulcimer can be a very sweet, tender instrument -- but it's also
great for rocking out. Tuned 1-5-8, it's loaded with power chords. Through a stack of Marshalls ... hmmm ... that would be fun!
Instrumental break at about 1:29. Third verse at 1:52. Beginning of the ending at 2:28.
If you enjoyed this and want to hear more, my latest is Blondie's "Call Me" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_DoRUQVvD4
If you want something non-electric and unique, try "Please. Please Me" at http://youtu.be/lULTeYj-pCU?t=57s ... and be sure to catch the last verse.

Technical details: Robert Force model "Black Wolf" hollow-body electric dulcimer built by Rod Matheson, tuned DAd. (Yes, all that sound is coming from just 3 strings.) Capo on the first fret, played in Am.
Dulcimer players: This arrangement doesn't require extra frets. I've got a single high C at 8+, in the break, which could be replaced or played elsewhere .
One pickup is running through an octave pedal, overdrive, and chorus. The second pickup is running through a phase shifter, compressor-sustainer, and Blues Driver distortion pedal. The two channels merge in a digital delay, and there's a volume pedal at the end.
