LED ZEPPELIN
In The Evening

Thanks to Charles Eric Horowitz for original post.

This is the main riff. This version can be played without
the vibrato bar and is easier to play :-)

^^^If you listen to the record this really is with bar,
but sound better than Charles' original version.
Do whatever you wish.




In the Evening by Led Zeppelin


The intro thing is just a droning synthesizer and Jimmy playing the open
E-string with a bow. The overdub is called(I think) a rotovibe which
is a little spinning wheel which when you touch it to the string,
produces that rolling sound.

The main riff is double-tracked and with a little adlibbing is basically:
by the way this is with a strat, or something with a whammy bar:

e-----------------------------------------------------------------------
b---5--5-5--3--3--2\\0//2\\0-------------5-5-5-3-3--2\\0//2-------------
g---4--4-4--2--0--2\\0//2\\0-------------4-4-4-2-0--2\\0//2-------------
d---2--2-2--0--0--2\\0//2\\0----2-5-2----2-2-2-0-0--2\\0//2-------------
a-----------------------------------------------------------------------
E-0-----------------------------------0---------------------------------
^^^Thats a bend down on the whammy bar

The first chorus has something like this:

e---------5--------------------------------------------------------------
b--7--7---5--7---------7--7/8-7----------------5--7-----------7/8--7-----
g--7--7---6--7------7--7--7/9-7---7-7/9-7--7---6--7--------7--7/9--7-----
d--7--7---7--7------7-------------7-7/9-7--7---7--7----7/9-7-------------
a--5--5---7--5--9-9-------------9---------9----7--5--9-------------------
E---------5--------------------------------------------------------------

e--------------------------------------------------------------------------

d----7/9-7---7--7--7----------------7/9-7------7--7------------------------
a--9-------9----7--5----9---------9------------7--5------------------------
E---------------5------------------------------5---------------------------


The second and fourth choruses go with this chord sequence:

e---3--3---------3--3---3-------5--5---5--5--------------------------------
b---3--3--7------3--3---3----9--5--5---5--5--9-----------------------------
g---4--4--7------4--4---4----9--6--6---6--6--9-----------------------------
d---5--5--7------5--5---5----9--7--7---7--7--9------4-4-4------------------
a---5--5--5------5--5---5----7--7--7---7--7--7--7---2-2-2------------------
E---3--3---------3--3---3-------5--5---5--5-----5--------------------------

The fourth chorus has this backing line:

e-------------------7\\6//7------------------------7\\6//7--------------
b---------8-----8---8\\7//8--------------8---8-10--8\\7//8--------------
g-------7---7-7------------------------7---7----------------------------
d--9-9-----------------------------9-9----------------------------------
a-----------------------------------------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------

e----------------------9\\\8//9--------------------9--11-11-11-11-------

g--------9----9-------------------------9-----9-------------------------
d-11-11---------------------------11-11---------------------------------
a-----------------------------------------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The chorus before the solo goes like this:

e-----------------------------------------------------------------------
b---7-7-----7-7--------------------7----------7/8--7----------------7---
g---7-7-----7-7----------------6---7-----7-7--7/9--7----7--------6--7---
d---7-7-----7-7--------9-7-----7---7-----7-7------------7-7---7--7--7---

a--9----------------9-------9----7--5---------9-------9-----7-5---------
E--------------------------------5--------------------------5-----------

The solo is something like this:
The starting thing is Jimmy holding down the Whammy Bar as hard as he can
and forcefully picking out a E-Chord and letting up on the bar:

e-------0----12----------------12-------------------12---------------12--
b------0--------14----------12----15~------------12----15~---------12----
g-----1---14------14--14^16----------------14^16-------------14^16-------
d----2-------------------------------------------------------------------
a---2--------------------------------------------------------------------
E--0---------------------------------------------------------------------
Repeat this^^^^^^^^^^^ 5 times
pretty quickly
