Led Zeppelin Lyrics



What makes Led Zeppelin tunes so attractive to the ear ? Most will immediately say it's Jimmy

Page's progressive blues riffs. But remove the bass lines from the songs and see just

empty they become. John Paul Jones was the best all-around and technical musician in the

and was probably the only band member to take his music seriously enough not to be completely

plastered during a concert. Lurking back in the shadows of the stage juggling instruments,

Jones kept the ship afloat at the price of being under-appreciated and ultimately abandoned

by the "devious duo."



Tabbed by: BASSteve



Tuning: EADG (fretless bass)



Time signature: 2/4



r = rest (listen for duration)

h = hammer on

p = pull off

/ = slide (low to high)

\ = slide (high to low)

^ = bend (listen for pitch and release charateristics)

()= note inside parenthesis not plucked or hammered on

{}= note inside pointed parenthesis still ringing from previous measure



* My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song. In other words,

there are no specific notations to account for note / rest duration. However, you will

that I’ve made an attempt to strategically space the notes and rests within their

measures

in order to represent the appropriate durations.





“And if I say_____ to you tomorrow ...”
