In My Time Of Dying

Led Zeppelin

A few things to note: This song is played with a slide

in standard tuning (as far as I can tell). I may have some of the

nuances a little off (like where to begin a particular slide etc.),

but hopefully this will give you an idea of how to play it.

Opening riff: (set tone to "crunchy" :-))

e |---------------------------------|-----------------------|

B |---------------------------------|-----------------------|

G |-3\2^0-2/3/5~--0-3\2^0-(0)/12~---|-3\2^0-2/3/5~-0-3\1^0--|

D |-3\2^0-2/3/5~--0-3\2^0-(0)/12~---|-3\2^0-2/3/5~-0-3\1^0--|

A |---------------------------------|-----------------^-----|

E |---------------------------------|-----------------|-----|

wait slow slide

| |

e |---------------------------------|-----------------|-----|

B |-----------------------------12~-|-----------------v-----|

G |-3\2^0-2/3/5~--0-3\2^0-(0)/12--~-|-3\2^0-2/3/5--0-3\1----|

D |-3\2^0-2/3/5~--0-3\2^0-(0)/12--~-|-3\2^0-2/3/5--0-3\1----|

A |---------------------------------|-----------------------|

E |---------------------------------|-----------------------|

Another part:

e |-----------------------------|---------------------------|

B |-----------------------------|---------------------------|

G |-0-3-5---0-(5)/7-0-(3)/5\3-0-|-0-3-5---0-(5)/7-0-(3)/5-3-|

D |-0-3-5---0-(5)/7-0-(3)/5\3-0-|-0-3-5---0-(5)/7-0-(3)/5-3-|

A |-----------------------------|---------------------------|

E |-----------------------------|---------------------------|

Repeat that once.

Yet another part: (a little faster than previous progressions)

e |------------------------|--------------------------------|

B |------------------------|--------------------------------|

G |-(3)/7~-0-(3)/5^0-3-0-:-|-/12~-0-(3)/5^0-3^0-:--5-(hold)-|

D |-(3)/7~-0-(3)/5^0-3-0-:-|-/12~-0-(3)/5^0-3^0-:--5-(hold)-|

A |----------------------^-|--------------------^-----------|

E |----------------------|-|--------------------|-----------|

repeat repeat

Now, right after that last 5-5 power chord, there's a little

piece that I can't figure out. It leads to this fast part, tight

with the drums:

e |---------------------------------------------------------|

B |---------------------------------------------------------|

G |-(2)/3\2^0-(2)/3\2-0-(2)/5\3-0-(right here I usually play some)

D |-(2)/3\2^0-(2)/3\2-0-(2)/5\3-0-(fast 0-0 "fills"; 3 or 4, drums)

A |---------------------------------------------------------|

E |---------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat several times.

I'm not sure what the standard nomenclature is, but here is what

I meant:

(X)/Y : Start slide at X fret, slide up to Y fret.

X^Y : Pull slide off strings.

X~ : Hold and "wiggle" slide for a tremolo effect.

This is my first tab, so please refrain from flaming, although

corrections are more than welcome. At the very least, your friends

will recognize this tune. I recommend listening to the song, of

course. Have fun!
