Someone is forgetting something! The low E is tuned down to a D for Moby Dick.
Here is the song:
This song is really easy to play, even if you don't know the solos. :-) Enjoy! Make sure you listen to the song or you won't know the changes. You NEED to tune the 6th string to D to play this.
[Riff 1]
e:-------------------------------| B:-------------------------------| G:o-----------------------------o| D:o-----------------------------o| A:----5--5--3--------------------| E:-0-----------5--3--5--3--5--3--|
[Riff 2]
e:-------------------------------| B:-------------------------------| G:o-----------------------------o| D:o--5--5--3--0-----------------o| A:---------------1--3--1--3--1---| E:-5-----------------------------|
[Riff 3]
e:--------------------------------------------------------------| B:--------------------------------------------------------------| G:-------------------------------------------7--5---------------| D:---7--7--5-----7--7---5--7--5-5-5-5-5-----------7--5----------| A:------------7-------7-----------------8--5-----------8--------| E:-7------------------------------------------------------------|
Okay, now for the song, play [Riff 1] four times, then [Riff 2] two times, then back to [Riff 1] two times, then break into [Riff 3] once, then repeat the entire cycle. This sequence repeats a few times, then after the end of [Riff 3] play this:
e:--------------| B:--------------| G:--------------| D:--------------| A:----5---------| E:----0---------|
So when the song is ending, instead of looping back to [Riff 1] after [Riff 3], you play this as the last note. There is a long pause in the middle where Bonham goes off, which is good for drummers but not for us. :-) This song took me about 10 minutes to get down right, and I've only been playing for 7 months, so this one should be no sweat. Of course, if you can do Page's mini solos in between the pauses later in the song, good luck.
