        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.
