Tangerine

Led Zeppelin


[multiple versioins]
Actually, there was an addition to this, from another list member (Dan someone from very hazy memory) which was the first chords (Am Am7 Am ..) should be Am Am7 Am Asus2 or something like that.
Anyway, I play it like I've said (with the Asus2 chord) and it sounds correct (If you listen to the song you should be able to hear 4 chords before the G). So here's my revision:
"'Measuring a summer's day...." (Just *HAD* to fix that!).
Am Am7 Am Asus2 G G D --0----0----0----0----3----3----2-- --1----3----1----0----3----3----3-- --2----2----2----2----0----0----2-- --2----2----2----2----0----0----0-- --0----0----0----0----2----2------- ----------------------3----3-------
Oh, yeah. There's two G chords after the A sequence, then you strum the D for the appropriate number of beats (I think 4). When you repeat the sequence, it's *two* D chords then *two* C chords (You should be able to find a C major fingering picture somewhere).
When I remember to bring in the damn book, I will hopefully be able to give you the tab for the tinkly bit after 'grey'. You know - "Measuring a summer's day, only find it slips away to grey The hours they bring me pain".

I got this off ftp.maths.tcd.ie enjoy. "Here's most of Tangerine by Led Zeppelin. There is already one of these floating round, but there's only a couple of chords. So I thought I would attempt to get it down the way I play it - this is my first attempt ever, so excuse any major cock-ups please. I've ignored the "botched" intro on the album (Led Zeppelin III). There are a couple of chord shapes which I need to explain: Three chords based around Amin. which I'll call: Am Am sus2 Am sus4 (Am2) (Am4) N ++++++ ++++++ ++++++ ||||1| |||||| ||||1| 1 ++++++ ++++++ ++++++ ||23|| ||23|| ||23|| 2 ++++++ ++++++ ++++++ |||||| |||||| ||||4| And three chords based around Dmaj. which I'll call: D D sus2 D sus4 (D2) (D4) N ++++++ ++++++ ++++++ |||||| |||||| |||||| 1 ++++++ ++++++ ++++++ |||1|2 |||1|| |||1|2 2 ++++++ ++++++ ++++++ ||||3| ||||3| ||||34 The opening sequence to the song. I've left in timing counts (the song is in 4:4 as far as I can tell).. 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 Am Am4 Am Am2 G G D D E-0---0---0---0---3-------3---2---|-2-------2-------2---2---2-2-----| B-1---3---1---0---0-------0---3---|-3-------3---3---3---3---3-3-----| G-2---2---2---2---0-------0---2---|-2-------2-------2---2---2-2-----| D-2---2---2---2---0-------0---0---|-0-------0-------0---0---0-0-----| A-0---0---0---0---2-------2---0---|-#-------#-------#---------------| E-#---#---#---#---3-------3---#---|-#-------#-------#---------------| 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 Am Am4 Am Am2 G G D D C C E-0---0---0---0---3-------3---2---|-2-------2---0---0-------0---0---| B-1---3---1---0---0-------0---3---|-3-------3---1---1-------1---1---| G-2---2---2---2---0-------0---2---|-2-------2---0---0-------0---0---| D-2---2---2---2---0-------0---0---|-0-------0-------2-------2-------| A-0---0---0---0---2-------2---0---|-#-------#-------3-------3-------| E-#---#---#---#---3-------3---#---|-#-------#-------#-------#-------| 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 [picking] Am Am Am G G D D D E-------------------------0-----0-|-0-----3-3-----2-2-------2--2--2-| B-------------------------1-----1-|-1-----0-0-----3-3-------3--3--3-| G-----0-------0-----------2-----2-|-2-----0-0-----2-2-------2--2--2-| D---2-------0-------------2-----2-|-2-----0-0-----0-0-------0--0--0-| A-3-----3-2-----2-0-------0-----0-|-0-----2-2-----#-#-------0--0--0-| E-------------------------#-----#-|-#-----3-3-----#-#-------#--#--#-| 1 2 3 4 D4 D D2 D E-3---2-------0---2---------------| B-3---3-------3---3---------------| G-2---2-------2---2---------------| D-0---0-------0---0---------------| A-#---#-------#---#---------------| E-#---#-------#---#---------------| Repeated thru Verse 1: --------------------- Am Am4 Am Am2 G G D D D ..

Here is another slightly different version of "Tangerine", by Led
Zeppelin. Jimmy uses a 12 string so it's sounds slightly different if you're using a 6. Key:
^ bend |o--------o| r release |o--------o| repeat [ ] harmonics x / y slide
Tune down 1/4 step.
