whole lotta love

this is the main riff:

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------
b|-----------------------------------------------------------------------
g|----------------5--5-5-5--5-5-5-----------------5--5-5-5--5-5-5--------
d|----------------5--5-5-5--5-5-5-----------------5--5-5-5--5-5-5--------
a|-----5^-----5^--7--7-7-5--7-7-7------5^-----5^--7--7-7-7--7-7-7--------
E|-5s7----5s7-----0--0-0-0--0-0-0--5s7----5s7-----0--0-0-0--0-0-0--------
                  
                  -----muted-----                 -----muted-----





I'm assuming that the player knows the song, hence I'm not including lyrics.

Notation: s=sixteenth note, e=eighth note

Intro/Verses:

   s e  s e  s s s s s s s s s    s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s
E|------------------------------|----------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|----------------------------------|
G|------------------------------|----------------------------------|
D|---0----0--2-------2-------2--|-------2-------2-------2-------2--|
A|-2----2-----------------------|----------------------------------|
E|-------------0-0-0---0-0-0----|-0-0-0---0-0-0---0-0-0---0-0-0----|

For the intro, play the whole figure straight through twice.  For the verses,
just play the first half.

The low E's are sort of optional -- if it's tough, just play the high E's
by themselves, or kindly ask a bass player to play them.

Chorus: "Wanna Whole Lotta Love?"

   s s s s s e (slide)
E|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|-------------------|
D|-0-0-0-0-0----9\---| play 4 times
A|-----------7-------|
E|-------------------|


Sorry, but I don't have the guitar solo/interlude/etc. but this should be a
good start.

I don't know if this is an easy-to-get solo in USA or EUROPE. Here it's not.
Anyway, this is a version I got from a chilean magazine and I'd like your
opinion about how accurate it is.

I have just read an interview with Page where he explains how exactly he plays
the riff in "Whole lotta love".
The tablature in the archive is fine, but the original sounds a little differen
t. Here we go :
 
E--------------|--------------
B--------------|--------------
G--------------|--------------
D----0---0-----|--------------       and repeate.
A----5~--5~-7--|-7-7-7---7-7-7
E--7---7----0--| 0-0-0---0-0-0
 
 
~ stands for slight bend, which is the trick here. D sounds on two strings
simultaniousely.
 
Have fun !
