You shook me   Led Zeppelin







   You Shook Me by Willie Dixon and J.B. Lenoir 
   performed by Led Zeppelin on Led Zeppelin
    
    Wow, my first tab, and from the greatest band to ever play.  I figured 
    this out by myself, no books (hence the many errors) Ok, this is a 
    basic slow blues, in E, as far as I can tell.
    
    Intro:

E-|--------------------------|
B-|--------------------------|
G-|-------14-12^-------------|  Then some weird slide thing...
D-|-12-14--------14^-12-14-12|  If I had my slide, I'd figure it out.

B-|-----------------------|   Ok, 2nd verse is the same, except Robert
G-|-------14-12^----------|   is talking about a bird or something.   
D-|----14--------14^-12-|   Jimmy varies a little, and I've tried to 
A-|-14--------------------|   tab that out.
E-|-----------------------|

         Ok, now we have an organ solo, harmonica solo, and a guitar solo.
         Here are the basic chords played during all three.  This is not
                                                                     

         entirely accurate, but it's good enough for me.  Sorry I couldn't
         tab out the guitar solo, it's too fast for me to tab, but I can
         fake it on a good day...
