Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


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]  
N ++++++ [(Am2)]++++++ [(Am4)]++++++
[1] [1]  
[1] [++++++] [++++++] [++++++]  
[23] [23] [23]  
[2] [++++++] [++++++] [++++++]  
[4]  
And three chords based around Dmaj. which I'll call:
[D] [D] [sus2] [D] [sus4]  
N ++++++ [(D2)]++++++ [(D4)]++++++
[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)..

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
