"Gallows Pole" Bass-Tab By Led Zeppelin

 

Off Led Zeppelin III

 

Transcribed By Ryan Klein

 

 

 

Well folks as far as I can tell,

 

there are only 4 parts to this song:

 

 

 

S S S S S S S S S S S S

 

-------------------------------------

 

-------------------------------------

 

-------------------------------------

 

--3--5--3--5-5--5--5--5--3--5--3--5--

 

 

 

S S S S S S S S S S S S

 

-----------------------------------

 

-----------------------------------

 

-----------------------------------

 

-5--5--5--5--3--5--3--5--5--5--5--5

 

 

 

This repeats a few times with an

 

occasional G-D or C-D transition

 

 

 

Then when the "Hangman" chorus

 

comes in:

 

 

 

Q E S S E S S Q Q E S

 

----------4----------------------

 

-7--5--7-----------4--5---7------

 

-------------5--7------------5--7

 

---------------------------------

 

 

 

S Q+ S S S Q E S S

 

------------4-----------------4--

 

--4--5---5------5--7----5--7-----

 

---------------------------------

 

---------------------------------

 

 

 

E S S Q E S S E S S

 

---------------------------------

 

-------4--5--5---4--2------------

 

-5--7-------------------5---3--2-

 

---------------------------------

 

 

 

Then back to the G-A-G-A-G-G-G-G

 

stuff again

 

 

 

 

 

The final part is thrown in at

 

various parts in the song, and

 

pretty much dominates the ending:

 

 

 

 

 

E S S S S S S S S S

 

----------------------------------

 

---5--4--2------------------------

 

-------------5--3--2--------------

 

-----------------------5--3--5--3-

 

 

 

I hope this helps. It may not be

 

right, but I think its close to

 

the actual thing.
