Led Zeppelin - Moby Dick

 

From the CD 'Led Zeppelin II'

Written by Bonham/Jones/Page

Atlantic Records 82633-2

 

This song is in 4/4, dropped-D tuning. It has been tabbed by many

people, including Simon Chiplin (scc92@ecs.soton.ac.uk), Joel Bruner

(brunej@rpi.edu), and myself from rand@ingress.com last year, but I had

it wrong too. Here is the correct version. The key is C.

 

Jimmy Pena - jimmy@walrus.com

 

| = not a standard bar line; just used to separate music

~ = vibrato or held note

h = hammer on

p = pull off

s = slide

b = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret

r = release bend to indicated string/fret

/ = slide up from infinity

\ = slide down into infinity

o \_

o / repeat sign (always look for these!)

 

[x35553] = fret box; this is a C chord - this is the same as standard

tablature, only turned on its side. Tilt your head clockwise to read.

 

Don't forget: Dropped-D tuning = [DADGBe] (low to high)
