A fair chunk of the credit should go to Jeff Lo who originally sent in some

TAB for this great acoustic piece. I made quite a few additions and

corrections but I couldn't have done it without him making a start.

 

There are already two versions of this at Nevada with different tunings.

I tried them both, but they're not so good. Take my word for it : this

version is virtually note for note what you hear on the record. Give it a

try and I think you'll soon agree.

 

Please note - the exact details of the strumming etc are not included.

Where a chord is repeated I have indicated that, but check out the record

to be sure if he strums it 2, 3 or 4 times before changing shapes.

What you have here is the TAB of all the changes, which is all you really

need.

 

There is a part which cannot really be played on one guitar - the bit where

an electric guitar plays a little descending run while the acoustic plays

chords. I've tabbed both parts for this - Guitar 1 is the acoustic, Guitar 2

is the electric.

 

Also - the main part of the TAB (upto the bit marked 'Variation') is repeated

quite a few times. I havn't shown the repeats because once you know how

to play it it's obvious when it repeats again.

 

The Variation bit replaces the equivalent two lines of TAB above it. I think this

variation comes just before the 'heavy' bit where the drums and loud electric

start up. I didn't TAB out the guitar for this - it's basically just chords of :

 

G F C G

 

 

Enjoy!

In measure 9 of first verse, there's a slight nuance:

Return to INTRO for second time, then VERSE for second time, however, there

is a slight nuance of the second verse, measure 5 which is the same as

the above nuance. Also, measure 8 of the second verse varies slightly:

Then the 3rd verse continues, however, the first 4 measures of the verse that

are repeated 3 times in the 1st and 2nd verses, are repeated 4 times in the

3rd verse.

 

The 24th measure of the 3rd verse starts VERSE PRIME:

Repeat the last 4 measures 3 more times, however on the

last repeat, substitute the following for the last measure:

===========================

|----5-5-5--0--5--0--7/ 8\|

|----3-3-3--3--3--3--6/ 7\| Then the 4th verse is played, same as the 1st

LED ZEPPELIN THE RAIN SONG FROM HOUSES OF THE HOLY

Hey guys, this is a song I really enjoy playing. I learned it from a

friend a while back and thought Id tab it out for the beginners in the

forum, to show you what fun alternate tunings can be. This is a modal tuning

originally in D

Acoustics: tune down to DGCGCD from low to high Electric: its easier to

because of high tension strings tune 3rd string up to A

and the 2nd string up to

D for EADADE low to high

These are the main parts but not the song from beginning to end. Youll

have to listen to the album for rythms and suquence of parts.
