Subject: TAB: Wah-wah song (Page/Plant)


Hi. This is the tab for the famed "wah-wah" song performed in the streets of

Marrakech by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, along with some Egyptian musicians.

I've been pretty busy lately, which is why I didnt post this sooner. Time

permiting, ill get around to posting "Wonderful One" next week sometime maybe

after the album comes out. ANyway, heres the song, really, really easy. The

trick of course is the coolest tuning you'll ever see. And here it is...









Yep. Thats right. Open A (sorta). And yes, tune your low E down SEVEN steps,

and go from there. Tune your A down five, and so on. The high strings really

dont matter, since Jimmy just uses the first four, but when I play it I like

to throw in some ringing open chords. VERY cool sound, awesdome song. The

three chords are:


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

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

--- --- -0- -0----------------------

-7- -7- -0- -0---0-2-4-2-0---7------

-7- -9- -0- -0---------------7------

-7- -7- -(0)- (0)--------------7------


Thats it. get into a campfire/arabian kinda mood, take a string off your

friends bass, throw in percussion and jam! I absolutely LOVE playing this

song. email me if you agree, or for other comments. The words, you ask?


From my island home I feel a chance

To kiss the tired ghosts of time and circumstance

So give me peace of mind and let me dance

and bury all my pain and years beneath the sand

On my heel these wings I gladly bear

and laugh into the face of anger and despair


(Gratuitous wah-wahing throughout song, and have fun with the vocals)


later all,
