Subject: TAB: You Shook Me by Led Zeppelin

 

You Shook Me by Willie Dixon and J.B. Lenoir

performed by Led Zeppelin on Led Zeppelin

 

Wow, my first tab, and from the greatest band to ever play. I figured

this out by myself, no books (hence the many errors) Ok, this is a

basic slow blues, in E, as far as I can tell.

Ok, now we have an organ solo, harmonica solo, and a guitar solo.

Here are the basic chords played during all three. This is not

 

entirely accurate, but it's good enough for me. Sorry I couldn't

tab out the guitar solo, it's too fast for me to tab, but I can

fake it on a good day...
