Well, I said I'd post it and it turned out to be
easier than I thought.  As with all of the
Coverdale/Page songs I've posted, repeat the phrases
as necessary.  There is lots of room to experiment
with the leads in this song if you have more than
one guitar playing.  Stuff just started falling together
while I was listening to it last night.  Enjoy...

  Coverdale/Page - Take Me for a Little While

E-|-----------------|-----------|

E-|--0---------3-------1-1-1----1-1-1-----|
B-|--1---------0-------1-1-1----1-1-1-----|
G-|--2---------0-------2-2-2----2-2-2-----|

A-|--0---------2-------3-3-3----3-3-3-----|
E-|--0---------3-------1-1-1----1-1-1-----|

The following phrase also reappears a lot, usually with
leads played over it.  The rhythm shown here may not be
exactly right, but it sounds okay (esp. with the leads)

E-|--0---0-0---1---1-1-1-1-1-1--|--3---3-3---3---3-3-3-3-3-3---|
B-|--1---1-1---1---1-1-1-1-1-1--|--3---3-3---3---3-3-3-3-3-3---|
G-|--2---2-2---2---2-2-2-2-2-2--|--4---4-4---4---4-4-4-4-4-4---|
D-|--2---2-2---3---3-3-3-3-3-3--|--5---5-5---5---5-5-5-5-5-5---|
A-|--0---0-0---3---3-3-3-3-3-3--|--5---5-5---5---5-5-5-5-5-5---|
E-|--0---0-0---1---1-1-1-1-1-1--|--3---3-3---3---3-3-3-3-3-3---|


Incorporate the following licks in as necessary,
these two will be used a lot in this song:

E-|-----------12--15s17vvvvvvvv---|
B-|--------13---------------------|
G-|--12b14------------------------|
D-|-------------------------------|
A-|-------------------------------|
E-|-------------------------------|

E-|------------15------------15-----------------------|
B-|--13p12-13------13p12-13------13p12-13p12----------|
G-|-------------------------------------------12vvv---|
D-|---------------------------------------------------|
A-|---------------------------------------------------|
E-|---------------------------------------------------|

Later, over the top of one of the picking patterns during
a verse you get the following lead:

E-|-------------------------------|
B-|-----------12vv--10vv----------|  This same lead appears
G-|--------13-------------9vv-----|  at other times, sometimes
D-|-----14------------------------|  leaving out the last two
A-|--14---------------------------|  notes, others leaving out
E-|-------------------------------|  the last one.

Just before the solo in the middle of the song, the progression
changes from the   Am F G   to   Am G F .  It's a small change,
but very noticable.  It changes back to the  Am F G right at the
end of the solo.

Solo:
   I'll start the solo from where the common lead lick starts to
   change.  For a few seconds, two guitars will be playing.  This
   probably isn't exactly right either, so if anyone wants to
   post corrections....

Just before the fade on the end, there is and additional
lick between the two common ones shown earlier.  The whole
phrase goes something like this:

E-|-----------15------------15----------------------------------------------|
B-|--13p12-13------13p12-13-------13p12---15b17-15b17-15b17-15b17-15b17--13-|

BTW - if anyone knows anything of any of the songs on
the album that I haven't posted yet, send what you know
to me, even if it is just the chord progressions.  I'd
like to eventually see the entire album posted.
4 down, 7 to go...
