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...

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)

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-|-------------------------------|

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 appearsG-|--------13-------------9vv-----| at other times, sometimesD-|-----14------------------------| leaving out the last twoA-|--14---------------------------| notes, others leaving outE-|-------------------------------| 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-|G-|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|D-|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|A-|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|E-|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Questions, comments, additions, and corrections are welcome. Special thanks to Edmund Breslin for giving me the accurate intro. Hope you like it... M Holladay +++++++++++++++++++ holladay@engin.umich.edu 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... -----------------
