Led Zeppelin – What Is & What Should Never Be tab

Verses:  Jimmy basically plays and A13 and E9 during the slower verses.
Here's how I form these chords :

  A13           E9    and these varied forms

e----------|----0---------7--------------------------------------B---7------|----7---------0--------------------------------------G---6------|----7---------7-----7--------------------------------D---5------|----6---------6-----6--------------------------------A----------|--------------------7--------------------------------E----------|-----------------------------------------------------
I suggest to do a little ad-lib with the E9 chord variations until you find something that works and sounds good to you. Chorus : (heavy guitar sound with distortion) notation : h - hammer p - pulloff b - bend

notation : s = slide (e.g. xsy means pick note x and slide from note x to note y)

Note that on the solo if you aren't playing slide just bar the A on the 14th fret and the B on the 16th fret with your ring finger. It allows you to let the notes ring and makes the fingering very easy. Sometimes I substitute the following A chord and B chords for the A on the 14th and the B on the 16th respectivley, but still play the same notes. Obviously you don't do this if you play the solo with a slide. A B

Outro : Distorted, play to the end of the song. After playing the following part twice, from the third time on mute the strings in between the notes that are played to get that "chuka" effect.

Now putting it altogether : And if I say to you tomorrow, take my hand child come with me. It's to a castle I will take you, Well what's to be they say will be. Chorus : Catch the wind, see us spin, sail-away leave the day, way up high in the sky hey whoa, But the wind won't blow, you really shouldn't go, it only goes to show, that you will be mine by taking our time. Oooh Ho whoa. And if you say to me tomorrow, oh what fun it all would be. Then what's to stop us pretty baby, but what is and what should never be. Chorus : Guitar Solo (with verse rhythym guitar and then into the chorus guitar part) So if you wake up with the sunrise, and all your dreams are still as new, and happiness is what you need so bad, well girl the answer lies with you yeah Chorus : Outro guitar with ad-lib vocals : Uh, but a the wind wont blow and we really shouldn't go, and it only goes to show, whoa, whoa whoa. Got the wind gonna see us spin we're gonna say leave the day. A do be do ba da 'n' do oh. My my my my my yeah. Everybody I know seems to know me well, but they say I'm gonna move like hell. Uh baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby .... As always with my tab versions you better listen to the record to get the timing straight and the changes. Feel free to make any corrections because if it don't sound right it probably ain't.
