Violin Bow Solo Here, Instead of trying to tab out the studio version (an amalgam of overdubs) I am going to tab out most of what Page Played at Led Zeppelins performance at the Royal Albert Hall on January 9th 1970. You can find this on the main feature on disc one of their DVD. This is not exact so there are probably a lot of errors and there are parts, which I did not tab so here goes. Forget about rhythm this is in time. Delay is used a lot (feedback 0, 1 second delay).

And that’s that. This is a mixture of my work and tabs from the Internet, so thanks to those who tabbed bits out(most notably the Solo). Speaking of the solo, if you find it hard, just learn little recognizable phrases and for the rest just jam on an E minor pentatonic. Here it is. Enjoy
