Subject: TAB: Robert Plant - 'Great Spirit'

No one requested this, but I like it and for once I don't have
deadlines or exams hanging over my head, so here you go.

Robert Plant - Great Spirit
From Fate of Nations

IntroE-|-----------------------------|B-|-----------------------------| Play this a few times, varyingG-|--5h7--7x--7x--7x--x-x-x-x---| the pattern that you mute theD-|-----------------------------| strings to sound as funky asA-|-----------------------------| possible, and then:D-|-(0)-------------------------|
E-|-----------------------------|B-|---------------6--8--6vvv----|G-|--5h7--7x--7x----------------| Then go right back into theD-|-----------------------------| intro, after a few more times,A-|-----------------------------| play:D-|-----------------------------|
E-|---------------7b8rb7----(5)---|B-|-----------------------8-(6)---|G-|--5h7--7x--7x-------------7----|D-|-------------------------------|A-|-------------------------------|D-|-------------------------------|
As a little aside here, most of the song is centered around two chords, Dm and G. These are the chords you sometimes here being played over these intro parts. If you ever get lost, revert to either using them or playing along with the bass. My suggestions for these are: Dm G Bass Part
E-|--5--|------|--------------------------------------|B-|--6--|--12--|--------------------------------------|G-|--7--|--12--|--------------------------------------|D-|--7--|--12--|---------------------5--0-------------|A-|--5--|--10--|----5--0------------------------------|D-|-----|------|----------0--0-0-0---------5--5-5-5---|
One of those should get you back on track. Figures 1 and 2 shown below appear again and again throughout the song, listen for where they fit in. And most of the leads (and my attempt at the solo) is based on a Dm pentatonic scale. If you need ideas for the leads, look at the solo.

Solo (I'll try to break it into phrases, if I indent a line, it means that the new line is still a continuation of the last phrase. )

Then go back to playing whatever leads come to mind. BTW, this is also a bribe. I'm looking for 'Come Into My Life' and 'The Greatest Gift' from the same album. Anyone know them? Anyone willing to (or have time to) work on them? (if you email me, I can send you a very small start to Come Into My Life). Also, does anyone know anything else that Kevin Scott MacMichael (the guitarist on this album) has worked on? I'm not even asking for TAB here, just names of albums, etc. I have no idea where to even start looking for any of his stuff. Might have been a studio musician before working with Plant on this one, which would make it difficult. In any event, I hope you like this tab. As always-questions, comments, additions, and corrections are welcome. M Holladay holladay@engin.umich.edu
