In this Thank You guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this beautiful acoustic song by Led Zeppelin in it's entirety.
The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.
Jimmy Page used a 12-string Vox guitar for much of the recording, but I think the song works great as a straight acoustic guitar song, so I will teach the entire lesson on acoustic.
The opening chord progression uses a consistent melody along the high E string that really propels it forward. From there a lot of the chords in the verse are from the Hammond Organ being played by John Paul Jones. But I have transcribed those chords for guitar well.
I will go through each chord progression in the song in the order that each appears on the original recording.
I will also show you how to play Jimmy Page's guitar solo note-for-note. This solo can be pretty challenging at certain parts with some very fast picking patterns. For the fastest of those licks, I will show you how to pick it using economy picking to make it a bit easier to play.
The two ending verse sections have some very nice arpeggiated picking in them, I will take you through each section note-for-note.
Have fun with this one!
