The Song Remains The Same - Led Zeppelin sur Guitariff.net
2 versions ------------------------- The Song Remains the Same by Led Zeppelin This was a requested a while ago, but it took a while to tab. Sorry for the wait. This song has 3 12-string electrics and 2 6-strings(telecaster thru supro) Ill try to keep them all straight for you. The intro is 1 12string banging out an open D repeatedly. One 12-string plays this set of chords over it: e--2-----5-----7-----9\----14------14\----------------------------------- b--3-----6-----8----10\----15------15\----------------------------------- g--2-----5-----7-----9\----14------14\----------------------------------- d------------------------------------------------------------------------ a------------------------------------------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------------------ and the third 12 plays these chords: e--------------12----12---------14-----14\------------------------------- b--7-----8-----12----14---------15-----15\------------------------------- g--7-----7-----12----14---------14-----14\------------------------------- d--7----10--------------------------------------------------------------- a------------------------------------------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------------------ Now one 12 stops playing and one 12 plays these chords while the second 12 plays the same chords but with an open D-string instead of a second fret D e--0----0-0--2------2-2--0---0-0--2--2-2--3--3-3-0--0-0--3--3-3--2------ b--3----3-3--3------3-3--3---3-3--3--3-3--3--3-3-3--3-3--3--3-3--3------ g--2----2-2--2------2-2--2---2-2--2--2-2--2--2-2-2--2-2--2--2-2--2------ d--2----2-2--2------2-2--2---2-2--2--2-2--2--2-2-2--2-2--2--2-2--2------ a----------------------------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------------------------- Now this chord sequence is played by 2 12's the same way and repeat it. /-again the 2nd 12 plays the open D on this chd e-2--2-2-----2--2--3--3-3----2--0--------------------------------------- b-3--3-3-----3--3--3--3-3----3--3--------------------------------------- g-2--2-2-----2--2--2--2-2----2--2--------------------------------------- d-0--0-0-----0--0--0--0-0----0--0--------------------------------------- a------------------------------------------------------------------------ E----------------------------------------------------------------------- Next is both 12's playing this: e---0----0---0-0----0---0---0-------0--------0----0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---- b---1-1----1---0-0--0-----0----1--3---3-1-3-------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---- g------------------------------------------------------------------------ d-3-----------------3----------3----------------------------------------- a------------------------------------------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next one of the 6 strings come in with the 2 12's to play this: e--0----0-0--2------2-2--0---0-0--2--2-2--3--3-3-0--0-0--3--3-3--2------ b--3----3-3--3------3-3--3---3-3--3--3-3--3--3-3-3--3-3--3--3-3--3------ g--2----2-2--2------2-2--2---2-2--2--2-2--2--2-2-2--2-2--2--2-2--2------ d--2----2-2--2------2-2--2---2-2--2--2-2--2--2-2-2--2-2--2--2-2--2------ a----------------------------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------------------------- One this next distorted part, the six string plays this: and 12's play this e-------------------------------------------------2----------------------- b-------------------------------------------------3----------------------- g-------------------------------------------------2----------------------- d-------------------------------------------------2----------------------- a---------------0------------------------------0-------------------------- E---3^4--0-3^4--0-----------------3^4--0--3^4----------------------------- Here is the 2 12's backing part to the first solo: e---2------2---3--3-------5--3------------------------------------------- b-----3------3------3-----3--5------------------------------------------- g-------2-------------2-------------------------------------------------- d-0---------------------------------------------------------------------- a------------------------------------------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------------------ And the first 6 string solo: e------------------------------------------------------------------------ b------------------------------------------------------------------------ g-----------------------------------------------------7-9-7---7---------- d------------------------7-9-7---9-7---7--7-7-----7-9-------9------------ a-3^4--0--3^4--5-7p5-7/9-------9-----9----------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------------------------------

g--------7------7-9-7---7----7-9^11---------9-7---9-7---7----------------- d-----------7-9-------9----9--------------------9-----9------------------- a------------------------------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now the 6 string plays this figure a few times: e------------------------------0------------------------------------------ b------------------------------0------------------------------------------ g--/5-4-2---2----/5-4--2-----2-------------------------------------------- d---------3--------------3-3---------------------------------------------- a------------------------------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------------------------------- And ends it with this: e------------------------------------------------------------------------ b------------------------------------------------------------------------ g--/5-4-2-0------------------------------------------------------------------- d------------3-2-0---------------------------------------------------------- a------------------3-2-0---------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------------------------------ The 2 12's play this after the solo: and end that section with a bunch of /-these e--3-5---8--8--8------3--5---8--8--8--7-7---8--------------------------- b--5-7--10-10-10------5--7--10-10-10--9-9--10--------------------------- g----------------------------------------------------------------------- d----------------------------0------------------------------------------ a----------------------------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------------------------- During the vocals, the 2 12's play on this basic pattern with a few subtle changes on the first couple of measures. e--0---0---------------3-----0------0----------------------------------- b--1---1-----3-----3h5----3--3--3-3---3p1-----0------------------------- g--0---0-----0-----------------------------0---------------------------- d--2---2---------------------------------------------------------------- a--3---3---------------------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------------------------- While the 6 plays this on the first two measures.

this: e-0--0----0--0---0-----------0--0----------0--0----0--0---0---0---0--0------- b-1--1----2--2---2-----2-----0-------0-2--------0--1----0-1-----0-1---1-0--0-

g----------3-------------------4/7-----4/6-----4h5------5----------------- d----4-----4-----------------4--------------------------------------------

g--14/16----|--------------3h4----3-4---3h4---3-4---3^4--------------------- d-----------|-------------------------------------------5------------------- a-----------|--------------------------------------------------------------- E-----------|--------------------------------------------------------------- On the last measure of the vocal part, the 6 plays this: e---------------------------------1--------5-------10--8-----8-------10-- b-------------------------0-----1---1--------------------------10/12-----

a------------------------------------------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------------------ Then just bend the g-string 5th fret up and pick it as you release the bend. The second solo is this: e----------------------------------------7------------------------------- b--7-----7-----------------------------7---10-10-7-----------------------

a--7/9--------9-------7/9------10---9------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------------------ After the next vocals bit, The 12's play this chord sequence hitting each one 3 or 4 times: /--now just arpeggiate this chord e--8--7--10---8--12---10/14--------------------------------------------- b-10--8--12--10--13---12/15--------------------------------------------- g------------------------16---------------------------------------------

d------5-5-7------------------------------------------------------------- a--5-7------------------------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------------------------------ And then the power chords with the 12's and the 6 Next is as little soloing over the rythym laid down by the 2 12's and 1 6

I play this with only 1 other guitarist. In the case where you only have 2 guitarists the soloing (guit.3) replaces guit.2 (when they're both playin together..) The only way to figure out this tab and the song is to listen to the song a bunch of times while trying to follow the tab and play yer guitar.. Though the tab looks kinda chaotic, and there r lotsa references to **3** and **2** etc (which you'll have to memorize ;) it's fairly complete. Hope some1 uses this tab to it's potential ;) Dustin S.
