(I had to pick up my guitar and play them to remember it) A minor 7, and then Am, Em, D, C, D in barred positions (though only the top three strings are played).

I can only imagine your thrilled insides, though. Nowadays with the Internet it's so easy it almost isn't worth it anymore, which is why I learn by ear, the hard way, whenever possible. a-hard-days-night-george-4  

That's it.  Try it with four strings, leaving the D open.  What do you think?  I agree about learning by ear, though.  It only helps.

Assorted Zepp Thoughts ahdn_george_01

I had a listen to the fourth album whilst taking a walk today (along with All Things Must Pass )... it was perfectly atmospheric. Walking through the grey drizzly mist singing 'Misty Mountain Hop' very loudly and badly, that's me. a-hard-days-night-george-4

I feel like 'Going To California' is the most mysterious Zeppelin song. The others I can get intimate with, but 'Going To California' -- with its subdued, mildly discontented/disenchanted verses and strangely distant bridge -- betrays none of its secrets.

As @The Hole Got Fixed and I have established, 'Immigrant Song' is a-hard-days-night-paul-7paul-mccartney-thumb_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gif

And finally, I spotted this in my History text:

Good way to describe Going To California, @Beatlebug . I wouldn't say it's as cryptic as the ever-fascinating Stairway To Heaven, but it definitely continues that trend. The one line I don't like is the one about a big jet plane - feels like an anachronism compared to the medieval/folky vibe they have for the ret of the song/album. Actually I think their mixture of folk and acoustic textures in with the heaviness is what makes LZ so much better than other metal bands for me - they sound like a force of nature at times, but also nature itself at others. Back on topic, I love the bridge in Going To California.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

I didn't say 'Going To California' was cryptic -- certainly 'Stairway' is unsurpassed in crypticism, I don't think Plant even knows what it's about a-hard-days-night-john-6 -- but the general vibe of the song is fairly calm on the surface and yet unsettling in a way that I just can't seem to put my finger on. I see what you're saying about the big jet plane line, but I think it works well in the context of 'Misty Mountain Hop' being about counterculture and the times generally, and the general longingness for a simpler existence that is prevalent on both MMH and GTC. And yes, the bridge is amazingly spooky, it's brilliant. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

And while it's been said before, I'll say it again: OF COURSE Led Zeppelin is all about light and shade and that's why they're so good! john-lennon-salute_gif

Zepp thoughts continued:

So I looked up the lyrics and listened to the song and it puts me in mind of Woodstock and Joni Mitchell. On the surface its like all those other hippy songs about going to California to find yourself, and Woodstock certainly made a claim to representing some kind of identity. But the biggest irony about the song Woodstock by Joni Mitchell (and you may be well ahead of me here), is that Mitchell never made it to Woodstock. She wrote the quintessential late 60's hippy song about the quintessential hippy moment without even experiencing it. And of course, Woodstock is in New York State not California. The song has those kinds of ironies about it for me, about how he already knows he won't find what he's looking for because it remains lost or impossible, but he's still going to run away. And I just looked up the wiki page about it and there is indeed a Mitchell connection. So that was a coincidence!

Pics and video of Robert Plant performing at the Wolverhampton Wanderers end of season promotion celebrations (football - Plant is a big Wolves FC fan.  I'm guessing it was last night, judging by when the page was uploaded). Enjoy @WeepingAtlasCedars @Beatlebug beatlemaniacs_02_gif

It's a fun goofy genre parody, like The Crunge or Hot Dog, not really a favourite, clever, a bit monotonous with the doo-wop changes. 

I wanna speak up for "Celebration Day", how I love that one! There are enough guitar parts for multiple songs, and ecstatic Percy babble, JPJ and Bonzo doing what they do... 🙂

I enjoy D'yer Mak'er (the drums especially, makes an absolutely TERRIFYING alarm to wake up to a-hard-days-night-ringo-10), but I wouldn't say it's one of their best.

Celebration Day is awesome -- really, all of Zepp III is beatlemaniacs_02_gif Somewhere on the last(?) [ETA: here it is] page you will find an insanely long rant I ranted about that album.

I love how Robert's 'ecstatic Percy babble' a-hard-days-night-john-6paul-mccartney-thumb_gif contains really poetic and highfalutin lyrics and yet you can't understand them anyway because he's howling them like the horny bluesman that he is. ahdn_paul_01 It's a nice little anachronism about Plant's singing and Zepp in general, how they juxtapose the Mississippi blues with the Celtic/European/Eastern mystical/hippie shit -- and it's HARD to sing, man! a-hard-days-night-paul-10

HOTH is incredibly good and I have often been known to compare it to Revolver , because they are both

incredibly diverse albums on which the artists were clearly going out of their way to dabble in as many different genres and styles as possible, whilst still somehow managing to create a surprisingly cohesive piece of work, infused with a sense of fun/entertainingness? and sunshininess [Beatlebug, April 2019]

'The Rain Song' is quite possibly the best sole piece of guitar music Jimmy Page ever composed, solos notwithstanding. Though 'Ten Years Gone' is also up there, it's more of a guitar-army-orchestra thing, as displayed by this FABULOUS demo tape:

My favorite Zeppelin album changes often. It's generally either I, II, or IV. Right now it's probably IV

1970-1974 was some kinda peak for sure. 

(Also 1968-9. 1975-79)

I remember that wonderful III thinkpiece of yours! I don't know if it's my favourite album (it is, then it isn't, etc), but as a whole package it can't be topped. Like, it's more their "Rubber Soul " than their "Revolver ," yet comes in a gatefold sleeve that actually revolves! Create your own cover, do what thou wilt yoko-ono_01
