(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.

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!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I do believe I've heard that before (or at least something very similar). It's incredible how Robert can make even some "BABABA BA BA BAAAA"s sound good! a-hard-days-night-george-9apple01heartheartapple01apple01 And Bonham's drummingbeatlemaniacs_02_gifapple01heartapple01heartapple01heart

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
