Hey all.

I tabbed out a lesson on Led Zeppelin's "That's The Way" in Open G tuning for the Easy Songs forum, and it's been up for about a week, and I think maybe I should have posted it on this forum instead, as I haven't gotten any comments on it yet. I think it's a pretty easy song to play, and a pretty song at that, but maybe the open tuning is throwing people off? Anyways, if anyone would like to check it out, you can find it here:

Led Zeppelin - That's The Way

Comments/feedback would be appreciated, as this is the first "lesson" I've done, and I'd like to know if there are ways I can improve anything to make it easier.

Thanks,
Dan :D

Dan T. Ive played that song for years in open G. as you found it is a very cool song to play.

I think what you have is fine. but dont ask me for a detailed critique since I dont do Tabs. at a glance your layout looks fine.
sorry if you were expecting more.

Thanks for the feedback dogbite. I really appreciate it. I was just worried that after spending all the time I did on it, and checking & re-checking everything, that maybe I missed something, or made it too difficult or something. Being my 1st one, I was nervous. I usually try to comment and give feedback on songs that are posted if I know them, because I know the poster put alot of time & effort into them for everyone else to enjoy, and I know feedback is always appreciated. I also did a super easy one - Rain by The Beatles, and got good feedback on that as well, so I guess I'm on the right track & will continue. :D

Thanks again! 8)

Glad you like it! :D

Another one you may be interested in doing on acoustic is "The Rain Song". I posted that one on the ESD a few weeks back.

Have fun! 8)

before my furnace broke down on saturday afternoon I was spending the morning with my G tyuned resonator working up two versions of Zep covers.
Bring it on Home
When the Levee Breaks.
they may not have originally been in open G but it works.
guess I will post my clips when the furnace works again.
brrrr.

As noted in an earlier thread in this forum, Led Zeppelin's "When The Levee Breaks" was recorded in Open G with a 12-string Fender. Then the recording was slowed down to about an F pitch to "fatten up the sound."

I've come to like playing it in Open D, myself. Really "fat."

I'd like to see those songs dogbite. 8)

Hope you got your heat back on, getting cold down here the last few days, so I'll bet it's even colder up there by you. :(

Keep warm!

yeah, the heat is on but my boiler has trouble lighting the gas. there's a boom and the pilot goes out. the furnace is old. 1914.
I have bids a new one. six thousand. guess I wont be buying guitars for awhile.

Thanks much for this. I just got a chromatic tuner and have started experimenting. This is one of my favorite Zeppelin songs, so I'll be working on it!
