Tangerine
Led Zeppeling

There are a couple of chord shapes which I need to explain:

Three chords based around Amin. which I'll call:

    Am      Am sus2   Am sus4
            (Am2)     (Am4)
N ++++++    ++++++    ++++++
  ||||1|    ||||||    ||||1|
1 ++++++    ++++++    ++++++
  ||23||    ||23||    ||23||
2 ++++++    ++++++    ++++++
  ||||||    ||||||    ||||4|

And three chords based around Dmaj. which I'll call:

    D       D sus2    D sus4
            (D2)      (D4)
N ++++++    ++++++    ++++++
  ||||||    ||||||    ||||||
1 ++++++    ++++++    ++++++
  |||1|2    |||1||    |||1|2
2 ++++++    ++++++    ++++++
  ||||3|    ||||3|    ||||34

The opening sequence to the song. I've left in timing counts (the song
is in 4:4 as far as I can tell)..

D.... D.... D.... D.... D D4 D D2 D .. D D4 D D2 D  ad nauseum whatever - I
didn't count them

plus a couple of chords to finish..

[some picking is done around these chord shapes, but I can't be bothered working
it out - should be easy though - lots of twiddly work with pinkys etc.]

is it in standard tuning?
i played it with the cd but i wasn't sure if my tuning was right

the rhythm's perfect and i'm sure the rest is right, i just wasn't 100%

maybe my tuning's just bad >.<
