I noticed UG was lacking a proper tab for this classic, so i ventured into the
internet to find one. Here it is:

  "The Ocean"

             from Led Zeppelin's 'Houses of the Holy' album

so yeah, this isn't MY tab, so i can't be accountable for mistakes,
but it looks more complete than the ones we currently have.

Its more correct than the other ones at least.

The signature riff is 100% correct. It drives me crazy when people miss that hammer-on.

the signature riff is right but you could add a repeat of 5 in the last measure... it seems like he plays it again when going back to start it again...
