Artist: Robert Plant
Song: If I were a carpenter
Album: the Fate of Nations LP 
Tunning: standard
Tabbed By: INIDE NATION

                  

Hey! Here's the tab of a very simple Plant's song even though it is
very beautiful, especially if you can play guitar... 
There is just 2 riffs in this song  
there are very simple words. 
I wouldn't recommend to play it on an electric guitar
but it sounds better on the accoustic guitar.

So here it is,

First of all: ~  - means vibrato.


Intro part:



E-|--------------------|
A-|---6----------------|
D-|-----------8--------|
G-|------------------8-|
B-|--------------------|
E-|--------------------|


E-|--------------------|
A-|---6----------------|
D-|---------8----------|
G-|------------------8-|
B-|--------------------|
E-|--------------------|



E-|--------------------|
A-|---6----------------|
D-|----------8---------|
G-|--------------------|
B-|--------------------|
E-|--------------------|


E-|-----6-----8-----9---------------9---8-----6----~4-------|
A-|---------------------11----------------------------------|
D-|--------------------------11-----------------------------|
G-|---------------------------------------------------------|
B-|---------------------------------------------------------|
E-|---------------------------------------------------------|


Play intro part two times.

It was kinda intro,
then there are the same chords and similar arpegios.
There is a perfect violin solo in the middle of the song, but I'm not the
best
violin player...

So when Robert starts singing it something like this:



(Variate the arpegios as you want; just don't change the chords; )



E-|------------------------9-----------------------|
A-|--6--------------------------11-----------------|
D-|-----8------------------------------11----------|
G-|--------8---------------------------------------|
B-|------------------------------------------------|
E-|------------------------------------------------|

   If I were a carpenter, you ...




E-|----------------------9-------------------------|
A-|--6--------------------------11-----------------|
D-|------8-----------------------------------------|
G-|----------8--------------------------11---------|
B-|------------------------------------------------|
E-|------------------------------------------------|


   Would you marry me anyway, ...



And so on,
Led Zeppelin and Robert Plant forever!

Never mind pickle for brains. Yes it was upside down but easy for me to correct and I have to say it was useful to me so thank you very much.
The world is full of insecure people that are very very rude and I suspect that if he talked to people face to face like that he'd have false teeth by now.
Take care.
