The way that I have noted the riff for the verse is not the way that I 
normally play it, though it works just fine. I notice some notes are bent 
while they are played. Not much, but a little. Here is how I play it.

Good TAB and it is underrated.Also I have been following Jimmy for 43 years and he plays all his songs different at any time, hes known for that.S o saying a Zep song is not the same as the way Jimmy plays it is incorrect.
