Led Zeppelin - Celebration Day

        From the CD set 'Remasters'
                Written by Jones/Page/Plant
                Atlantic Records  82371-2

        Celebration Day is a cool song that's easy to play if you
practice it for a while. Make sure you listen to it a few times before
you attempt to play it. The entire song is in 4/4 so it should be easy to
keep up. I think this song is in A. Special thanks to Josh M. Johnson
<UFTK99B@prodigy.com> who tabbed the solo.

        Fiz <fiz@tsc.uvigo.es> tabbed the intro and retabbed the main
riff. The A chord diagramA majorA string works as a kind of drone throughout the whole song,
except for the chorus. Let it ring wherever sounds good and try to
mute the A chord diagramE MajorE string with your thumb. There are guitar overdubs in the
song, so it's impossible to play it exactly just with one guitar. In
the chorus the feeling is given by the bass lines, it'd be nice if
someone could tab them.

. = staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it

^ = downward stroke
v = upward stroke
o  \_
o  /   repeat sign (always look for these!)
