Houses Of The Holy
             Words and Music by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant
             From the Recording Physical Graffitti

             Transcribed by Ted DaCosta

First I'll tab the different guitar parts and then the words

notation    h = hammer on
            p = pull-off
            b = bend
Intro
Repeat these first 2 bars twice

                 This chord rings into the next bar for the start of the verse

Note that the chords on the verses sustain a little, but notation wasn't easy
so listen to the record to get the timing and feel.

The above is repeated for the verses 4 times.  But the last time no A chord diagramE MajorE is
played, instead Jimmy goes back into the intro parts.  Othertimes in the
song he plays the A chord diagramE MajorE four times before going back to the intro.  Listen
to the recording to get these changes, it is quite clear.


Note during the song similar riffs to the intro.  The little riff fill goes
something like this.  Note that Jimmy plays variations on the fill.

                          bend from b to c# and then back to b
