Nobody's Fault But Mine

by Led Zeppelin (Robert Plant and Jimmy Page)

Ver.1

The intro is double-tracked and played in two octaves.
Its also heavily flanged.  Here's the lower octave:

e---------------------------------------------------------------------------
b--3p0-0-3p0-0-3-3^5--3p0-0-3p0-0---------3p0-0-3-3^5-3-0-------------------
g----------------------------------0-2^4------------------2-0---------------
d---------------------------------------------------------------------------
a---------------------------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------


e---------------------------------------------------------------------------
b---------------------------------------------------------------------------
g-2p1-1-2p1-1-2-2^4^2p1--2--------------------------------------------------
d------------------------2--------------------------------------------------
a------------------------1--------------------------------------------------
E------------------------0--------------------------------------------------


And the intro riff to the lyrics part:


e---------------------------------------------------------------------------
b---------------------------------------------------------------------------
g---------------------------------------------2-----------------------------
d--2p0-0--------------2-----9\7-7-7\4-4-------2-----------------------------
a---------2p0-0-------2-----7\5-5-5\2-2-------0-----------------------------
E----------------3^4--0------------------3^4--------------------------------



And the main rythym:


e---------------------------------------------------------------------------
b---------------------------9--9---------------------9-9-9-10-9-10-9--------
g--7--------7---------------9--9---7------7----------9-9-9-9--9-9--9--------
d--0--7--7--0--7--7---------9--9---0-7-7--0--7-------9-9-9-11-9-11-9--------
a-----0--0-----0--0---5--7--7--7-----0-0-----0--10h11-----------------------
E------------------------0-----0--------------------------------------------


and the ascending chords at the end of each bar(?)


e---------------------------------------------------------------------------
b---------------------------------------------------------------------------
g---------------------------------------------------------------------------
d--2-2--4-4--5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-----------------------------------------
a--2-2--4-4--5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-----------------------------------------
E--0-0--2-2--3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------------------------------------


The solo's kind of tough and I really dont remember it.


Heres the ending sequence of the song:


e---------------------------------------------------------------------------
b---------------------------------------------------------------------------
g---------------------------------------------------------------------------
d-------------------------------------------2-2-2---------------------------
a-14\12-12-12-12\9-9-9-9-9\7-7-7-7-7\5------2-2-2---------------------------
E-12\10-10-10-10\7-7-7-7-7\5-5-5-5-5\3-3^4--0-0-0---------------------------


Enjoy!

     Well that's basically it.  The next couple of times through there
is a few percussive notes here and there, most notably 1 percussive
note in place of F-----0-0-0-0-;  play a heavy  ---
                                                -İİ
                                                -x-
                                                -x-
                                                -x-     
                                                İİİ
    I'll check the original notes when I go home and post any
corrections if need be.  Otherwise, this is the way she is folks. 
Only a few conditions regarding this post:
                                   
                  (1) learn the riff
                  (2) play it everywhere
                  (3) show others how to play it
                  (4) enjoy the music  
                  (5) tell everyone it was written by Jimmy Page



    "....I'm so happy, I wanna join the band, we're gonna sing and     
     dance in celebration, 'cause we're in the Promised Land...."

        This tab is not 100% correct, but it is close enough. The
original transcription is from Charles Eric Horowitz
(ceh1@acpub.duke.edu). I have added the double-tracked intro, some
rhythm
parts, and the solo. The key is A.


Jimmy Pena - jimmy@walrus.com


| = not a standard bar line; just used to separate music
~ = vibrato or held note
x = percussive note with no pitch; muted note
.. = staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it
h = hammer on
p = pull off
s = slide
b = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret
r = release bend to indicated string/fret
/ = slide up from infinity
\ = slide down into infinity
o  \_
o  /   repeat sign (always look for these!)

The 77's Lyrics
(By Blind Willie Johnson)
[As best I can desern them]


Aah aah aah aah, (et)


Oooo, It's nobody's fault but mine
It's nobody's fault but mine
If I don't keep my soul alive
Its nobodies fault but mine


The devil he told me to roam
The devil he told me to roam, roam, roam
I've been a roamin' into the night
Well, It's nobody's fault but mine


ah.....


I've got a Bible in my house
I've got a Bible in my house
If I don't read it and my soul dies
Well, It's nobody's fault but mine


My sister she told me to read it
My sister she told me to read, read, read
I didn't read it, lost the light
Well, It's nobody's fault but mine


ah.....


If I don't keep my soul alive
Well, No No No Nobody's Fault
