	Okay, here's the TAB for "Good Times, Bad Times" by Led Zeppelin:
      E5                                      [:     D         A    :]x5
e---------------------------------------------------------------------
B--T--9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9
-----7-7-----------
G--A--9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9
-----7-7-----------
D--B--9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9-r---9-9
----7-7-7-4-7------
A-----7-7-r---7-7-r---7-7-r---7-7-r---7-7-r---7-7
--/5-----5---4--5-6
E-----0-0-r---0-0-r---0-0-r---0-0-r---0-0-r---0-0-r-------------------
					   
	This is the intro, taking you up to the chorus. ("Good Times, Bad  
Times...")  There are actually two guitars here, but I've tried to simplify  
things as much as possible for one.  Also, watch for minor changes in the  
fingering, as there are changes not only between the hammers-on and slides of  
the two guitar parts, but between each time the bit is repeated.  My symbols  
above the TAB, "[:  :]x mean to repeat everything betweeen the brackets and  
colons, and do it the number of times followed by "x", in this case five times.
					-Dave

	Here's the chorus, in which I'll TAB out the two guitar parts  
separately, as there is quite a difference:

Guitar II:
               x x                                 x x
e-----3/5--3---x-x------------------------------5--x-x------10------------
B--T--3/5--5---x-x-7/12-12-10---10-10-0-3/5-----5--x-x-7-12-12-----7-7-7-
G--A--4/6--6---x-x-7/12-12-11---11-11-0-4/6-----6--x-x-7-12-12---7-7-7-7-

E-----3/5--5-------5/10-10-10---10-10---3/5-5---5------5-10---------------

e---------7-----------------------------------7---------------
B--T------7---9/14---14-14---12-12-12---------7---------------
G--A------8---9/14---14-14---13-13-13---------8---------------    
D--B------9---9/14---14-14---14-14-14---------9-9-9-9-9-9---
   ("r" stands
A-----9-9-9---7/12---12-12---14-14-14---7/9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9---
    for "rest")
E-----7-7-----7/12---12-12---12-12-12---5/7-7----7-7-7-7-7---

Guitar I:
      
e--------------------------------------------------------------------------
B--T-----2-----------------------------------------------------------------
G--A-----------------------------------------------------------------------
D--B--------------------2-2---2----7^5^7-----7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-7/9-9-9-9-
A-----------------------0-0---0---0------0---------------------------------
E-----4/5--------------0-------------------------5/7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5/7-7-7-7-

e------------------------
B--T---------------------
G--A-----------4
-------
D--B--7/9-9-9-9----------
A--------------2
-------
E-----5/7-7-7-7----------

	At this point "Sixteen I fell in love..." both guitars play the same  
part, which is:
    [:F#5       E5F#5   E5F#5  F#5       E5 F#5  E5F#5:]x3
e------------------------------------------------------
B--T---------------------------------------------------
G--A----------11^9-11--4^2-4-x---------11^9-11-4^2-4^2-
D--B----------11-9-11--4-2-4-x---------11-9-11-4-2-4-2-
A-----4-4------------------------4---------------------
E-----2-2----------------------2-2---------------------

	Watch for changes in which notes are struck and where rests are taken  
each time you repeat.
	Now the chorus comes again, but this time it's in B, use chord changes  
between B (x2444x), Esus4 (00222x), and E (02210x).  At "when my woman left  
home..."  go to a C# (x4666x) on "woman", to a B (799877) to an F#  
(x9.11.11.11x).  Hopefully, you get the picture.  I could TAB it out, but it's  
not that complex, and I'm feeling lazy.

	The letters following the numbers refer to bends, b for a whole step, h  
for a half step, q for a quarter bend.  In some cases there are combinations,  
"bb" means two full steps, while "bh" would mean to bend the note one and a  
half steps.  You probably can also tell that guitar II has it's own variation  
through much of the solo, which I haven't included.  I hope this can do some  
good, as I am sure there are mistakes in my transcription, and it may be  
difficult to interpret overall.  Oh well.  E-mail me if you find glaring  
errors, or simply correct and repost.

	Coming next: "Behind Blue Eyes", by The Who.
