In The Evening (By LED ZEPPELIN)
 
From: ceh1@acpub.duke.edu (Charles Eric Horowitz)

In the Evening by Led Zeppelin


The intro thing is just a droning synthesizer and Jimmy playing the open
E-string with a bow.  The overdub is called(I think) a rotovibe which
is a little spinning wheel which when you touch it to the string,
produces that rolling sound.

The main riff is double-tracked and with a little adlibbing is basically:
by the way this is with a strat, or something with a whammy bar:

e-----------------------------------------------------------------------
b---5--5-5--3--3--2\0//2\0-------------5-5-5-3-3--2\0//2-------------
g---4--4-4--2--0--2\0//2\0-------------4-4-4-2-0--2\0//2-------------
d---2--2-2--0--0--2\0//2\0----2-5-2----2-2-2-0-0--2\0//2-------------
a-----------------------------------------------------------------------
E-0-----------------------------------0---------------------------------
                     ^^^Thats a bend down on the whammy bar

The first chorus has something like this:

e---------5--------------------------------------------------------------
b--7--7---5--7---------7--7/8-7----------------5--7-----------7/8--7-----
g--7--7---6--7------7--7--7/9-7---7-7/9-7--7---6--7--------7--7/9--7-----

The second and fourth choruses  go with this chord sequence:

e---3--3---------3--3---3-------5--5---5--5--------------------------------
b---3--3--7------3--3---3----9--5--5---5--5--9-----------------------------

a---5--5--5------5--5---5----7--7--7---7--7--7--7---2-2-2------------------
E---3--3---------3--3---3-------5--5---5--5-----5--------------------------

a--9----------------9-------9----7--5---------9-------9-----7-5---------
E--------------------------------5--------------------------5-----------

The solo is something like this:
The starting thing is Jimmy holding down the Whammy Bar as hard as he can
and forcefully picking out a E-Chord and letting up on the bar:

e-------0----12----------------12-------------------12---------------12--
b------0--------14----------12----15~------------12----15~---------12----

                                             Repeat this^^^^^^^^^^^ 5 times
                                                   pretty quickly
