Tangerine Guitar Lesson
Led Zeppelin’s *Tangerine *has been one of the leading requested songs here at TG for quite some time. Jimmy Page had the basic idea for the song developing while he was with the Yardbirds and they recorded the prototype as ‘Knowing That I’m Losing You.’ In 1970 he resurrected and recorded it on Led Zeppelin III, their most heavily acoustic oriented album. Although the song was played on a 12-string, tuned down one half step, with the addition of a mandolin, the acoustic guitar part is the main part of the sound. This lesson goes over the rhythm guitar part, paying particular attention to picking out the moving melody notes and getting the offbeat chord changes just right.
