Lesson notes

Babe I'm Gonna Leave You is an acoustic fingerpicking song played using arpeggios (chords played one string at a time). It uses a repetitive 4-mote pattern and the challenge is to keep all notes ringing as long as possible. Jimmy Page took credit for arranging it as a traditional tune when it appeared on the first Led Zeppelin album. Page and Robert Plant had heard it on a Joan Baez album and later added the real author, Anne Bredon to their credits.
