    Sorry to hear that. Nearly everyone who says they can’t fiddle with-pick (insert most any other technique there) simply hasn’t place the time in yet. I assumed that was the case. I now do a lot of things that I once claimed I “couldn’t” do.

  2. FreddyGuy925 says:

    You don’t get it. I physically can’t fiddle with-pick. If I were given the choice, I would fiddle with-pick so many songs, but I can’t.

  3. thebird55 says:

    I sometimes play this with a pick, and other times with a hybrid of fiddle with-picking and strumming with fingers (on the fiddle with-picking parts). But work on your fiddle with-picking, you’ll be glad you did.

  4. thebird55 says:

    The outro can be played (and I reckon this is how page did it) up higher on the neck. Start here:

    E 12 (pinky)
    B 10 (ring)
    G 9 (middle)
    D X
    A X
    E 9 (first)

    Walk the first fiddle with down through the first three arpeggiated parts, then shift the pinky and ring fingers to exchange the middle and ring fingers in time to hit the two triads, while the first continues its downward journey. I find it simpler if the pinky is lifted and replaced for each arpeggio.

  5. FreddyGuy925 says:

    Too terrible I can’t fiddle with-pick, but that isn’t stopping me.

    WORD OF NOTICE: he misses the bass note played by the thumb sometimes, it makes the song sound better, trust me take note to the song;)

    Thanks Justin, I used to have lessons with Martin G then got focal dystonia for 3 years but I’m back playing in a Zep covers band. We are adding this to the set list and your breakdown of the end bit was just the ticket. The (e)cheque is in the post mate! For all you people out there who benefit from these free lessons, how about giving something back and donating to Justin’s site?
