Led Zeppelin - Poor Tom Chords

 
No chord
up guitar tuning
No capo
The strumming is again eighth-note strumming, the regular ol'
down-up variety.  Lastly, here's the way to play this figure.
For the first 0-2-0-2-3-0 chord, finger the 2, 2 and 3 with
your middle, fourth and pinky fingers so that when it comes
time to make the quick slide to the 0-4-0-4-3-0 chord, your
middle and fourth fingers slide up, and your index finger is
used to fret the 3 on the second string.  Make sense?  I hope
so.  Oh, and of course, you also slide from the 0-4-0-4-3-0-|
chord to the 0-5-0-5-4-0------------------------------------| chord.  (If you haven't noticed by
now, the "/" signs are for upward slides). As for the rhythm figure that goes on under the harp solo, I seem to recall that it follows the open-chord rule. The problem with this is, if you don't have a harp, etc., it sounds boring if you just play open the whole time. Here's my solution. The sixth and fourth strings are tuned in octaves, as are the fifth and third strings. You can get nice easy bass figures by doubling those strings with each other, and playing blues rip-off lines such as: 1st 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0|0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0|0 .... 2nd 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0|0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0|0 .... 3rd 3 3 X 2 X 3 X X|0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0|0 ....?h)0*0*0*????4th 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0|3 3 X 2 X 3 X X|0 .... 5th 3 3 X 2 X 3 X X|0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0|0 .... 6th 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0|3 3 X 2 X 3 X X|0 .... Here, the X's indicate muted strings, and the columns are again of equal time value. Of course I've given you only two-plus (out of four measures); the rest should be open-strummed (you can throw in some 12th, 7th and 5th fret harmonics on all of the strings at once to help you punctuate the open strumming parts during the harp solo. Lastly: (Whew!) Play the ending chord so that you get octaves of C. Play it (low to high):
