I remember this being one of the first songs I was really proud to be able to play. Looking back now, I wasn’t as good as I thought, I still can’t play it right. Regardless, this song is just a perfect example of all the elements that come together to create a great Led Zeppelin song. From the opening lines curtesy of the late, great John Bonham: “We’ve done four already but now we’re steady / And then they went: One, two, three, four” through to one of Jimmy Page’s best and heaviest riffs, elevated by Robert Plant’s unreal vocal range, and all tied¬†together by the steadiest rhythm section in the business (Bonzo and John Paul Jones). Quality stuff man, enjoy.
