Well, someone requested this song the other day, so I   
figured I'd sit down and learn the damn thing. (BTW,
thanks for the origional chord progression.)

As for how many times to play each part, listen to the
recording.  This is taking far to long as is, and I don't
have the time to tab out every measure.  Just listen for
phrases that sound familiar and string them together.

  
  Coverdale/Page - Take a Look at Yourself

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/c/coverdale_page/take_a_look_at_yourself_tab.html ]
Then go on to one of the signature phrases of the song:

D-|--9--slide--2---2-|-------2-----|--9--slide--2---2-|-------2-----|
A-|--7---------0-----|-------------|--7---------0-----|-------------|
E-|------------------|-------------|------------------|-------------|

B-|------------------------------0-2-0-2---0-2-------|
G-|------6-------------------------------------------|
D-|--6-6-6----6-6-7----2-4-6---2---------------------|
A-|--6-6-4----6-6-7----2-4-6-------------------------|
E-|--4-4------4-4-5----0-2-4-------------------------|

At other places, instead of ending with the
picked notes, this phrase can also end with a
descending series of power chords: A5, F#5, E5.

Pretty much the rest of the song just mixes those phrases
in different ways, and since it would take me a year to 
say specifically where everything goes, I'll let you figure 
that out.

The really short chords in the middle of the song
that get muted really fast after being struck I think
have the following formations:

   E       B       A
======  ======  ======       Right offhand I don't
xx999x  xx987x  xx765x       remember the order, though.    


As for the solo near the end, I fear that I might be terribly    
butchering Page's beautiful solo, but here is a rough estimate
of it:
    
Solo:

E-|----------------------------------------------------------------|
B-|-------------------------------7s9----9s7--------------9p7------|
G-|----------------------6-7s9---------------------9---9------9----|
D-|-----9b11rb9--7--6---------9----------------6h9---9-------------|

E-|----------------7----------------------7b9rb7------------------------|
B-|---7--s9---10-----10p9---9-------9-10---------10-9----9-7b9rb7-------|
G-|-9---------------------9----------------------------------------9----|
D-|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
                                                                               
                                                                               
E-|------------------------7----------------7-----------|

G-|-9---------------9-----------------------------------|
D-|-------------------9---------------------------------|
A-|-----------------------------------------------------|
E-|-----------------------------------------------------|
                                                                               
I hope that didn't suck too bad.  Remember, as always, repeat
the phrases as necessary.

Good Luck!  And (as always) questions, comments, corrections, and
additions are very welcome.

PS - The next song from this album I want to tab in is 
     'Take me for a little while'.  If anyone knows any
     of it, anything at all, beyond the intro, please 
     email me.  This is harder than hell as is...

Thanx
