Gallows Pole Bass Tab

   
From: Ryan William Klein 
"Gallows Pole" Bass-Tab By Led Zeppelin
Off Led Zeppelin III
Transcribed By Ryan Klein

Well folks as far as I can tell,
there are only 4 parts to this song:

  S  S  S  S S  S  S  S  S  S  S  S
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
--3--5--3--5-5--5--5--5--3--5--3--5--

 S  S  S  S  S  S  S  S  S  S  S  S
-----------------------------------
-----------------------------------
-----------------------------------
-5--5--5--5--3--5--3--5--5--5--5--5

This repeats a few times with an
occasional G-D or C-D transition

Then when the "Hangman" chorus
comes in:

 Q  E  S  S  E  S  S  Q   Q  E  S
----------4----------------------
-7--5--7-----------4--5---7------
-------------5--7------------5--7
---------------------------------
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/led_zeppelin/gallows_pole_btab.html ]
  S  Q+  S  S   S  Q    E  S  S
------------4-----------------4--
--4--5---5------5--7----5--7-----
---------------------------------
---------------------------------

 E  S  S  Q  E   S  S   E   S  S
---------------------------------
-------4--5--5---4--2------------
-5--7-------------------5---3--2-
---------------------------------

Then back to the G-A-G-A-G-G-G-G
stuff again


The final part is thrown in at
various parts in the song, and
pretty much dominates the ending:


   E  S  S   S  S  S   S  S  S  S
----------------------------------
---5--4--2------------------------
-------------5--3--2--------------
-----------------------5--3--5--3-

I hope this helps.  It may not be
right, but I think its close to
the actual thing.
