Subject: TAB: Ship of Fools (Robert Plant)

This song is all feel...well, tone helps too. Doug Boyle plays guitar on this 
and creates an ethereal mood that is the key to the song.

It is best played with the fingers instead of a pick.

Set your amp to maximum clean with no compression (this will allow the 
dynamics to sound right). Set your reverb to high and very little or no delay.

The intro is made up of little triads that should be pretty straight forward. 
Don't rush it.

The verse continues to be sparse. You may need to add a few more notes in if 
you don't have a keyboardist. Just follow the chords.

The solo is a masterpiece of maturity and feel. No shredding here. I have 
notated certain notes in parentheses that are very quiet. Some are so quiet 
that you could consider them implied. Once again maintain the mood. In bar 
XX of the solo I have notated two bend and releases. These are actually silent 
bends and releases with the notes pre-bent a half step and released to the 
correct pitch...youUll get it when you hear it.

There are some sections missing I believe, but the majority of it is there. I 
have transcribed this in parts over a long period of time, which is why it is 
kind of broken up.

If anyone works out the tune based on my transcription, let me know. And if you 
work out any parts that I have omitted, let me know also.
