In this lesson we are going to take a look at the main riff to Led Zeppelin’s version of “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You”.
Using an arpeggiated picking pattern in A minor, this opening riff of Jimmy Page’s arrangement of “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” creates a very haunting yet beautiful sound.
In this Babe I’m Gonna Leave You guitar lesson I will show you how to play that gorgeous descending arpeggiated picking intro and verse note-for-note.
Pay close attention to letting the top melody notes ring for as long as possible. Especially the melody notes held with the first finger. It is a good exercise in coordination if you can keep your first finger down between the chord changes in which it holds the last melody note..
In addition to those frethand challenges, there is also quite a bit of string skipping in the picking hand. At the beginning of the lesson I do talk about how I approach arpeggiated picking on the guitar. I feel that this method is the most economical and the most comfortable in the long run. However, if you have never played in this way it might be a little awkward in the beginning. But if you always approach your picking patterns in this way you will eventually play every cross string arpeggiated pattern this way without thinking about it.
So take your time when attempting to put all of this together. Once again it is about letting those notes ring out for as long as possible, especially the top melody notes!
If you want to learn the entire song simply help me get this video 600 YouTube likes and after it meets that goal I will then teach the entire song note-for-note.
OK I will see you guys back here with the full song lesson soon. In the meantime make sure you master this awesome riff first. #babeimgonnaleaveyouguitarlesson #ledzeppelin #guitarcovers
