We’ve done four already but now we’re steady and then they went 1, 2, 3, 4…

In the meantime, The Ocean by Led Zeppelin is a great way to keep the fire stoked. You’ll love the meatiness of the hammer-ons from the flatted 7th to the root note at the beginning of the riff. The hammer-ons set up a powerful approach to the root note – or tonic. Descending the C Major Triad comes next. Then, a pause before the turnaround. The turnaround consists of an approach the the flatted 7th via the fourth and fifth of the A minor pentatonic scale and then again to the root note. Dropping down to the 3rd, C sharp, comes next. This movement anticipates the movement up to the root note again in the oddball measure of 3/4 time at the end of the 4 bar phrase. The intro riff is a 4 bar phrase beginning with 3 bars of 4 and ending with one bar of 3.
