Here is my second (and probably last) post from Plant's
'Fate of Nations' album.  (Gotta love the cover of that
one).  This is the only song that really got a lot of
airtime on the radio, so you might even recognize some
of it.  Let me know what you think.

>>>Disclaimer<<<
I don't play violin, so some fairly important parts are
missing.  I would try to tab it from violin to guitar, but
I have no idea how to get a sound out of my Strat that
sounds anything like a violin.  Thus, I simply left the
violin parts out.  (Hey, we play guitar here anyway, so
who cares.  I think it still sounds okay.)


Robert Plant - 'Calling to You'

This is as close as I can get to the intro.
If anyone knows an accurate version, please post it.

Intro rhythm 1
E-|----------5--7------0------------------------------------------|
B-|-----------------3---------3--------------5--9---9s10s9--7--9--|
G-|------4-----------------------4--------4-----9---9s10s9--7--9--| Repeat
D-|---2-----------------------------2--2--------9---9s10s9--7--9--|
A-|---------------------------------------------------------------|
E-|---------------------------------------------------------------|

Played with Intro rhythm 1 second time (minus last two chords)
E-|--0-------------------------------------------------------------|
B-|----(0)---------------------------------------------------------|
G-|-----4b5rb4b5rb4b5rb4---2---------------------------------------|
D-|---------------------------2vvvvvvvvvvvvvvv---------------------|
A-|----------------------------------------------------------------|
E-|-----------------------------------------------0hhhhhhhhh-------|

Intro rhythm 2
E-|---------------------------------------------------|
B-|--9--9--9s10s9--7--9----9-9--9--9--9s10s9--7--9----|
G-|--9--9--9s10s9--7--9----9-9--9--9--9s10s9--7--9----|
D-|--9--9--9s10s9--7--9----9-9--9--9--9s10s9--7--9----|
A-|---------------------------------------------------|
E-|---------------------------------------------------|

Played with Intro rhythm 2 (first and only time)
E-|--0--------------------------------------|
B-|----(0)----------------------------------|
G-|-----4b5rb4b5rb4b5rb4----4b5rb4--2--4----|
D-|-----------------------------------------|
A-|-----------------------------------------|
E-|-----------------------------------------|

Then crash down into the riff that you here over and over again...

E-|------------------------------|
B-|------------------------------|   Repeat this as needed
G-|--1----1----1s2s1----0---1----|   throughout the song, usually
D-|--2----2----2s2s2----0---2----|   adding two quick E's as a pickup
A-|--2----2----2s3s2----0---2----|   note when this phrase is repeated.
E-|------------------------------|

    If you have more than one person playing, there is also
    a guitar playing repeated eighth notes on the low E string
    during this part, as well as some subtle strumming on bar
    chords (E,F,D) hidden under this part.

That riff often leads into this part, also the chorus (here I have
arranged a part played by several guitars into a single approximation)

E-|-------------------|
B-|------2---------2--|
G-|--2-2-2---2--2--2--|  Repeated several times
D-|--2-2-2---2--2--2--|  (4 times in the first case)
A-|--0-0-0---0--0--0--|
E-|-------------------|

The guitar previously playing the low E switches to an A
in that part as well.


Verse - repeat as needed

Played very chunky, with a clean accoustic strumming
E chords softly below it
E-|--------------------------|
B-|---------------------8vv--|
G-|--------------2------7vv--|
D-|--------------2------5vv--|
A-|--------------0-----------|
E-|--0----0--3b4-----0-------|

Played over the above at end of verse
E-|-----------------------------------------------------|
B-|-----------------------------------------------------|
G-|--7--7--7-9-7-6-7----7--6-7-9----7-6b7rb6b7rb6ss4-2--|
D-|-----------------------------------------------------|
A-|-----------------------------------------------------|
E-|-----------------------------------------------------|

(As I said before: sorry, no violin parts)

That should be all of the guitar parts, just piece them together.
The best way to do it:  Listen to the recording.

Questions, comments, additions, and corrections are welcome.
Have fun...
