Maddog Posted July 9, 2011 Share Posted July 9, 2011 Hi everyone, I'm new here and I hope that this post is both 'in order' and in the appropriate area. I'm on the wrong side of 50 and until recently, had not touched any of my guitars since my late teens. My son actually discovered them stashed away, and demanded that I play something. I have been shamed into it, but strangely have found taking it up again has been very therapeutic relief from the stresses of my day-job. Anyway, it's taken a while and lots of practice to get to the point where I am happy to tackle some tunes from my beloved Led Zepp. I usually use UltimateGuitar-dot-com as my source for chords and tab for music that I can't figure out myself (which is most of it). Most of the entries on this site are not official - just people's interpretations. Unfortunately, for every Led Zepp entry I have tried to view, I get the following message: This tablature contains content from a third party publisher and has been blocked by the Music Publishers Association in your country. I have some problems with this:I am located in the UK - the same country Led Zeppelin are fromI don't have any intention of 'performing' any of these songs - for money or otherwiseI'm having trouble believing that Jimmy Page would endorse the blocking of these interpretations of his music for people who simply want to learn the music. After all, it's well known that as a lad, Jimmy practiced the styles of his guitar heroes - the Blues legends from the US South - without anyone stopping him or claiming any rights infringements. Does anyone know if the blocking of Led Zepp music on this site is indeed the work of Jimmy and/or Robert Plant (or someone on their behalf? Perhaps Jimmy and Robert might like to make this music available to those of us who would liek to learn their music and styles? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
