Babe I’m Gonna Leave You was originally written in the late 1950s by a folk singer-songwriter called Anne Johannsen. Joan Baez then covered the song which appears as the opening track on her live album ‘Joan Baez in Concert, Part one’. Led Zeppelin then covered the song in 1969 for their self-titled debut album ‘Led Zeppelin’, and it went on to become one of their best-known songs.
This is a song of epic proportions, and not for the fainthearted to learn from start to finish. It’s not that it’s really difficult to play the parts, it’s all the twists and turns and endless nuances in the picking hand that make it so complicated. You absolutely must listen over and over again to the track as you learn it to make sure you’re getting it right.
