Going To California by Led Zeppelin | acoustic
An acoustic guitar lesson on how to play "Going to California" by Led Zeppelin from their 1971 album Led Zeppelin Four.
Over the years this is by far the most requested song that I've gotten.
The combination of the two guitars and mandolin is quite complex and really beautiful, but It makes it hard to play anything that comes close to the recording!
It's also really hard to separate the guitar parts and the mandolin in the mix so the song is a real challenge to figure out!
I did the demo with two guitars and kind of mixed in the guitar parts with some of the mandolin lines here and there.
I'm not saying that I got every single lick, but I think I got enough so it sounds close.
If you learn all the variations in this lesson you can then mix and match them however you want.
This has always been one of my absolute favorite songs and I had a really great time working it out, recording the demo and planning the lesson.
I hope you enjoy it, I hope the lesson helps and good luck learning the tune! Cheers
