Written while the band was touring, the riff of “Whole Lotta Love” is brutally simple and effective. Despite this, ensure that you use the pick with care and palm mute with the right hand so that the riff grooves like the original.
As for the left hand, pay attention to the slide on the B note of the low E string and to the quarter-tone bends on the A string. Finally, be careful with the start of the riff, which kicks off on the “and” of the 3rd beat. Don’t hesitate to activate the Guitar Pro countdown to keep time with the tablature provided in the article.
