You are welcom. Good for you getting a handle on it! Well done. :).
[QUOTE=goldy54]By the way...Just curious what you said about Led Zep's "You Shook Me". Did Page sing that???

No, as usual Plant sang & Page played guitar (slide specifically for that line). But he doubled the vocal line on the guitar.

Which meant if we wanted to cover it effectively (or even somewhat closely :p ), we'd have to have that happening. Since we didn't have a singer in the band I figured I'd give pretending to be Plant & Page at the same time a try. Lots of hours in the bedroom, basement & garage practicing that one. :)

In later blues bands I had singers. Eventually one that could also play blues licks on the harmonica fairly well, so it was even closer to the Zep version. But I learned a lot in those early days having to do it myself. Have fun!
