The track features an extended droning introductory section led by Jimmy Page on

guitar, which also includes low sustaining bass pedals played by John Paul Jones and
also featured John Bonham playing a tympano; doing long extended single stroke
rolls and random single hits, while he changed the pitch of the drum using the foot
pedal. Page used a Gizmotron to create the droning effects and sliding solo at the
beginning of the song,[2] (Page would play a similar section to the intro of "In the
Evening" during "Dazed and Confused" using a violin bow, as can be heard on
bootleg recordings of Led Zeppelin's concert at Tampa Stadium in 1973).
