============================================================================ You need to remember that Jimmy Page has this "terrible" habit of recording a lot of guitar parts all together. I find this a real challenge to play one part that covers everything. Sometimes they are just differant sounds but the same part, or, differant parts combined to make a complex score. I think it is possible that all of this (EVERYTHING!) is slide, though I play it just picking. I have simply placed parts and labled them so you can put them where they need to be. ============================================================================

Dancing Days by Led Zeppelin
This song has at least three guitars, tuned with their high E's to D: EADGBD
The opening rhythm is played almost exactly the same by two guitars: With this rhythm figure: And the slide on the third measure: d-0----------0--------------------------------------------------------- b-2-3-2--3p2-0---------------------------5/7\5------------------------- g-0-0-0--0---0--------------------------------------------------------- d-0-0-0--0---0---------------------------5/7\5------------------------- a---------------------------------------------------------------------- e----------------------------------------------------------------------
During the vocals, one guitar does this Chuck Berry like thing:
d---------------------------------------------------------------------- b---------------------------------------------------------------------- g--5--5--7-7--5---6-6-8-8-6--5-5-7-7-5-5------------------------------- d--3--3--3-3--3---4-4-4-4-4--3-3-3-3-3-3------------------------------- a---------------------------------------------------------------------- e----------------------------------------------------------------------
And during the "You know its alright" stuff: d---------------------------------------------------------------------- b---------------------------------------------------------------------- g-5-5-7-7-5---3-3--5-5--3--2-2-3-3-2--2-------------------------------- d-3-3-3-3-3---1-1--1-1--1--0-0-0-0-0--0-------------------------------- a---------------------------------------------------------------------- e----------------------------------------------------------------------
The other guitar plays this:
d--7--5--7-7--5---8--6--8-8--6---7--5--7--7--5------------------------- b--6--5--6-6--5---8--6--8-8--6---6--5--6--6--5------------------------- g--5--5--5-5--5---6--6--6-6--6---5--5--5--5--5------------------------- d---------------------------------------------------------------------- a---------------------------------------------------------------------- e---------------------------------------------------------------------- And during the "You know its allright" part:
d---7-5--7-7--5---5--3--5--5--3--3-2--3-3---5p3p2---------------------- b---6-5--6-6--5---5--3--5--5--3--3-2--3-3---2-------------------------- g---5-5--5-5--5---3--3--3--3--3--2-2--2-2---2-------------------------- d---------------------------------------------------------------------- a---------------------------------------------------------------------- e----------------------------------------------------------------------
The ascending riff during the vocals is:
d--------------8-----8-8/10---10/11\8---------------------------------- b----------5-8------------------------------17\15----17\14------------- g--------5----------------------------------17\15----17\14------------- d------5------------------------------------17\15----17\14------------- a--5/7----------------------------------------------------------------- e----------------------------------------------------------------------
The solo goes something like this: d---------------------------------------------------------------------- b---------------------------------------------------------------------- g---3-0-0-3-0-5-0-6----8/10--8/10--8--8/10--8/10-8--8/10-8/10-8-6-8-8/10 d---------------------------------------------------------------------- a---------------------------------------------------------------------- e----------------------------------------------------------------------
d---------------------------------------------------------------------- b---------------------------------------------------------------------- g-2/5------------------------------------------------------------------ d---------------------------------------------------------------------- a---------------------------------------------------------------------- e----------------------------------------------------------------------
Then just play the rythym riff up here:
d---11--12--11-12p11p9------------------------------------------------- b---------------------------------------------------------------------- g---------------------------------------------------------------------- d---------------------------------------------------------------------- a---------------------------------------------------------------------- e----------------------------------------------------------------------
That should be enough to get you going. Enjoy, CHUCK
