============================================================================ 
 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.

From: ceh1@acpub.duke.edu (Charles Eric Horowitz) 
 
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---------------------------5/75------------------------- 
g-0-0-0--0---0--------------------------------------------------------- 
d-0-0-0--0---0---------------------------5/75------------------------- 
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---10/118---------------------------------- 
b----------5-8------------------------------1715----1714------------- 
g--------5----------------------------------1715----1714------------- 
d------5------------------------------------1715----1714------------- 
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----------------------------------------------------------------------
