Robert Plant And The Strange Sensation - All The King's Horses
from the album "Mighty Rearranger"
written by Robert Plant

Right, this is the toughest song to date that I've tabbed by ear.  Tough because even
I could tell it was in an open tuning, I wasn't sure what that tuning was.  I started
open C when I heard the droning C chord at the very end of the intro.  So I started 
a bit with Powertabs, my personal favorite song-learning and -writing program, and voila!
have what I believe to be a totally accurate interpretation of the intro right here.  
 Don't forget to tune in open C (CGCGCe).

I love it, using Open C tuning was important to get that awesome low C note in there, but a few things I noticed, if I may:

OK, my comment was way too long, apparently. In it I said I didn't hear the second "2" in the parts that have: 0h2h4, 0h2. Just the four notes (maybe even only the middle 3). I don't think the F chord (x55555) has the high e string in there. And I think the fifth note in the last part is a very low C instead of that middle C (0 2, 0 2 0)

Great work though. You should tab the whole thing. If you don't I just might. ;)

The 0h2h4p(0) riffs are hard to hear clearly because RP's guitarist plays so quick--or is it RP himself? I know he was the one who came up with Bron-Yr-Aur and that was in CACGCE--and all that's used aside from the initial pick is hammer-ons and pull-offs. Which is why with Powertabs I have the p(0) transcribed as ghost notes, because it's so hard to hear. Im trying to listen to the song as hard as I can and tab as accurately as I can, but I've never done a song before by ear without any pre-existing internet tabs to work off of. You may be right about that F chord though, that high A on the E-string may be superlative.
And I am working on the whole song. around saving up for a Nissan 300ZX and going to college :)
