    LED ZEPPELIN - BLACK MOUNTAIN SIDE (Page) From LED ZEPPELIN
                   album. Released on January 12th 1969.
   
    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Tabbed by:PJVillanueva





    This instrumental by Page is based on a traditional English
    folk song which was recorded by Bert Jansch in his 1966 JACK 
    ORION album with the title of Blackwater Side. For me, this  
    is a magic theme. It is full of time signature changes and
    Jimmy used a dropped DADGAD tuning all of which make it sound 
    as a wonderful broken record. 
    


  D|----0-- -(0)--- ------- ----0--|----0-- -(0)--- ------- ----0--|

  D|------------4------------------|------------4------------------|
  A|----------------2--------------|----------------2--------------|
  D|0-----------------------3------|0-----------------------3------|

    This is the main pattern of the song. The note in brackets is
    actually played, although it sounds very brief or even muted 
    most of the time and I thought it'd be a good idea leaving that 
    note out of the tab because it's much easier to master this way 
    and it sounds fine all the same. (Add it anytime you want).



   Remember to tune your guitar: DADGAD


          Low E (6th string) down to D (Check with 4th)
          Low A (5th string) remains the same
              D (4th string) remains the same
              G (3rd string) remains the same
              B (2nd string) down to A (Check with 5th)
         High E (1st string) down to D (Check with 4th or 6th)
