(x ^ y)     Bend up, from x to y            if notes are in parenthesises
(x v y)     Bend down, from x to y          they are hit once.
([x] ^ y)   Play y bent, [don't play x]
(x - y)     Pull off from y to x
(x h y)     Hammer-on from x to y
~~x,y       Trill x and y
 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
