Don't read this, because it actually works.You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday, by the love of your life.Tomorro w will be the best day of your life. However, if you don't post this, you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this, don't stop.This is so scary. Post this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done, press f6 and your lovers name will come up on the screen .This is so scary, because it works
Thanks Love#1G

I can see an old friend slapping his thighs to the beat of this song . Those days are gone, but better days are ahead for everyone.
By the way Joe... Bert did not write this . some old public domain celtic,folk tune redone my times .
Jimmy rocks them all !!!
they could at least give Bert Jansch a nod in similar tracks, since he wrote this
Love this...first time I've heard it on Pandora.
Gerardo Gonzalez from Mexico,,ther e will never b another band like led zeppelin!!!! ! ! ! !
Believe it or not pink floyd, black sabbath, beatles, all had a song or two similar in sound and mood, funny its all british groups, even the stones had a song similar I think, all great bands, but this is a sweet song no doubt.
Great!
Black Mountain Side is just one of the songs that contribute to the mysticism of Zep. No other bands were writing songs of this nature around that time period. This is why I put Jimmy Page in the top of the most influential musicians of all time.
Chse's mom say's "All of my youth is in this 8 track tape...and my soulmate, who is in Heaven"...PE A C E !

Originally recorded by The Yardbirds (under a different title).
Imagine this coming up at the jam sesh!
Alice in chains uses the "DADGAD" tuning in a few of their songs as well. Listen to "Over now". Although the song isnt nearly as complex as this fine Zep song.

alwasy love this tune

It's "DADGAD," or D modal tuning, an alternate tuning most associated with Celtic music, though it has also found use in rock and other genres. Instead of the standard EADGBE tuning, the six guitar strings are tuned, from low to high, DADGAD. When tuning to DADGAD from standard tuning, this is accomplished by tuning the first, second and sixth strings down a whole tone (two half-steps).
Still one of the most difficult songs to play on the guitar; it shows Jimmy Page's skill. The tuning is some strange open tuning, that's one of the tricks to this song.
