I've always been a big fan of Mr Page.

Playing my Forum IV again.

Thanks so much for listening!

UPDATE

Well it would seem that Mr Page's publishing company doesn't want me to have any audio in that clip I put up on Youtube.  I've uploaded it to Vimeo.  We'll see if that makes any difference

And you do a darn good job of it.
There is no 100% correct on this one, Page sometimes gets sloppy.
I learned this one awhile back at the promptings of a friend, then promptly forgot about it mostly cause the tuning is so far off of what most of us might normally play. However, if one was tempted to leave the guitar in that tuning for a week or so, there is a lot to explore.
I think it is CACGCE ??

Yup, that's the tuning.  It's definitely not something I use every day but it is fun to fool around with.  Thanks Mike

Great job, Denis.

This elicited memories of watching "The Song Remains the Same" for the first time back in the day.

It lends itself well to Travis picking, doesn't it?

By the way, there are several songs that this tuning lends itself well to. Jimmy Page also used it in the song "Friends". Drop the low A down to G and you can do an interpretation of U2's song "Mothers of the Disappeared" which closes off their landmark album "Joshua Tree" with a mournful but powerful droning dirge. Buzzing strings also suit this tuning well, giving the guitar a sort of didgeridoo effect.

I learned the tune from some tabs I had found in a magazine we used to have back in the pre-internet days call Guitar For The Practicing Musician.  They usually had all sorts of speed metal type music tabbed out but every so often they'd put out an acoustic edition.  Love those alternate tunings though.

Thanks for listening Neil.
