The Rain Song - Led Zeppelin sur Guitariff.net
The following is the correct tuning used by Jimmy Page for the Rain Song: 6th- C 5th- G 4th- D 3rd- G 2nd- C 1st- D The chords in the song then become much easier to play. this is what I could figure out by ear....I'm not sure if it is right...but it sounds right.... beginning.. strum a G5, then a Gmaj7(no3rd) then ------------------- ----6-6-4-3-4------ ----4-4-4-4-3------ ------------5------

I use downstrokes for just about all the notes except for those noted "^" near the end, where the different accent of an upstoke is important to colour these D notes. I have used "=" to highlight certain places where I let a note let ring after a chord rather than re-strike the note. (Because I think re-striking sounds too strong in these places.)
