Ok,this is my first submitted tab,so bear with me!!

I noticed that all the tablature for Led Zeppelin's 'The Rain Song' was all 
done in an 'Open A' tuning. This tab I use is done in standard tuning,and is 
actually quite easy. I think it will save everyone the trouble of having to 
tune their gats to this Open A.
For the best effect,play on a nylon-strung classical guitar,or if using an 
electric,use the neck pick-ups.

That is the introduction,which also forms the basis of the song. You play 
that 3 times,then you play these 3 chords aggressively...

G Major

F Major

C Major

This is played during the lyrics 'I've felt the coldness of my winter....'

Then go back to the slide from the 2nd stave and play from there.

The ending is quite complicated,but like with all things,stick with it and 
you'll get it.

Ok,so I know it may be hard to read,but like I said,its my first time 
tabbing.If you have any queries on the song,feel free to email me at 
pro_guitarist@hotmail.com.

I am currently figuring out the Stairway to Heaven Live version,from the 
Song remains the Same video.

Keep rocking,
