Don't know if your much of a led zep fan, I was wondering if you could decifer some of the scales and progressions in the song "In my time of dying " off the "Physical Graffiti" album. There are some smoking fast blues licks in that song. Maybe we could have a Jimmy Page solo style lesson.

Sorry Kris, missed this message.

I've not listened to this for a long time, but "In my time of dying" is played with a slide, on a guitar tuned to A major. (E, A, E, A, C#, E). I'm crap with a slide, so I've never actually pulled the solo for this apart, but from memory, I think it stays in natural minor / pentatonic minor, with a few chromatic passages in. This is the same in both solos.

The song is definately a delta blues homage, it's a cover of a Blind Willie Johnson song (can't remember the name of the original). The riffs are also quite reminiscent of "When The Levee Breaks" in its style.
