    Thanks - I've now got Early Morning Rain by Gordon Lightfoot stuck in my head - "You can't jump a jet plane, like you can a freight train, so I'd best be on my way, in the early morning rain..."

    Cheers, Jeff

    It's funny, but I keep thinking of this one.
    Morning Dew. Sad but all too true.

    Not "Singing in the rain" or "Raindrops are falling on my head"?

    Or, alternatively, "Wringing in the Seine".

    Aaargh! The Rain Song!

    The music book Led Zeppelin Complete gives the music and chords to play The Rain Song in normal tuning, however it was never played that way having always been done in an open tuning.

    Compared to the standard tuning version the open tuning way is far easier to play.

    Can you guess who wanted to learn to play it and slavishly slogged away at it until he could play it exactly as laid down (incorrectly) in Zed Zeppelin Complete? Yes, that idiot was me.

    Cheers, Jeff

    One of a million metal songs I'm guessing.

    I think the problem with a lot of those books is that some poor musician is given a copy of the album and works out the music on a piano, which is then converted to standard tuning guitar MS or Tab. Combine that with the fact that most rock musicians rarely tune their instruments to concert pitch (or didn't in the old days), it's surprising what they produce is playable at all.

    I'd have thought "Red face (sorry - sails) in the sunset" was more appropriate for that particular POTUS. ;)

    How did you resist giving this the title 'River Banksy'?
