Here are some of the basics for Gallows Pole the way I play it

 

Ted DaCosta

 

 

Page plays similar riffs to this basic progression

e------------0--0-0-0---------5--------------------------------------------

B---2-0-2--2-0--1-1-1--1---3--0--------------------------------------------

G---0-0-0--0-0--0-0-0--0---0-----------------------------------------------

D---2-2-2--2----2---2--2---4-----------------------------------------------

A--------------------------------------------------------------------------

E--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hang man, hang man....

 

 

e--3-3-3--2-2--2-----------------------------------------------------------

B--0-0-0--3-3--3-----------------------------------------------------------

G--0-0-0--2-2--2-----------------------------------------------------------

D--0-0-0--0-0--0-----------------------------------------------------------

A--2-2-2-------------------------------------------------------------------

E--3-3-3-------------------------------------------------------------------

riding many a ....

 

 

Now when the mandolin comes in the following standard open chords are played

 

A G D G A D G

Hang man, hang man hold it a little while

 

A G D G D

I think I see my brother coming riding many a mile

 

 

 

Next part lightly muted A chord

 

 

e--------

B--------

G--2-----

D--2-----

A--0-----

E--------

 

Brother did you get me some silver ....

 

 

Next part uses this type of riff

 

A

e----------------------------------------------

B----------------------------------------------

G---2-----2---2-2-2-2-2------------------------

D---2-----2---2-2-2-2-2------------------------

A---0-----0---0-0-0-0-0------------------------

E-3----3---------------------------------------

muted lightly

 

Brother I brought you some silver...

 

Next change follows above riff

 

A C D A

Yes I've brought you to keep you from the gallows pole...

 

 

Also I saw some discussion on the line

 

"save me from the wrath of this man" this sounds correct to me

 

 

 

--

 

Gallows Pole X - percussive tone with no pitch

Led Zeppelin III ) - bends

/ - slide

~~~ - vibrato

^ - hammer on / pull off

 

To play this, page uses a 6 string acoustic to play the main part. And

a distorted electric guitar in treble for the solo

 

Main Riff:

 

e|---|----------------0--------0-----------5----|

B|---|---2--0--2------2--1-----1----/3--3------o|

G|---|---0-----0---0-----0--0--0-----0--0-------| repeat

D|-2-|---2-----2---2-----2--2-------/4--4-------|

A|-0-|-------------------------------0---------o|

E|---|------------------------------------------|

 

 

All I have at the "Hangman, Hangman..

..brother coming many a mile" is

mandolin.

 

Here is the silver/gold part.

 

e|-------------------------------------|

B|------------------------------------o|

G|-------------------------------------| repeat

D|-----2-----2--X--X--X--X--X--X--X----|

A|-----0-----0--X--X--X--X--X--X--X---o|

E|--3-----3----------------------------|

 

 

and the solo...
