Being born and raised in CA, I live in MT now, I picked Going to California. It really reminds me of what it was like there way back when.

Black Dog. (as my forum nickname obviously suggests) Rock and Roll following just a tiniest bit behind.

This is probably the most difficult album for me to chose the best song, but i've decided to chose The Battle of Evermore (don't know why).

If there where more choices the list would be:

  1. The Battle Of Evermore
  2. Rock And Roll
  3. Stairway To Heaven
  4. Misty Mountain Hop
  5. Black Dog

Rock and Roll is the most fun to play, just 'cos it's fast, exciting and pretty easy to improvise with. However, I voted for Stairway to Heaven, since it's got soul and the most expression.

I like Stairway to Heaven. But I also really dig When the Levee Breaks. When I was in my last band called Engine Room. We did a split version of When the Levee Breaks.....than in the middle of it we would go write into In My Time of Dying. It worked like a charm because there both in the same key.....and have the slide-guitar in them!!!!

I give the nod to "Black Dog." Let me know your choice and tell me why. I am very interested. :D

Levee....just such a strong powerful song.

"Battle of Evermore" only 8 frickin' percent with my vote!That was the essence of the band to me...in the earlier days.

Edited to add:

Their brilliance was partly in having so many different facets, each one displaying a different essence, a different strength...no that I thought more about it, "Battle" was just one facet of the near-perfect diamond that was lz...

I'm pretty sure they aren't in the same key...the tuning is different according to all the books I've seen.

Tuning for Levee = E A C F A C or F A C F A C (I've seen both)

Tuning for Time of dying = E A E A C# E

You're right. The way I did it was I used a decapo on the 2nd fret. Standard tuning. :)

I think "Stairway" is still one of the best, so that is why I chose it. I can't seem to get tired of the song, it is so lovely!

Well i picked when the levee breaks just love the vibe always have.Its a hard choice and honestly 30 years ago i would have picked Stairway or 20 years ago maybe Black Dog a lot of air play makes my taste change dont get me wrong still love those songs but am ready for something new . Robert , Jimmy , John,Jason thats a hint.New would be good.Love you guys either way though
