                The type font I used is Lucida Console on the notepad program.  
This information will prove useful if nothing lines up properly in this tab.

Open G tuning: Low to high DGDGBD

Okay, so, skipping the intro and going straight to the riff . . .

     w/ slide                                      w/ pick and fingers

So, the first measure you use the slide, but the second measure you don't.  
However, I think he plays that second measure with his pick, index, and middle fingers.

Do this riff many times before going to the twelve bar blues section below.

Note: you could probably ignore the notes on the high E string in the measure above.  
I think Page hit those on accident, as I can't hear him hitting them in the rest of the song.
They did, however, provide me with the clue I needed to identify the correct chord inversion, 
which is why I put them in the tab.

Alternate between the riff and the twelve bar blues section for the whole song.
There's some variations on what is written here, as Page would improvise a bit around 
the general idea for songs, especially an impromptu jam such as this one probably was.

My apologies if this comes out crooked or not lined up properly; this is my first time posting a tab.
I suggest copying and pasting to the Notepad program and deselecting the Word Wrap function under the Edit menu.
