    ^^^ That's not Jimmy Page in that photo, BTW.

    The Battle of Evermore has guitar in it also, but certainly can be played with just mandolins.

    Little confused since Jim's tabs are for mandolin. The link above is for the PDF for Voodoo Child. Try working off of that as a start.

    The dB´s do a very cool cover of Dylan´s "Positively 4th Street" with Peter Holsapple on the mandolin.

    A mandolin-only version, sans vocals, by the very same JP impersonator, apparently in the very same photo/video session:

    I really think anything can be played on Mandolin (along w/ bano, fiddle, etc).

    I regularly play the following:

    "Kiss Me Deadly" Lita Ford
    "Horror Business" Misfits
    "I Tuned into a Martian" Misfits
    "Boys From County Hell" Pogues - Hey it's a rocker!
    "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" Cyndi Lauper

    I've always wanted to try Hazy Shade of Winter

    How about some Jimmy Ryan? (this song is actually entitled "Hardtime")

    Rod Stewart's Maggie Mae is one of the best produced recordings ever and features a powerful mando run. This is the song that made me want to learn mandolin. It only took 30+ years to actually happen

    REM - Losing My Religion
    Butch Walker - 3 Kids in Brooklyn and a few other songs on the Sycamore Meadows album

    Iron & Wine has a good bit of mando and banjo stuff.

    "Manic Depression", "Day In The Life", "Black Hole Sun", "White Rabbit", "Where the Streets Have No Name", and "Locomotive Breath" are on the set list of a guitarist I gig with.

    We were out the other night and decided to go for one of those now for something completely different moments and ended up playing Alice Cooper's "I'm Eighteen." Worked pretty good on the mando but it took the lady on cello a bit to get the hang of it.
