The recording is in F and it sure sounds better in F, so just
use your index finger in barr?e in the 1st position. Maybe this is do
to that there are open strings in E. The way a verse of 'Rock Me' is played
is (with a definite shuffle feeling or in 12/8):

Riff 1 (instrumental)
Riff 2 (vocals)
Riff 1 (instrumental)
Riff 2 (vocals)
Riff 1 (instrumental)
Riff 3 (turnaround with vocals)

Please note the power chord in riff 2 so Jimmy Page couldn't have been
first but on the other hand all these guys listened to Robert Johnson, who
listened to Lonnie Johnson and Son House, who listened to Blind Lemon
Jefferson who listened to ... ;-)
