First of all, I know that a lot of people that play hate this song and I promise to not try to play it around anyone that feels that way about it. I am pretty much a beginner/novice and this song gets into some new techniques and concepts for me. Could anyone recommend an accurate transcription for Stairway that is either online or in a book? I do not mind paying for a good tab that I can follow if need be. I have been noodling with the song off and on for a little while and have seen all sorts of transcriptions for it but they all seem to differ someplace. I first got into the song just strumming the chords from Led Zeppelin Complete Lyric and Chord Songbook from Alfred Music. It gives you chords and lyrics but no tab, pickng patterns, solo notes, etc. I would like to learn as much of the song as I can because it gets into a lot techniques that I am just just beginning to try to scratch the surface on such as finger picking, arpregios, and the solo. I figure all of these skills should translate well to other tunes. The song also has some chords/voicings that I had not seen before. Up to this point I have mostly just learned to strum simple songs and try to play in time. I sort of look at this song as my Winter project to work on. The song is a monster to me with the length, parts, and techniques.
