Learning to Climb the Stairway to Heaven

Sunday, August 24th, 2008

Usually one of the first songs learned by the budding guitarist, I however only just decided a few days ago that it was about bloody time I actually learnt how to play Stairway to Heaven, now that I’ve started geting into Led Zeppelin a little more.

So Stairway is from their fourth album, which I keep telling Fletch is their best, but he won’t have any of it — although admittedly, I’m yet to hear his favourite, Led Zeppelin III, in order to compare. Hope to acquire it sometime soon.

To learn, I thought I might see if there were any tutorial videos on YouTube. I found one, but the guy seemed to be getting it obviously wrong in a few places. What better time to do my own video than while I’m learning myself? So I found a tab which seems to be passably accurate, and set up my camera.

Only just getting my fingers around the introduction right now. It’s quite a well crafted piece I must say; hats off to Jimmy Page.

Here’s the tab for the first part of the into anyway:


And the video:

Enjoy! More to come…
