Day 49 (album cover 4 of 10): Stairway to Heaven, Led Zeppelin
Again, everyone learning guitar at some point learns this famous riff. This is a particulary impressive live version of “Stairway to heaven” with absolutely amazing rock guitars at the end. It is really cool how the lead guitarist has an amazing electric guitar with two necks on it, one for a twelve string the other for a 6 string. During the guitar solo he picks both the six and the twelve so I guess this clever piece of technology allows him to quickly change from one guitar configuration to another. Truly worth taking the time to watch if you like vintage rock and roll.
