Led zepplin songs are still played a lot on the radio. They are classic tunes that will live on and on especially Stairway to Heaven. That is a Must Learn song for guitar players.
Led Zepplin was labeled Heavy Metal but they were just a Rock group. That was how they sounded, they didn’t try to create a new sound fad.
I actually like Jimmy Page’s acoustic playing better than his electric style but that’s my opinion. He’s very good at both.
This song could be in the beginner song list because it only uses two chords. You just vary the rhythm at certain points.
If you listen carefully you will hear that these chords are played in different positions along with extra fill-in notes added to them. The chords are still E and A but with embellishment.
They change so fast you couldn’t put that many chord diagrams on a page. Let your ears be your guide and find these other positions and voicings.

This is a typical Rock song. The lyrics don’t matter it’s the beat and the guitar that makes this song along with Roger Plant’s powerful voice.
