Rodrigo y Gabriela - Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin cover)

A few people have asked how to play this cover of 'Stairway to heaven'.  A lot of it is
to the Zeppelin original and a lot more interesting to play.  The timing isn't perfectly
out in the tab but if you listen to the track I'm sure you'll be able to get it.  The
thing you need to know is that the * symbol means a natural harmonic.

*Update* Having watched a few youtube videos of Rodrigo playing the version, I've come
with some updates and think that it is practically spot on now.  Sorry to all the people
had learnt this version or have been playing this tab stolen by other websites.

Oh yeah, didn't notice that. Bit of a typo. Cheers for pointing it out.

Have heard they're good live.
