This is an unreleased version of an arrangement of mine for Stairway to Heaven. It started as something fun to do with a student and I just really enjoyed playing it. I hope you like it.

Thanks, I'll have tab for it available someday for sure, keep checking back! I think I'm going to start scanning handwritten tab and turning them in pdf's, that will make it all easier. Can I be honest? Keying in tab is only done when I have a deadline and just have to do it. Wait, I said I'd be honest. I avoid it like the plaque unless I have to do it for a book or some other deadline. I love to handwrite tab though, but honesty again, my handwriting can be a little pathetic, but if I take my time, it's legible. 

I appreciate that you want it though, and I plan to eventually release this along with some others on CD and have tab avaialble for the whole CD. Thanks, Ross Nickerson

Did you know if you sing the theme song from Gilligan's Island along with the beginning of StH... it works??

You know, I played this backwards through my iPod, and I thought I heard Lester Flatt say "Kiss the Devil". I still think it's very cool.

Great job, Ross!  Was this played in std G-tuning?   Are you using T-I-M on the same string for the rapid triplet phrases?

Ross you sure are an inspiration to all of us beginners.  This was an awesome arrangement nice to hear things other than bluegrass from the banjo one thing I would wish from those that have multiple banjos is to indicate which banjo they are playing on the song.  Just a wish I guess.  Thanks again
