This book provides guitar transcriptions for all the songs on Led Zeppelin's Mothership 2-CD compilation. To give the full list, that's: Good Times Bad Times, Communication Breakdown, Dazed and Confused, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, Whole Lotta Love, Ramble On, Heartbreaker, Immigrant Song, Since I've Been Loving You, Rock and Roll, Black Dog, When the Levee Breaks, Stairway to Heaven, The Song Remains the Same, Over the Hills and Far Away, D'yer Mak'er, No Quarter, Trampled Underfoot, Houses of the Holy, Kashmir, Nobody's Fault But Mine, Achilles' Last Stand, In the Evening, All My Love. That's 24 songs covering all of Led Zep's career. Because it's from a CD compilation, it's not a list specifically chosen for guitarists, of course, so there are a couple of songs (D'yer Mak'er, All My Love), which as a guitarist I'd like to have swapped (with, for instance, The Rain Song and The Ocean, perhaps), but you've certainly got the main ones any Led Zep guitar fan wants to learn (Stairway to Heaven, of course), and a good selection of others to get your teeth into. A few of the songs are in different tunings (When the Levee Breaks, Kashmir), but generally we're in standard EADGBE, so you'll have no trouble picking up your guitar and playing along with the CD.

Generally, only the guitar parts and the vocal melody are transcribed, though there are a few occasions (such as where there aren't any guitars playing), where you get a keyboard transcription, sometimes tab'ed for guitar (the No Quarter electric piano intro, for instance), sometimes not (the clavinet riff that opens Trampled Underfoot, the keyboard intro to All My Love).

Every track from Mothership is here in full tab form - from Led Zep I`s "Communication Breakdown", to "Whole Lotta Love", "Immigrant Song", "Black Dog" and thru to "I`m Gonna Crawl" and "In The Evening", and pretty much all points inbetween. Much much cheaper and easier to purchase than the individual tab books, and just as satisfying. Unless of course you had a burning desire to play "The Crunge", or "Black Country Woman". They`re not here, just the universally acknowledged "big" songs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not properly described 19 April 2013

This book is deceiving, the melodies are not actually tabbed, all that is given is notation and chords. This book would be ok if you just wanted to play the rhythm parts to the songs, but hey, wheres the fun in that? I wanted tabs of what (to the best of someone's ability) Jimmy Page is actually playing. This book would be better for a piano player, or a purely rhythm guitarist, but for my needs it did not fit. I will be returning it .

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book a must for Led Zep fans 8 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been playing guitar for years but never seriously studied rock guitar. I decided I wanted to start though with a study of Jimmy Page's playing being a big fan of Led Zep, so bought this book.

I couldn't be happier with the purchase. There are many helpful hints in the book to help save hours of frustration such as how to damp certain strings when required etc. I've not found any mistakes yet and I'm finding the tab logical and easy on the fingers. One or two parts I might play differently from how it is tabbed, but that goes for any tab in my opinion and relates more to personal preference or even the guitar one is using. Comparing the book to some other tabs I have available, the book wins every time for accuracy and ease of playing.

I am finding it ideal for study as both tab and musical notation are provided, which makes it easier to work out counts for some of the trickier rhythm parts.

I would welcome a second book covering more of Led Zeppelin's material that was not included on the Mothership CD from this publisher done to the same high standard.

In all this is rapidly becoming my favourite book of all time, so if you are considering it, go for it!
