… preferably with real notes and stuff, and not just pictures of fretboards.

A bit short of the actual sheet music there, but good effort.

'Transcription' comes from the Latin 'transcrire,' meaning 'to pay a transvestite to write it down for you'.

No idea if they're still in print but the Warner Chappell series of 'off the record' books are spot on (sheet & tab) if you can get hold of them. They include drums/bass/keys too which is really useful when they're playing in different time signatures. I'd go so far as to say they made me the pale imitation of a Jimmy Page clone that I am today.

To bring this back on-topic...

The digital sheet music on offer from Musicroom (Music Sales) looks to provide real notation as well as tab. See examples.

Musicroom Led Zeppelin sheet music

Maybe try one song download and see if you think it works for you and is accurate?

See examples like this one:

This lot were used by Total Guitar magazine (might still be?) and from memory they had both tab and sheet music / standard notation, and you also get backing tracks with the CDs / DVDs. Worth investigating. I've got a few old copies of the mag at home which have "Black Dog" and "Rock and Roll" in them...I'll have a sift through but as I say from memory their versions are near as 100% and excellent.

I've got the lick library DVD for LZ IV. I'd like to tell you about it but I put it down somewhere a few weeks ago shortly after it arrived and I haven't seen it since. The plectrum wormhole must have expanded in size.

Wasn't there a great line from a film that went something like:
"I learnt to play Stairway to Heaven when I was 14. Jimmy Page didn't even write it until he was 21. I think that says something..."...??

I've just dug out those old Total Guitar mags and they do have musical notation for Jimmy Page's parts, so I'd assume the lick library ones who are made by the same people would do also...

Thanks very much for those recommendations, gents. I googled the Off The Record series and on a quick glance they look excellent. I found examples for sale ranging from seven quid to over three hundred dollars. Guess which I ordered ?

There are a few dodgy copies of the LZ3 book stored around the web, which gave me an idea.

Wouldn't it be fun to put transcriptions of those tunes that they really didn't write all over the Internet (The Lemon Song springs to mind). In order to sue, they would have to prove that they wrote stuff that was recorded when they were still in nappies.

I am a bit scared of Peter Grant's reputation, but he isnt around anymore. Plant looks a bit skinny and I am sure I could beat him in a fight, if it came to that. And Page ? If he started anything, I would just shout: look behind you ! Free cocaine ! And then hit him with a chair.

What do you reckon ? Good idea ?
