Carpet for Stairway to Heaven

Animated Carpet for Stairway to Heaven tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

A new addition to our fingerpicking section, this is a fingerpicking exercise that has two main functions:

1. Learn a cool variation on the T123 fingerpicking pattern.

2. Prepare thyself for the Classic intro to Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven'

We showed you how to play in the T123 pattern...now this ActionTab shows you how to play a T/3213 Pattern. Confused? Don't be...Simply pick the A and E minor Chords shown here by playing your thumb and 3rd finger at the same time, then simply pick with your 2nd and 1st fingers before sounding out the higher note again with your 3rd finger. Repeat.

These are great ways of playing A and E minor chords, due to the simple fingering shapes and use of open string notes. Once you have mastered this fingerpicking pattern and are comfortably a T/3213 Jedi...you will be ready to confront the Dark Lord in 'Stairway to Heaven' my young Padawans.
