Don't use the same technique/method to change all songs in the medley, make it interesting and inventive. For instance, perhaps drum solo out of Moby Dick in to a section of another song that has a small drum solo/fill in it and say if you were going from Black Dog in to The Ocean maybe come up with a riff/s that would segue the too together nicely or an ascending/descending chromatic run.

Also don't be afraid to use rubato or rallentando either - most people know those Led Zep you listed, take a few creative liberties, just don't change or muck things up to much.

Good luck with.

houses of the holy and rock nd roll are a must have, they are incredibly fun songs to play.

rock and roll last.

immigrant song song mite be a good opener, prety well known. or if you decide to do stairway, open with that because everyone will know it and it's a good way to build up to the rest.

play a medley of every single song they've ever recorded, it'll end up being at least three hours long, but it would be so awesome

If someone actually pulled that off it would be incredibly epic.

Kashmir and Misty mountain hop I hear too much and are too repetetive. Trampled under foot I hear too much I think is overrated and I don't have someone to play keys.

It's actually probably because Kashmir is in DADGAD tuning.
You could still play the main riff without re-tuning however.

Thanks to everyone that suggested stuff especially how to do changes.

On a seperate issue lets try to tone down the hate. This is supposed to be a mellow thread. I'm guilty too I made fun of that kid who likes spiders.
