This Cover Contest is for the song Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin.
I am looking for a cover with no vocals and just the guitar playing. The point of this song is to see who can get closest to J. Pages Live or Studio song except for the Solo. The solo needs to improvised. Here is my judging scale.
True to Original - 1-30
Tone - 1-10
Feel - 1-20
Improve Solo - 1-40
Here is a backing track that I would like everybody to use.
