    Comments about Alfred Led Zeppelin Celebration Day Guitar Songbook with TAB:

    The product description on the Musician's Friend website clearly states, "The exclusive Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day songbook presents authentic guitar TAB transcriptions of the 16 classic songs that made up the set, based on the original studio recordings."

    A disclaimer on the book also states, "This book presents new transcriptions of the songs from the set as originally recorded on the classic Led Zeppelin studio albums."

    Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin vigorously defend the legacy of the band so I'm certain this product could not be issued without their explicit consent,

    Also, just about all of the songs performed by Jimmy using the sunburst Les Paul at the O2 (ie. "Good Times Bad Times," "Ramble On," "Black Dog," etc.) were played tuned down a whole step. The basic fingerings and TAB in this book still apply; you simply need to tune your guitar down a whole step to match the pitch on the Celebration Day recordings.
    Watch the video—the riffs remain the same.

          Comments about Alfred Led Zeppelin Celebration Day Guitar Songbook with TAB:

          This is a profesional and detailed set of authentic guitar transcriptions of the songs played by Led Zeppelin during their epic concert in London in December 2007.

          But unfortunately, it is NOT true to the versions of the songs that were played that night by the band, instead it is true to the ORIGINAL studio recordings of those songs released on Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, and all the other great albums which the 16 songs played that night were drawn from. They are great, detald transcriptions, just not the versions played at the concert or on the recently released album.

          For exapmle, "Ramble On" is played beautifully in D at the concert/on the album with changes to the tempo, bridge, and solo; but it is transscribed in E here, with notation that reflects the original studio release. This is disappointing to anyone trying to learn the song in the lower register, in order to accomodate a lower vocal range (as clearly the band did in 2007, reflecting Robert Plant's still spectacular but lower range). I know I could lower my entire tuning by two steps, but that is not what Jimmy Page did and I already have the original transcription. This goes for many of the other songs: "Misty Mountain Hop", "Nobody's Fault", etc., and all the new solos and arrangements Jimmy executed so well that night in London.

          So, here are great transcriptions of the original studio recordings of what the band played at the 02 Arena, but NOT what they actually played or what the cover and title of the book represent. Too bad Alfred had to rush this out and couldn't take the time to be honest. Even the novice guitarist will recognize this fraud as soon as they try to play these transciptions to the new album version. Maybe Hal Leonard will step up and do it right.
