ha ha...let me practise for a couple of years first, and then I might consider it  :D  But, anyway, putting up just a few riffs on Youtube would be pointless. As I said, I'm still just a noob, and struggling hard with the simplest things! :P
But it is indeed a great song, and it would be really cool to be able to play it some day.  :)

JC you obviously have the drive and the passion to make this happen.  I know you will nail this sooner or later.  Just being a newb like myself great challenges lay ahead of us both!  A lot of people take up guitar and then when the going gets tough they can't tough it out.  That's what makes us different from them.  I'm getting frustrated trying learn all the notes on the neck, the major scale positions and trying to keep up with the beginners course level 3 and learning a new song with my teacher.  I won't ever wave the white flag.  That's the way I am with everything though and this kind of thinking has done me justice!

I just finished learning the last part of "Stairway" on Friday night (except the solo) - now I just need to make it sound ok - playing this piece in time is my biggest challenge as the hammer-on Amin screws with my rythm - particularly in the plectrum part.

Also working on the crux part of "Yesterday" the dreaded F#min to B7 barre chord change is still giving me a bit of gyp but I'm getting there (I actually have more trouble getting the 3rd string on the F#min to ring out than any other bit as I just can't seem to get my technique right and not mute it).

Tonight I want to start on "Down and Out"

Boodles of fun :)

Getting chord change between E and D fast enough.

Having an attempt at C and G.

Currently improving my playing over a fingerstyle version of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow."
And Learning a fingerstyle version of The Beatles' "Blackbird".

I took a very bad habit of stepping straight into fingerstyle and I can play it good but I can't play chords to save my life so I'm having to step back and learn the beginners course again. Mind you, learning other songs have strengthened my fingers and improved my co-ordination between left and right so I got something good out of it!

Slap me, I developed bad habits!

how can you possibly play fluent fingerstyle without decent chord changes? :)

I'm interested in that fingerstyle piece of "over the rainbow"
i'm developing my own version of it and i'm always interested in other peoples versions

Some-where ov-er the rain-bow...
_____5__4______2__3__5_____6___________ e
___________5____________2_____5________ B
__2____________________________________ G
_______________________________________ D
_______________________________________ A
_______________________________________ E

Mostly a one finger type thing but it has really helped me with strength, I just got no rythm or chords perfected! Want the rest of the tabs?

don't have to post it all

my version is kind of a mixture of the backign chords and the melody line, evolving around
between ( ) are the decoration I alternate with during the chord, but not always

G and B variations are barre chords
rest is open

sounds best with capo on 4th imo

(from my head; can't verify it to be 100% correct from here :) )

Gmaj,Em(Em7),Bm,Cmaj,Cmin(Cmin7).
Cmaj(9), Cmin,Gmaj(G7)
Gmaj,Em(Em7),Bm
Am(Am7), Dmaj,(Dsus2Dsus4,D7)

You Shook Me All Night Long (ST-319).

Only 3 chords, but man that change between C and G is a killer.
Solo coming along, but keep catching strings on the bends.

Riff Raff too, intro, lick and chorus (not solo yet).

oh, and back to Justin's basic course v2. Perhaps the songs above are a bit of a stretch for a noob?

May sound stupid but I just got the Happy Birthday song in chord melody by ear.
My wife finally said "hey, you can actually get something out of that!"  ;D
Now I have to play it for ther birthday.

I also got the chord melody for "Fly me to the moon" but just the first bars until "jupiter and mars" after guessing the melody. Took a couple of days but when you get it it feels so nice.

Now I am just going through the basic jazz chords in order to learn them all by heart.
