If there was one band that stood out during then 70’s as a yardstick for how good you were as a guitarist, it was Led Zeppelin. Jimmy Page was regarded in many circles as “The Best.” Period.
And of course, their signature song was Stairway to Heaven. Now you *had* to know the beginning … that goes without saying … but everybody KNEW you were a great player if you could play Page’s solo from that song.
There’s no doubt it’s a good one. Very bluesy, but also very memorable. Even Frank Zappa did it – with the horn section doing the solo even!! (you can see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKgK91zCq44)
In any event, you should put it into your repertoire. Enjoy!!
