Here is the official way to play Four Sticks as I got it directly from the complete Led 
Zeppelin IV Tabulature book.

                                         FOUR STICKS
 				Words and music by Jimmy Page
			              and Robert Plant

The intro/verse riff has three guitars, all standard tuning:

guitar 1:

--------------------------------
--------------------------------
--------------------------------
--------/2--5b--------/2--5b-----
--4--5----------4--5------------
--------------------------------

guitar 2:

--------------------------------
--------------------------------
--------------------------------
--6--7--9--------6--7--9--------
--4--5--7--------4--5--7--------
--0--0--0--------0--0--0--------

guitar 3:

--------------------------------
--------------------------------
-------------7-------------7----
-------------9-------------9----
-------------7-------------7----
--------------------------------

All of that repeats acouple times with some small ad-lib variations on guitars 1 and 2 
with things like slides and vibratos until:

guitar 1:
          let ring 
--------------------------------
--------------------------------
--------------------------------
--------/2----------------------
--4--5---0-------5\------------------
--------------------------------

guitar 2:

--------------------------------
--------------------------------
--------------------------------
--6--7---7-------9\-------------
--4--5---7--12---7\-------------
---------5--12------------------

guitar 3:

--------------------------------
--------------------------------
--------------------------------
--------------------------------
------------------10\-----------
-0/9-0/10---------10\-----------

All of that is played throughout the song besides the chorus, which has three more 
guitars:

Guitar 4 (Acoustic)

----------------2--2--0--2------------------------------
-5--5--2--5--5--3--3--3--3--5--5--2--5--7--7--7--7/9----
-2--2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4/6----
-2--2--2--2--2--5--5--5--5--2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4/6----
-0--------------------------0--------------------0------
--------------------------------------------------------

Guitar 5: (Acousic)

--------------------------------------------------------

-6--------6--6--4--4--4--4--6--6--6--6--/4-----4--4/6---

-7--7--7--------5--5--5--5--7--7--7--7--/2--0--2--2/4---
-5--5--5--------3--3--0--3--5--5--5--5------------------

Guitar 6: (Electric 12-string)

------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

Those 3 guitar parts are a bit different during the lyrics, but the lyrics basically 
drown them out, the part I posted was the part between the lyrics. If you want the part 
during the lyrics, e-mail me.

And the last guitar parts, guitars 4 and 5 play during the synthesiser, goes like this:

--------------------------0--0--0--0--0--0--0-------------------
--------------------------0--0--0--0--7--7--7--------------7----
--4--2--0--2--4--6--8--9--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--------------8----
--5--4--2--4--5--7--9--7--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--7--7--7--7--9----
--------------------------0--0--0--0--0--0--0-------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------

There are some not to important parts that I left out that aren't really even heard, any 
questions, comments, or song requests, e-mail krinks@aok.net
