Drywall above stairs into basement


I'm looking for some ideas on how to drywall above the stairs going down to my basement. There is a 90deg turn to the right that happens over a few stairs. I'm thinking that I may have to put a strip of wood on the bottom of each stair so it would be flush with the backside board on the staircase and then drywall each individual step... any ideas?

I'm confused, which is easy to do. What is the orientation of the pics? You mentioned 'rocking above the stairs, then on the back of the stairs. ??? Please enlighten.

The picture shows the underside of the staircase that goes from the main level up to the second level so the light is near the ceiling, not the floor. In other words, if you were walking down to the basement and looked up, that's what you'd see.

I'd clean up the framing by adding to it to eliminate all the angles. Then sheetrock it.
