The Rover

Animated The Rover tab by Led Zeppelin on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is a personal favourite from Zeppelin. The Rover is full of nice chunky riffs and has a great melodic harmony during the choruses.

There are 2 guitar parts. This is the main guitar part. The other (lead guitar) does the melodic fills during the choruses and the solo. We'll look at that in a separate ActionTab. You can hear both guitars play together in the normal speed audio, but we've removed the lead guitar audio from this main ActionTab to avoid any confusion.

The song is full of Jimmy magic, which means that there are some frills and trills during the main song riffs below. So learn the riffs, but be aware that there are some variations that Jimmy throws in (you can see those too).

Intro Riff

Verse Riff

Chorus Riff

Bridge Riff

After the bridge verse, the next chorus / verse is played again, but with flourishes and Jimmy tricks. Then comes the outro...

Outro Pt 1

Outro Pt 2

Outro Pt 3

Outro Pt 4

Outro Pt 5

The outro parts are a little more difficult, so make sure you've got the main song parts down first!
