Ramble On by Led Zeppelin | acoustic
An acoustic guitar lesson on how to play "Ramble On" by Led Zeppelin from their album Led Zeppelin II released in 1969.
In 2010, the song was ranked number 440 on list of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
For such a mellow tune, this one is actually pretty hard to play well and takes a lot of energy. It's one of my favorite Zeppelin songs.
A few years ago I was able to track down the isolated acoustic guitar track for this song. Having that to transcribe was absolutely awesome!
On the original recording the electric guitar dominates the mix making it almost impossible to hear the subtleties of the acoustic part. Having the isolated track made it easy.
On it's own the acoustic part is really interesting and quite a bit more detailed. Especially those "jazz" chords he plays in the pre-chorus!
Once you learn how to play this you're gonna want to play it everyday! It's a great example of Jimmy Page's offbeat and unique guitar style.
Great song, great guitar player, great band.
I hope you get something out of the lesson. Cheers
