Listening to Led Zeppelin's The Rover for the first time, I thought I recognized the guitar riff from the chorus, but I don't know where else I could have heard it. Are there any songs that sample that particular riff, or which have very similar guitar riffs?

(To clarify, I mean the guitar riff that's first heard from around 1:28 to about 1:50.)

1 Answer 1


The guitar riff/chord structure has hints of Stairway to Heaven, but in a different key

The verse sounds like anything by ZZ Top, with a touch of Rocky Mountain Way, minus the shuffle.

WhoSampled has it listed as a cover by Dream Theatre, but no instances of it being sampled directly
