Trampled Under Foot Guitar Lesson – Led Zeppelin

In this Trampled Under Foot guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great song by Led Zeppelin off of their Physical Graffiti album.

The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.

Most of Trampled Under Foot contains just two guitar riffs. These riffs can be challenging to play up to speed, but are a lot of fun to play once you get them under your fingers.

Throughout a lot of the second half of the song, you will hear Jimmy Page play a bunch of overdubbed guitar fills and a solo. Instead, of taking you through each one of those note-for-note, I will instead talk about the scale forms that he using and improvising with.

In live performances, Jimmy would just improvise for all of those solo sections. So knowing what scales he is using will allow you to do the same thing.

But for those killer riffs hear throughout the song, we will tackle those note-for-note.

Have fun learning this great song from Led Zeppelin! Carl...

    Hi Carl,

    Thank you from breaking these songs down. Your website is excellent and wish it was around when I started playing the guitar when I was younger.

    Question, any chance you could breakdown the solo from Fool in the Rain? I’ve been trying to learn it, but I can’t seem to get the phrasing right after learning the parts of the solo. (Not looking for a handout, I am willing to pay for the instruction)

    Thank you and looking forward to exploring this site more.
