John Bonham Style Drum Lick

Sheet Music For This Lesson

This is a great little drum lick that I first came across in the track ‘Black Dog’ by Led Zeppelin. In this video we are taking the same sticking pattern and turning it into a one bar drum fill. This idea is played using a combination of 16th notes and 32nd note triplets. I am playing a When The Levee Breaks style of groove at around 75 bpm. I suggest to practice it  with slow to medium tempos or in a half time groove. Hope you enjoy it!
