Add to EJ Playlist This John Bonham PATENTED 1968 drum fill is from the upper echelon of BONHAM DRUMFILLDOM.
It's a the first cousin of the ALTERNATING TRIPLET (see my video https://www.you tube.com/watch? v=C9sfpXrNtz0).
It's heard often in live Dazed & Confused renditions (the 3 note version usually) and most famously in a 6 note version in YOU SHOOK ME from the filmed Royal Albert Hall show from 1970.
Add to EJ Playlist I will from time to time clean a B20 alloy crsah cymbal (A Zildjian, K Zildjian, Sabian Paiste FO602, Bosphorus, Crescent, Istanbul, etc.) if the there is a buildup of gunk (dirt, grime, oils, greenish oxidation) toward the edge of it. A heavier buildup does very much mute the full effect of the crash sustain of the cymbal.
In this video I use a brush as well-which I pretty much never do, but I think the Barkeeper's Friend I had on hand was quite old and maybe not as virile.
Muting can positively affect the sound of a ride cymbal if the buildup is providing a muting of undesirable overtones.
I've heard many times where a jazz drummer loves his ride, but wants to give it a cleaning, and the subsequent cleaning alters the highly desired, once drier & smoky tone into a wetter, overtone-y 80's A. Zildjian horror.. So use your best judgement!
In the case of the 17" A Zildjian in this video, the significant buildup of gunk on the edge (both underside and top) was very negatively affecting the cymbal's crash potential by pretty severely killing the shimmery crash overhang; the full, clean crash tone was muted.
At the end of the video I alternate between the pre-clean and the clean (in that order), so you can hear the difference between the two. As the loop goes, it becomes clear that the cleaned cymbal has a very superior, fuller crash sound.
BTW: *DON'T EVER USE THIS ON ANYTHING OTHER THAN B20 ALLOY. If I ever do clean a B8 alloy cymbal (which is usually never), I will use the Paiste cymbal cleaner as it works like a charm, and doesn't discolor/damage the B8 alloy cymbal.
Add to EJ Playlist *Or right hand leading; it depends on what hand you lead your TWO HAND ONE FOOT drumset triplets.
Accenting the leading hand will greatly assist in nailing the early Bonham Triplet sound & feel. It really adds to the flavor of the drum riff.

Add to EJ Playlist Made very popular by Led Zeppelin's French TV appearance in 1969; a one-handed drumset triplet figure around the drumkit whilst twirling the stick in the dominanat hand.
BTW: Bonham I think only does it briefly in the part of the song I demonstrate it here in the TOUS EN SCENE soundcheck at the 2:09 minute mark here in this video:

Add to EJ Playlist The other Fool In The Rain videos I have were recorded with my old camera (and bad 'old sound').
Here is a revised lesson with my newer camera with better sound. *Better-not great-but definitely better than before.
I also went back and watched my older FITR videos, and I found myself cringing often at my oft-choppy performance of it!
I've realized, that, for me, playing a heel-down hi hat gives me better control of then groove overall.
You may or may not find that a 'heel-down' hi-hat method cleans up your FITR groove, but it makes mine smoother compared to my heel-up rendition!
In any case I hope this video is helpful.
Thank you for watching!
Add to EJ Playlist I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor!!! YES!
Poor Tom Drum lesson. It's a great pattern to practice, as it involves some slightly tricky hand-foot mojo.
Thank you for watching my videos!
Please subscribe if you haven't!!!!
Add to EJ Playlist This is just the Bonham riff/solo-y portion of the longer video I recently posted in my video: MY BONHAM-SIZED DRUM KIT * OUT OF MOTHBALLS.
Thanks for watching!! Please check out my channel & subscribe!!
I have over 200+ videos!
Add to EJ Playlist A bit cursory in scope, a video demonstrating the sonic variations of B8 alloy & B20 alloy utilizing 15" hi-hats & 18" crashes.
(**Rides deserve their own video!)
Here, it's B20 to B8 back to B20. I hope you will find the video helpful!

Add to EJ Playlist Sorry about the "video cut out", doodz..
I didn't realize my VINTAGE DRUM STORIES video had cut out 'til a buddy of mine pointed it out to me. I guess I should 'proof-read' my videos!
Here's a reshoot I just did of the ending. We just got a mountain of snow here in Chicago and please pardon my greasy, grimy, gopher-gut-y appearance...
Add to EJ Playlist This is a quick one I cranked out: I saw today an article that Tom Petty was getting some royalties from Sam Smith for the similarity between "I Won't Back Down" and Smith's "Stay With Me".
Anyway, I have what I think is a marvy/cash generating idea for the sale of band's individual song tracks (the actual individual tracks that go/went into building the mix of the song) so that folks can build their own versions of songs or indeed a collage of songs into an art unto itself.
Add to EJ Playlist A while back I made a video showing my Bonham Amber Vistalite drumkit: On that kit was a Ludwig rail consolette mount, and I briefly mentioned the version of the rail that I had installed on...
