Add to EJ Playlist I find this method to be very effective in nurturing & strengthening your weak hand.
'Nurturing' is actually the perfect way to think about it.

**In the video, the live version of The Song Remains The Same I refer to is from June 21, 1977 at the LA Forum (it's the 'Listen To This Eddie' bootleg TSRTS version).
Add to EJ Playlist A lot of folks have been asking if I'd just play the drums-that they'd enjoy it. TA-DA!
In here is a GREAT BONHAM LICK, **and more than a few F bombs** (sorry). For lick only, start at 8:00 if you can't wait for it.
I was initially seeing/taping how my buzz roll sounds on tape (checking the balance of the dynamics which I'm working on), and I starting playing a NEAT DRUMKIT PLAYED TRIPLET PATTERN that Bonham used in a few spots-specifica lly in the outro of endings of the drum solo at the end of every many live ROCK & ROLL performances..
***SPECIFICALLY , it's the particular drum triplet riff found at the end of The Song Remains The Same's (movie version) Rock And Roll DRUM OUTTRO.***

Add to EJ Playlist Closing the "Skill Gulf" between our LEFT and RIGHT hands/sides is of critical importance to the technical aspects of our drum playing.
Training the weak hand/side-consc ientiously and continually, with the methods I demonstrate in this video-will more efficiently (and therefore more quickly and effectively) will bring the weak hand/side to a level best suited to engage in efficient hand-to-hand practicing and playing.
Add to EJ Playlist Taken from a briefcase of a very drunken subordinate member of THE FIRST ORDER OF THE DRUMMER'S ILLUMINATI; This is the Number Two Kata of the LIST OF SE7EN SACRED KATA'S OF MOELLER (et al.).
Add to EJ Playlist **This video isn't intended to be a primary "how to" video to learn the Moeller and related sticking techniques, but rather a 'primer' (if you've never studied these techniques before), or a 'supplement' (if you are familiar with the techniques).**
It contains some very important observations for you to bear in mind in your pursuit of Moeller sticking technique, open-close, drop/catch techniques, etc.. I sincerely hope you find it helpful.
Youtube is chock full of terrific videos on the subject: any vids by Dave Weckl, Derrick Pope, Jo Jo Mayer, Gordy Knudtson, Dom Famularo, and of course, the late Jim Chapin.
Thank you sincerely for watching my videos and getting me to the cusp of 10,000 subscribers.

*Please excuse my flamming of the intro notes on the toms. Bonham didn't do that on the record. I was so keen to demonstrate the intro count in...
**Also, the count in actually starts on the 3 of the bar before**.
I'd like to bullshit you and say that showing it from the count of 1 in a full bar in the video makes it easier to understand (it does), but.. it actually dawned on me four hours after I posted the video that technically it starts actually on the 3 of the bar before. DOH!! Just try to get the gist what I'm saying: that without any fancy meter change, Page shows that simply starting this lick where Page starts it-right on a quarter note in 4/4, this riff can throw you off. Very clever!
*When I played my first gig with the Chicago Zep tribute band KASHMIR several years ago-in front of 300 people-I became panic stricken that I'd spent two weeks going over my endurance, and making sure I knew every song on the setlist EXCEPT Ten Years Fucking Gone. 'Tout suite' I had to go over it a couple times in my head just before the drums came in and-I nailed it by the grace of God-thank Christ!!
I very much enjoy the perceived funky 'Kent Tekulve curveballs' Page throws in his melodies-especi ally as they sit in intros to songs.
I still to this day still cling to the perceived, sonic beefcake cool, mind-bending sounding drum intro that the beginning of Misty Mountain Hop can provide if you think of it 'improperly'-wi th the first drum note on the '1'.
