Since I've Been Loving You

Pretty straight-up cover of the Zep song. Live rehearsal recording.

This is us blowing off steam after working on Yes songs for a couple of hours last night in Brian's garage. I'm your bass player for the evening, as usual. For your listening enjoyment, I suggest turning it up real loud.

Needs more squeaky kick drum pedal.

Really, though, this is very cool. I wish I was back in a band that could really just jam like that.

I learned a critical thing about Bonham's technique from listening to that squeak, actually. If you notice, it's on the backswing before the pedal goes forward towards the drum, and the backswing never occurs until just before the actual strike. He kept his foot down on the pedal, holding the mallet against the drum in between beats, only lifting it just in time to strike down again. He probably sat with his toe on the pedal and his heel up.

I think that's how he naturally developed those super fast two-beat almost-flam things he did with the kick that sound like the new-fangled double kick pedals, like in When The Levee Breaks. I'm not a drummer, so this might be common knowledge, or normal technique, but it seems pronounced in his style.
