    Default Help with a Bonham fill

    I've been searching everywhere trying to figure out this part of his solo in Moby dck. The part is at 1:40. It sounds like he's doing doubles on the bass drum, but can't figure the rest out. I noticed that he only did it in 1970. I've watched Bonzoleum's videos but can't find that one part. It's such a cool fill that I'd love to learn.

    Ok so what I am see is...

    RLRRLRRKKR

    In the video, around 140, I think he plays T S S S S FT FT K K FT
    and then maybe back to snare to fill in the gap.. It appears to be just some standard pattern hes practiced and hes just applying it around the kit. but thats my best guess

    Hmmm. I though it had something to do with a paradiddle diddle. Thanks for the response.

    @1:07 I started counting (1) and at 1:37 is the first paradiddle diddle.

    Thanks for that. Did you hear any doubles on the kick? I know he alternates between the hi hats and the kick with the pedals, but I'm sure I can hear some doubles. What do you think?

    I think he's alternating the paradiddle diddle up top (snare, tom) with the bottom (kick, 16x16 FT). He repeats the phrase for about 16 measures here:

    I sat down for a half hour today trying to figure it out. Still can't get it remotely close.

    I really enjoyed that Rick. I appreciate you making a video for me. I'll be sure to take that into practice. It even made me want to check out some other drummers around his time. Thanks again!

    I've looked everywhere. Bonzoleum doesn't have a video on the moby **** 1970 at royal Albert Hall. I've somewhat gotten the fill, but I'm almost positive I can hear Bonham playing doubles on the kick. It makes it sound that much better. You can clearly hear it at 1:40.
