    I can hear the snare pretty close to Bonham's. Good job on song, I really love playing this one as well

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing.

    MOST ORCHESTRA'S ARE JUST 1800'S COVER BANDS!

    Pretty close. You have the pitch perfect. There's just something about his sound that's different. Listen to his snare at around 0:11. The best snare sound ever.

    Bonham was a master at tuning his drums and his snare was a great example.
