    Default One of the best good times bad times covers Ive seen

    This is a drummer from england ( i think ), doing a cover of zeppelin’s good times bad times. This is the best cover of that song ive ever seen. Listen to some of his bass drum kicks..
    Opinions?

    WOW, I struggle like all get out with those fast triplets on the right foot. Thats very impressive. I try slowing it down and doing it over and over but speeding up is a different technique and feel....The struggle is real my friends : )

    This guy is obviously a very good drummer and just goes to show how competitive it is out there. And this guy isnt even famous.
    I think he is a session drummer. He is very talented.

    OK, so the guy did a good job on that song. It wasn't phenomenal. I say that knowing that you can't judge a player based on just one video of one song. That is misleading. There are plenty of "one trick ponies' out there and his "one trick" may be a quick right foot.

    Good!, but listen to Yoyoka (8 yr. old Japanese girl ) do the same song.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bslk...uFSuw_8QvxefeY Wait till she gets a little taller so she can reach the bass pedal better!

    Fair enough.. some of his other video’s i saw are less impressive. Its one thing to copy another artist and another to come up with cool licks from scratch.

    That was really good Lexer.
    I think this one is hands down the best version of Achilles Last Stand out there I've seen.

    I don't mean to sound like a big headed a-hole here but I see nothing impressive in that video. I was playing that song note for note live in clubs back in 1982. If you're a serious drummer and you put in the time this song is not that difficult. And also I've been playing drums for over 40 years so it's going to take more than a Zeppelin tune to impress me I guess. We used to play Achilles also , way more of a challenge than good times.

    Well said. I was going to go down that road, but, apparently I don't need to fuel the fires about me being an a**hole so I was just trying to be nice. And to be honest, Achilles Last Stand is not all that difficult either.

    lol , it's not but it does have a couple more challenging fills. Oh and I'm done being nice. I'm telling it like it is from now on.

    Wow...I was mentioning how good of a copy it was, maybe not how difficult or challenging it may be to you as a drummer.

    Bonham plays achilles last stand with such authority. I have heard many good drummers play that song but none can truly replicate that fill where Bonham goes around the drums, its as if he does it effortlessly.

    Well we all have different natural abilities so just because it is so simple for you does not mean it is that way for everyone. Love to see a slowed down version of the bass drum technique you use on this, if you have a minute to put a video together?

    I like to use the woodshed man technique. Lot's of practice.....hit it hard......hit it fast.

    Really good cover. His lugs remind me what Martin Chambers from the Pretenders had on his black and white kit in the 80s.

    You're right , it was a good cover. I don't know why i went down that road. Probably because I'm getting old and I have to warm up for a half hour just to play a Charlie Watts fill.
