Fool in the Rain

Recommended Posts

How do you guys play fool in the rain? I have checked out lots of drum covers but nobody plays it the way I do. I play with both hands on the high hat, when others only do one. the way I here it John Bonham plays it with two and the sheet music I have has it written with two hands so how do you guys play it?

You can't play it properly with both hands on the hi hat: you need one on the snare for the constant chatter of ghost notes.

Here's a great description of the concept by the late Jeff Porcaro:

Or here's the master himself, although his explanation isn't as clear as Jeff's...
