Hey, I've been looking around on YouTube and elsewhere about the way Bonham played this beat. Everyone I've seen play this beat plays it with on hand on the high hat and plays the groove that way. But the way I hear it he plays with two hands on the high hat, going R-L-R-L-R-R-L-R-L-R-L-R. I have been playing it this way for a long time and it sound great and it also sound just like he plays it. I should have a video on YouTube soon with me playing it. But what do you think?

Bonzo got it from Bernard "pretty" Purdy, and you get a pretty damn good look at how Mr. Purdy himself does it in the following video - only one stick on the hi-hat. The only song I can think of in the entire Zep canon where Bonzo goes for two sticks on the 'hats is in 'In My Time Of Dying'.

Purdy gets 'down to business' at 2:40. Love how much's enjoying just playing!

Hmmm... not sure. I think he's just being quick with his right hand there.
