Does anyone else on the Nation beat box??

It's a budding hobby of mine, and I was wondering if anyone has any good tips or online tutorials that have helped you.

This thread is no longer about beatboxing. It's now about John Bonham's legendary drumming style. I found some isolated drum tracks from him on YouTube last night. Check this one out! I mean just listen to how fucking heavy he plays, but he fucking GROOVES like no one else. This particular beat is from an unreleased song.


#12

Sound quality isn't nearly as good on this one unfortunately. But it still sounds fucking killer.


#13

Here's Good Times Bad Times recreated note for note on a drum machine. And yes, he does all this with a single bass pedal. What a fucking octopus.


#14

Here's Bonham playing his version of the famous Purdie Shuffle. It's the drum track from Fool in the Rain, the only good thing about that whole fucking song.

edit: skip to the 3 minute mark to really hear him break it down.


#15

This is my favorite. Another deceptively simple groove, but in Bonham's hands it sounds like a fucking nuclear bomb going off. Plus, I love how you can hear him grunting an' shit in the background. I've noticed that when I play I have a tendency to do the same thing. Reminds me of the Muppet, Animal.


#16

Here's a loop of probably his most famous beat. So simple and so heavy.


#17

I could've sworn I posted before DB.
