It's 8th notes on the snare all the way through, not just at the beginning and breaks. That is what made John Bonham...John Bonham. Nice playing though.

Wow. I was doing the intro wrong all these years.. (haven't played in years).. but wow the right hand is hitting the hi-hat & the snare along with the left..it sounded like..and wow.yes sounded like Bonham! Wow. Bonham always had these little cool signature textures , such as that one right there.. WOW! Great job dude you have captured the Bonzo energy and feel better than anyone I've heard I'd say even more than Jason! You look like him too..dang you should be in a huge Zep tribute band bro

Sounds good but the bass drum part is busier on the studio recording. It''s not just single hits or double hits.
