Rock Perspectives

John Bonham–Style Foot Pattern

Creative Ideas Based on the “Four Sticks” Ostinato

by Powell Randolph

Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham is considered by many to be rock’s greatest drummer of all time. He’s definitely one of my favorites, and in this lesson we’ll focus on a foot pattern that Bonham used often. It’s essentially an alternating pattern between the feet, starting with the left foot on the hi-hat pedal.
