Default Re: John Bonham

On the intro to Rock & Roll:

Bonham starts it with a pick up like the familiar Elvis guitar lick on Jailhouse Rock which starts on the "an" of beat three in the pick up measure. Knowing Bonham's sense of humor maybe he had that idea in his head and then change it in the 3rd bar.

Accent story for Rock & Roll (accents in bold)

Pick up
|(1 + 2 + 3) + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |


| 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |


| 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + || (1) Songs starts on "1" not a pick up
