Default Re: Bonham fills

Some of Bonhams grooves had a significant swing feel to them. Heart Breaker and Bring it on home come to mind.I think the ride in Heart Breaker was a studio effect, but the ride resembled a shuffle more than a straight sixteeth note ride.

He tended to blend straight time and shuffles together in some of his feels and played in between the two. I think this was, in part, some of his magic.
My body stunk, but I kept my funk.
