Want to Sound Like JOHN BONHAM?
With 25 John Bonham Fills for Beginners (volume I), you'll actually have a fighting chance!
John Bonham is one of the most beloved rock drummers of all-time. 

His playing was aggressive, innovative and always grooving and he influenced many of today's best rock drummers including:  Dave Grohl, Matt Cameron, Dave Lombardo, Joey Kramer, Danny Carey and Roger Taylor. And all of these drummers have talked publicly about how Bonham inspired them.

Now, for the first time, we offer a video course that breaks down some of Bonham's best fills from the first 5 Led Zeppelin albums. 

We've chosen 25 fills for you. They're all demonstrated in a step-by-step progression--using both video and a PDF book--so you are sure to be able to learn these fantastic pieces of drumming vocabulary even if you're just getting started with your drumming.

Dear Friend, 

One of the secrets to musical success that all the pros know is that it's OK to "steal" ideas from those great artists who came before you on your instrument.

In fact, it's more than OK---it's required!

If you want to get good, why would you try to figure everything out all on your own? If you're smart, you don't do that. It simply takes too long.  

If you want to learn something, wouldn't you want to use the method that gets you as good as you can be as fast as possible?

Of course you would!

And in the case of learning vocabulary---and fills are an important part of that (they're some of the most important "words" that you'll need to learn in order to play drums)---who could be better to emulate than John Bonham? 

He's the guy if you want to be a rock drummer. 

But then, you might be thinking, "Yeah, but who has the time to go figure out all those fills he played? That's gonna take a lot of work!"

Well, guess what? We did all that work for you (and then some! 

What we did was make you a fantastic online video course (with a PDF book) called 25 John Bonham Fills for Beginners (Volume I, 1969 - 1973)

We've transcribed 25 of our favorites from: Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, Led Zeppelin III, Led Zeppelin IV and Houses of the Holy. 

Then, my friend, the excellent drummer Tim Buell from Nashville, will take you through every fill, bit by bit and piece by piece so that you can learn any or all of them--even if you are a beginner. 

There's a reason why beginners love us--we teach with the newcomer in mind--and that's different from how most drum educators impart their knowledge to you. 

We don't go too fast when we show you something because we know that playing things slowly helps you to learn. We also have all of the notation up on the screen and a red bar that scrolls through to indicate where we are while we're playing for you.

Check out what Cindy B said: 

"Being able to see the music notation and the movements onscreen were a game changer for me. That could NEVER have happened in a private lesson with the most brilliant teacher in the world, and that's what it took for my brain and body to work together.

You could NEVER have convinced me before that I could learn this much so quickly..."

Are you ready to steal from rock's best? 

We've done all the hard work for you. All you have to do is sign up, watch, practice, and these fills are all yours!

Have fun!

Thanks from your drumming pal,

Mark Feldman, Drummer and Founder
