She will go far. I needed a little Bonzo infusion there.

I started playing guitar in high school, late 80s. Being a rocker/metalhead, it was near obligatory to listen/learn a bunch of the Zep catalog of songs on guitar, so I have all the albums and have repeatedly listened to every released song, many, many times. I went to a couple Plant concerts because they would invariably play a couple Zeppelin tunes and have seen the Jason Bonham Experience a couple times as well.

What I really enjoyed from this girl is how well she keeps time and also captures the strength of Bonham's pounding...and she's so small for that sound! Seriously impressive.

I enjoy scouring the internet for youth playing these old songs with such proficiency; they make me smile.

Thanks for this one Smile

I'm no drummer, but holy shit is this girl good. Look at her foot go on the kick drum!! Can't decide what made me smile more, her technical skills, or her sheer joy when she knew she was in the groove.

Rock on girlfriend!
