REVIEW

This drumset edition, John Bonham drum transcriptions, is well notated and easy to read. While I believe drummers should transcribe for themselves, a great learning process in itself, fans and students of the drumming styles of John Bonham will find this book and invaluable tool.

I only found a few places within the transcriptions that were a little difficult to read. No inaccuracies but notation choices I would have done a little differently.

Drum transcriptions from 24 songs, including most of the Led Zeppelin drummer favorites; a great investment and well worth the money.

Pick-up your copy of Led Zeppelin: Mothership (Drumset Edition) right here at the Drummer Cafe!

If you don't own Mothership - 2CD/1DVD, you'll want it too! You can read my review of this combo pack HERE.
