Let There Be Drums. A cover version of Sandy Nelson's hit from 1961 with a twist of 2014 and a twist of blues at the end, but not too much.

It is a piece of music my old grandfather Peder Lavrsen loved, and for this reason I have wanted to do this one for years. Now was the time. This has been fun to do drumming on my Roland SPD-SX as well as on my keyboard.

Nice drumming, do you play the SPD-SX into the computer or do you program the the drums on the computer and use the computer to play the SPD-SX ?

This is impressive, Ken! Showing off some versatility here, hmmm?

The drums sounds GREAT (very authentic...like the mic is right up next to the skin) and I dig the pink floydish bass sounds section...

Well-done!

This is a perfect counterexample for all those people thinking that drums are just a supportive background instrument without any further value. The Title fits perfectly smiley

Heh, this is GREAT! I had never heard this before. Mesmerizing drums, with a nice stereo effect Kenneth - is this because of using a pad or exactly how do you pan various percussion hits. The guitar at 2:10 wails wonderfully, culminating all the drumming that preceded it. Cute ending too smiley

I love that bouncy reverby bassline and that ultra cool drum line. Very well played. Oh, the blast of electric guitar chords also sound incredible. Hard to believe this is all done on a keyboard. I keep meaning to ask you - can you play drums in real life? you always do drums so well I think you must be a drummer for real? I really like how you've made the drums the star of the show here. They're often overlooked in a song. Great blues-style tune here - a new one on me. Those guitars are so good, like a whole band has been playing them.
