    I haven't put anything on here for some time, so here's a song that came into my head a while back whilst listening to my favourite drum grooves.:rolleyes: Loved the beat, so wrote the song to go with it. It's quite drum heavy, but as Moto knows only too well, that's just something I do. I hope it gets your foot tapping.

    Thanks for the kind words guys.:) The original had three verses, but I recorded them too far apart (about 3 months):rolleyes: and the last verse sounded like a different singer, so I left it out. (on Maggie's advice).(y)

    Thanks Dave. The slide is pretty basic. It's loosely based on the start of one of Griff's 5 slide solos. (it's as far as I got on that course, but I have previous for that):whistle::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
