I decided to watch 'Tommy' last night. I never really paid much attention to Keith Moon but I wanted to know what it is about his playing that is so distinctive and see if I can do a template in his style.

First off, he was off his tits on horse tranquillisers most of the time - that's not an option. But there's certain trademarks I could see in his playing:

Hitting the cymbals a lot
Playing fills as part of the riff (he was very musical even though he seemed random!)
A particular trademark is playing the kick drum, usually 8th notes, throughout his fills.

So that is what I've tried to emulate here. Just some noisy, clattery drums in the style of Keith Moon. I only recorded 2:15 so copied the first minute of playing, including intro, on the end to lengthen the track to over three minutes. Structurally, I've no idea what I've played. Sorry.

Enjoy.

No reverb on the HD.
