Hello fellow Queen fans... I figured I would share my drum cover of I'm In Love With My Car... Don't be too mean, I've only been playing since mid October =]

By far one of the best drum covers, very close to the original drum part. You deserve a best kit than the one you have in this video. Well done !

I'm a drummer myself for some time and I watched it and enjoyed it !
Just one tip :  make sure you play the hi-hat part right. Roger opens the hi-hat when he hits the snare and closes it just after that. You seem to close the hi-at the same time you hit the snare. Make sure you play it right, because it's one of Roger's famous trademarks. It creates an extra fat accent.
But when I watch your timing, cymbal parts and your fills, I can only say : great job.
You seem to have listened to the original part very well.

cheers !

Ghostrider-210 - Thanks a lot!! I wish I had a better kit too, but this will do for now. I'm actually in the process of replacing the crash on my right.
JDL2nd- Thanks, its always great to hear feedback from another drummer! I will definitely work on the hi-hat/snare thing.. It will be a little tough at first I'm sure.. Yes, this has been one of my favorite songs for several years now, so I have listened to it literally hundreds of times lol. Thanks again! Now I'm anxious to mess around with the "Roger trademark" hi-hat technique.
