Hey folks - pardon the mild pluggery, but since folks seemed to like my last prog-metal cover, I thought I'd share my new cover, which is a 5/4 heavy rendering of a Black Keys song off their new album El Camino.

I'd love to hear what folks think, good bad or ugly!

For a band that has a nice late 60s / early 70s retro feel to it, I like the Black Keys.  And I do like what you have done here to make this more "proggy," at least with the 5/4 time signature.  Coming out with an EP sometime?

Thanks man - me dig 'em too obviously.

I really appreciate what you do, just the song is not my cup of tea but thumbs up (I'm an old fart)

Great song, with an actual cover (not a clone)!

Seeing you don't feature the drums, i'm guessing you using a drum machine or virtual kit of some sorts?

Thanks! I absolutely have a real drummer - didn't you catch the jiggling monkey around 0:08?

Srsly - yeah I use Superior Drummer, as do most TV & film composers. I work with a regular guy (George) when I can swing it (pun intended), but for this cover stuff its just easier. George is at about 0:15 here:
