Laus Deo Semper.
This is a drum cover of Hillsong United's song, Take It All.
As with the Planetshakers song, I was really scared of doing a praise+worship song as a "cover" since I find it pretty darn weird jamming and improvising (and especially "entertaining"..) with a song intended to give glory to God. A lot of people have been asking about a few p+w songs, so I decided the only way I could record it was if I in fact really DID praise and worship God while playing this, so I got really into it :) Because of that, this is a really personal performance, and so i'm a bit scared of uploading it because of it being a lot more personal than just another song.
Laus Deo Semper.
I have to emphasize, I know calling this a "cover" is wrong, seeing as I only PARTLY stayed true to the song's drums (or lack thereof), through the WHOLE song I play some variations of the beats, phrasing and fills, since 99% of what I play is improvised. Even though I have done my fair share of session and studio drumming, that has little to zero effect on these video's, I kind of see them as live performances. I'm NOT aiming to be accurate to the original drums, I'm just aiming to enjoy myself. And I thoroughly succeeded in doing that, might I add :)
