Keith Landry's Favorite tracks on alonetone

by Keith Landry



Uploaded .

As chance had it, I found myself in an acoustically great room, full of cajons! Well, they were unfinished cabinets actually, but they had lovely tones. Since this is the stuff dreams are made of, I had no choice but to seize the opportunity and take my mallets to them!

4/4 180bpm

@Richard: Many thanks! The quick rapid tone was created by rapidly striking the mallets on the highest pitched (smallest)cabinet. Thanks for listening!

So nice. One of these days I am going to take one of your fantastic drum tracks and add something. I shoudl try a jam over this right now with the mandolin.

Jeez, Norm, this is great stuff. This gives me the urge to start whacking stuff in the kitchen to see what sounds I can get. Now if I can just get everyone out of the house for a bit...

Seems a shame to finish those cabinets. Put doors on them and the wife will just fill them with dishes and useless stuff like food for the kids! They're such great instruments.

What the ? Is there anything that you won't strike rhythmically with a stick or something else.....don't let B+Q know( or whoever else sells DIY stuff over there if not B+Q )

well.... tell your wife you'll build her a new addition if she lets you keep this room as is :-) nice - the sound is so surprisingly robust and resonate in tone.

Good lord this is creative! It's amazing you percussion-heads buy any gear at all :) And a mesmerizing track as well. I could picture a tribe of cannibals playing this to their captured meal, making him/her relaxed, subdued and presumable more tender!

Damn! They did have lovely tones! I gotta download some of your stuff to jam to. Is that a bottle of Guinness on the shelf? Good man yourself!
