Amazing 11 Year Old Girl Drummer - Drum Cover To RUSH - Tom Sawyer - Video Included

Amazing Talent To Rush's Tom Sawyer

I was YouTube surfing looking for some Rush songs (you know how you get in the mood at times!) and low and behold I ran across this video.  It is a cover to Rush's Tom Sawyer with 11 year old Leticia Santos on drums.

It is always intriguing to watch the younger generations appreciate such music, but it is amazing to
see them actually take part in the music! :)

You can search Leticia Santos on YouTube or click in on this video and follow links for more. I do believe she is 13 or 14 now.  You can also visit her band's website: Black Aces. You can visit her website here.

In order to learn how to play the drums to this song, this young lady is very likely to be familiar with the lyrics to "Tom Sawyer" by Rush.  I have included the lyrics below the video.



RUSH LYRICS
"Tom Sawyer"

A modern day warrior
Mean, mean stride
Today's Tom Sawyer
Mean, mean pride

Though his mind is not for rent
Don't put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day's events
The river

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his skies are wide

Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent
But change is

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide

Exit the warrior
Today's Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day
