That guy has skills! I always thought the drums were on the keyboard as a laugh, never seen anyone use them! Wow!

Nice video man, thanks!

Mind you, I don't think anyone said pianists couldn't groove, lolz. :p

Skills, indeed. Anyway, keyboards can groove, just listen to uncle Herbie to see what I mean...

Don't worry I couldn't come up with and catchy thread title so I thought this one would get some attention, but I'm not one who thinks pianists can't groove. I'm actually a classical piano player before being a drummer and love the instrument. I just thought the guy in this video had some serious skills playing this song and wanted to share it.

Now lets see him do it on some real drums. I'm almost dead certain that he can.

I used to do the same things on my church keyboard. We didn't have space for the drums when doing a mini christmas thing in a community hall so I told them to pack the keyboard instead. I too am a classically trained pianist and having those fingers working playing all sorts of music, combining that with the drum grooves that I use regularly, yeah the end results are similar. Of course I hadn't time to actually work out my fills so this dude is way way better.

*psst... it's actually way easier to coordinate fingers than hands and legs... =D

His other video is rather impressive too.

I'm pretty sure its fake... i mean, he uses ghost notes, and the sound of his ride on the first video changes a little bit if you listen from 1 minute onward. And how can he possibley hit the keys that fast at 2:14 on the second video? Also on the first video, the sound of his snare changes a lot, but im pretty sure keys have multiple snare sounds so that might not be a problem.

In my opinion I don't think it is. Watch and listen carefully and you will notice he's execution is not perfect (although god damn amazing!) Pulling off a fake with those "flaws" would be really an über pain in the backside to accomplish. Do not underestimate the speed at which a trained pianist can strike keys. Watch the video again and you can see that the strokes correspond to the sound at that 2:14 part. Concerning the multiple sounds, like you said he has a few keys assigned to snare tones and also has a dynamic touch keyboard - the sound can change depending on the pressure applied to the keys. I really don't think this is a fake...

There are also keyboards which have tiny snare fills (just like, 1/8) with ghost notes included, so it might be those you are referring to.
