A Drum Beatin'

Drummer Brad Kuehner of Alabama rock band "Atticus Avenue" recently worked some extra practice time into his schedule by giving his son, Max, a "drum beatin'."

That is he used his toddler as an improvised drum kit.

Kuehner writes on Facebook that what you hear in the video wasn't "altered or mixed or enhanced in any way."

Brad's rhythms are impressive on their own, but what really makes the video is Max's contribution. He punctuates the melody with adorable giggles and squeaks which line up perfectly with his dad's rhythm.

The end result sounds like a expertly-mixed track from a professional DJ, complete with sound effects.

After just 5 days being posted it's been viewed by more than 350,000 people on YouTube
