Trying to get up the nerve to "man up" and put some of my playing up for you guys. One of my favorite things to do is take a drumless tune, in this case "Little Wheel" by Buffy St. Marie (apologies to BennyK lol), and put a drum part over it. I think of it as having a conversation with the artist-reacting to the words and the vibe of the tune. I intentionally bathed this in reverb ala "The Boxer" to get a 60s kind of feel. Recording was done using a Zoom H6 and playing around in Audacity. No, I am not a recording engineer. (Yea, that was a joke).

Curious what your thoughts are...and if you think this even gets "close" to being a viable drum part....
