Forget rock and roll, this talented musician is making rock and biro-ll with insanely fast beats using just pens.
Lennie Simo, 19, from Lawrence, Massachusetts, has created a brand-new drumming style which doesn’t require any costly music gear.
Lennie is capable of making fast and accurate rhythms simply by tapping a on a table and some cups with a pair of pens.
He also uses his own cheeks and tongue to create a wider variety of sounds.
Lennie said: “I started in November 2011 when I was twelve years old.
“I got the idea from the people around me in my grade since it was a popular thing that everybody started doing suddenly.
“I’ve auditioned for America’s Got Talent five times.
“If I get on, it’ll mean a lot because it’s my number one goal in life at the moment.
“I want to perform something unique that’s never been on the show, and make pen tapping a thing that a lot of people know because it’s something that people have no idea what it is.”
