I love watching Alex Riel playing. It's just sublime. His musical choices are stunning. I love the way he just backs right, right off when it's the right thing to do but keeps the energy going with intricate brushwork with just the right level of accenting on important points. His use of different cymbal tones is outstanding too.

I look at these guys play, then I look at my own hands and they just looked cramped and awkward!

I've watched this video more times than I care to admit. It's the dynamic control that floors me every, single, &$^@*(& time.
I know the feeling... Amazing musicians all...
