Default Re: Neil Peart

The slopiness comment has nothing to do with him varying what he plays. I am refering to technique alone. The way Neils body moves has always seemed a little stiff to me. In "Anatomy" his arms are moving a lot more than they did in the past.

I'm not saying slopiness is bad. I used to think that way...that's why I couldn't stand elvin jones for a long time. Although I still can't stand watching Ari Hoenig. He makes drumming look painful. Listening is great though.

I'm not a technical freak. It's just an observation that he uses a lot of arms now.
