Default Re: Neil Peart


Ive got to say its the first time i have heard neil and un technical in the same sentence.

I met neil 1988 when i was in Toronto doing a tattoo in the Skydome with my own band.

He came over to us and complemented us on our technical ability.

He then asked me to show him some of our own more technical movement.

Things like flam para triplets, paradiddle diddles which were not heard of in kit drumming at the time and open single work including doubles with 5s and 7s.
Neil uses all of these movements to this day and picked them up reasonably quickly( much much much quicker than any other kit drummer i had came across) and to a high standard.

How many missed notes or rim shots do you hear between drums?
How many missed notes when he plays single runs?
