Neil Peart Posts Drum Part

For those of you who want to play bass or guitar along with Neil Peart, unimpeded by the noodlings of those clowns Alex and Geddy, the wait is over.

Neil has posted the drum part to the Snakes and Arrows instrumental The Main Monkey Business at his Web site. You can now hear what Neil's drum part for that killer tune sounds like without any other instruments. It's highly cool. Enjoy...

Very cool. Thanks for turning me on to it. His drumming has become quite a bit more refined and thoughtful in his middle age. The style had some hints of Danny Carey, from Tool.

Damn. That's way cool. I just got the new modern drummer today and it looks like Neils contributed a track by track commentary on his drum parts for the new CD.

Hey armen - yes I have seen that and even posted on it last year here: http://isorski.blogspot.com/2006/08/awesome-animation.html

I can't begin to image the amount of work that took. It's highly cool. Thanks for posting, man!
