Good Stuff. I like that you have a picture of the Rush album on the screen relating to the song you're playing. Nice playing. Can I have that little bell? :wink:

Very well done! It took me back to those days where I'd play along to Rush records figuring out Neil's chops. You put some good effort in that presentation, I applaud you 8)

Awesome! I grew up listening to Rush and had Neal Peart in mind when I started playing the drums this year.

Question, did you play over the song, drums and all ,or did you cut out the drum track somehow?

Very well done. Long time Rush fan here, and you played those songs great. Neil would give a thumbs up. I remember playing a few Rush songs live many years ago when I had little experience under my belt, and looking back now, I'm glad they weren't on video.

great drumming. I like the way you created the medley, very cool transitions from song to song, and the songs you picked - good video.

Your kit setup is like Neil's too.

Great dedication to one of the true drummer icons who obviously influenced an entire generation of drummers, including myself.

Your playing was awesome.

Great video!!! I have a big question... How do you go about recording a great video like that? what camera did you use, how were your drums mic'd and mixed with the track of the music? I have some drum chops I like to share with the drum world so I want to get something of great quality like yours.
