I don't know if you're a fan of Uli Roth. He was heavily influenced by classical. Yngwie floored the tempo, but I never quite embraced that shift. The space between the notes are just as important as the actually notes.

Randy was a different generation. And it would have been great to hear where he took that style/genre.
I was never much of an Ozzy fan, until the Randy years (2 Albums I think ??)
Scorpions were great too. I used to play some of it, but hard to duplicate unless you had a harmonizer, or a really good second guitarist.

Agree with the space between the notes ... Gilmour is proof of that !

My friend a drum snob, always said Peart was a banger. (by the way he holds his sticks)
My friend is a jazz drummer with a ****ty attitude.

I immediately though it was Peart and his guys. He was known for going places most would not go. That fits the area I was driving through.

In my formative years (lol) I liked Black Sabbath. That lasted for one album, maybe two.
Today I have a renewed interest in Ozzy.

This is a young Zac playing in a parking lot to a crowd of about 6 people, like he was playing to 20K. You can see they barrowed the instruments from the music store, by the price tags on the bass, and the amps.

I think he was already starting to play with Ozzy

As much as I can appreciate the guitar skills he has, I grew up on rock n roll, when the shredding became popular I stuck with the classic rock and some blues.

For the few songs that I do that have some 'shred' in them, I kinda just improvise and get the main notes ... you could call it false-shredda

If you haven't read it, or know what it's about, it illustrates the obvious reasons why RUSH went on a hiatus. Truly heartbreaking story.

And he just keeps talking like that for 2 hrs, part 1 of 3? Wowzers!



Rest In Peace great rocker!!!

It's crazy how the cowbell intro and subsequent guitar licks make people everywhere want to peel out of a parking lot in a '69 Impala.. In slow motion.

Granted some what of a dry delivery, but apparently he was never known for embracing attention or the Limelight.

I'm not a drummer, but I still found his approach and dissection to be quite informative.

.

Neil held his sticks both ways, traditional and matched grip, depending on what type of music he was playing. With Rush he mostly used matched grip as that is common and better for rock music. He only started using traditional grip later in his career, during solos and When he was playing jazz.

Tell your friend to check out the “Burning for Buddy” tribute albums. Neil and many other world class drummers playing Buddy Rich songs. (Neil uses traditional grip on those albums)
