      Just watched you drumming to I Burn. It looked like your arms were going to explode! (or spontaneously combust at the very least)

        Well tell that to the community! It comes through in your work that you love what you do bud and a lot of people would odds on say that part of RvB's magic and what makes it great is the music. I've nearly every single and all recent albums that've been on iTunes and I have them playing every day at some point or other. It's good to know you guys at RT are so down to earth but at the same time capable of creating something awesome. Got to respect that.

        I haven't mastered ANY instrument!!! haha, not even CLOSE!! I'm honestly not that great at either guitar or keys, I'm like.....good enough on each instrument to prop myself up on the other.

        Daaaamn Jeff. Is there any instrument you HAVEN'T mastered?? :S :D. Yeah I know where you're coming from. I'm gradually bringing the tempo up whenever I'm fooling around on the kit. Extraction is my high point at the moment. Anything beyond that for me is asking for trouble ha.

        It's been a while, but mostly likely what it is: he probably played it all the way through, but there are probably mistakes in there, based on "losing it" after a certain amount of time. So, there are probably some parts removed and replaced with better versions. Also you should know that a lot of times it's not a drummer, it me playing drums on a keyboard (and I can play 16th notes forever on a keyboard, I have so many more finger than drummers have feet!!!!). A lot of stuff on S8 is real drums, but S9 is all me playing keyboard drums. Except Cant Trust, thats a drummer.

        Amen to that Jeff!. I might have asked you this on another occasion but is the really long double bass segments in Ice Fight and the Revelation Suite looped or is it that actually the drummer keeping it going that long? I've listened to both more times than I can count and I'm amazed every single time by how long the double bass goes on for. It's like a damn machine gun!! haha.

        haha , yeah most drummers cant play Ice Fight--it just lasts too long. Those metal guys that can do that shit are SERIOUS athletes!!

        Extraction maybe. But Ice Fight? My measly single pedal would not cope with the tempo! Scratch that, my legs would be knotted from cramps! On your knees is fun to play though. Has a nice steady tempo and it's easy for a play by ear drummer to pick up. I'll keep ya posted and the vid will hopefully be up in the next week. I'll leave you get back to work....or play...both?? Ha

      CLOSE to tears? CLOSE? Then Casey's not getting paid. SHe only gets paid when people actually cry. smiley8.gif

      Glad you like the music! Thanks so much for your kind words, it's deeply appreciated.

      Ha-yeah, a lot of the drum parts are really hard. Well, I suppose it depends on your definition of hard. I guess if you are the drummer in Mastodon they are not hard. Please uplad some videos of you playing drums to the songs I would LOVE to check it out!!!!!
