Neil is right. It is hard to play. However, there are many other Rush songs
that are much more challenging to play than Tom Sawyer.

And really, there is so much music today that you cant really say who's
better than who, and it wouldnt be fair to the musicians anyway. If you get
a jazz drummer and a metal drummer together to do a drum off, you're gonna
find diverse tendencies between the two players and 100% of the time (or at
least it should be) people cant decide who's better than who. The jazz
drummer plays amazing jazz, but cant play metal, and vise versa. Same goes
for just about every other instrument :p

Like karaoke singers who think, because they can nail a song at a karaoke
bar, that they're qualified to jump up and sing with a live band. And then,
when the live musicians don't sound exactly like the recorded backup
tracks, they get completely lost...

Author whateverman666 (2 years)
I've often thought Neil was 3 years behind the curve in terms of technique.
Right around the time the crazy jazz & fusion players were going Moeller,
Neil was doing what I was doing (but SOOOO much better): making his matched
grip as relaxed as possible. If he had a few more years to discover how to
make the stick work for him, Rush would have been a different band. He's
still damned amazing, and I wish I could buy that man as much scotch as his
influence on me represents.

its a hard song. Any drummer knows that. If you say its an easy song to
play, you simply aren't telling the truth. Musicians like Neil Peart are so
far out in front of the rest of us that it is, in my opinion, and INSULT
for any of us to even attempt to critique his playing.

Author Dwayne Talkington (2 years)
I've seen many percussionist and drummers live. When I saw Rush the last
time Neil did a solo that was simply amazing and was playing half of it
with one arm while change sounds on electric drum pads. That alone was
impressive but then doing that with strobe lights and the drum kit on a
turn table spinning around. Just simply amazing. I've also seen him do a
jazz set with a 5 piece set and still sound just as amazing with a use of
different sticks and brushes and even his hands.

Author rk6314 (1 year)
As a kid, I played the guitar part pretty much with power chords. It
sounded *like* Tom Sawyer, but it really wasn't. I got a little more
sophisticated with my playing and picked up the killer voicings he uses for
those chords and that made all the difference. Though I'm not a drummer, I
can still hear the nuances in the drumming. The basic beat isn't tough, but
getting all those extra nuances in there is what makes it shine.

musician fanboyism, but the case for Peart is kinda irrefutable, he IS one
of the best drummers of all time.
