  3. He's fast, but that's about it.

    You want to see a miracle of human brain, check out Neil Peart or other REAL percussionists.

    When you're keeping several different time-signatures going at onceat about this speed, that's the REAL miracle!

  5. I must admit that I didn't watch the whole vid. I just went back and watched the rest - the stick-juggling and the blindfolded bit at the end were neat tricks, but just tricks - since it's all muscle-memory anyway.

    Back to my original point, check THIS out. Think about the rythms, syncopation, etc - and about the age of the man doing the playing!

    Further, he has no double-arm pedals, no tricks or gimmicks, in fact what would be considered a "low-end" drum kit by most kids today.

    But look what he DOES WITH IT!

  6. And here...

    Right around 3:30 he gets into the multiple time-signatures I was talking about...

    One foot playing the tambourine at 6/8, the other on bass at 4/4 and the sticks... welll.....

    All amazing, start to end, but the ability to manage 3 & 4 time signatures simultaneously is just stunning!
