I knew once I saw the word "DING" it was about the triangle sample on "Book II!"

The LA Forum show was the greatest Rush show I have ever seen.

I've only seen them 60 times which in the big scheme of Rush Things is nothing!!!

I have no regrets or complaints.

RUSH is the greatest band in the fuckking Universe!!!

Technically not a triangle - it was a single crotale on Hemispheres.  I can't say if that is what the sample is.

The crotale in Prelude is classic. That whole jam is some of Rush's best instrumental writing and playing, if you ask me.

Hahah, me too!

It was fun seeing a whole arena full of people reach over and "air ding" when Neil hit that note.

There was some technical discussion about this crotale on here a few years ago.  It's a single crotale mounted between his high hat and first rack tom.  F#, I was brought up to believe

That was a moment I was looking right at Geddy. Totally remember him doing a little move.

I make sure to savor certain favorite musical moments during concerts, and the DING! is definitely one I made sure to savor.

Okay, so it's agreed that it's definitely "ding," right?  Not "ping," "ting," "cling," or anything like that?  :huh:

Whatever it is I'm doing - at work, running, doing dishes, literally ANYTHING...if Hemispheres is playing, I always do the "air ding" when that part comes up!

aah, the Hemispheres Ding. This version pierced me ears for some reason! I think the studio ding is a tad lower..

I totally missed that at the concert, so I'm glad it was posted.  I will always think of that moment of Geddy mimicking the "ding"now, whenever I hear it.

Hahah, me too!
