It's very distressing that on a forum of Rush fans we only have ten members who ping all the time, four who ping some of the time, and :facepalm: two who don't know what I am talking about.  :facepalm:

And an untold number of others who apparently don't care about their civic duty as Rush fans...

:yes:   Very distressing.  :(

I never know what you are talking about.

Are you speaking about llamas?

:o

You don't like Hemispheres anyway if I recall.  So you get a pass.

The Ping!!! part in the Prelude is what I am talking about.  :)

I love HEMISPHERES!

I just don't rank it as high as most here...butni easily  could!

Only sometimes.  I don't listen to Hemispheres very much, because after Prelude the whole song goes to s***.  I did do it live in Newark.

I didn't have a clue what we were talking about until I played Hemispheres and caught it. I do the "ding" every time and move my finger in the air and I didn't even realize that was the "ding."
The "ding" reminds me of an idea popping up in Neil's head, perhaps sensing trouble with the trees...

If you mean in the Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres overture, then yes, I always do the ping.

Omg Lorraine it's not a ping it's a ding!! Real Rush fans and dialup divas alike should know this!! Lol

is this the part in Hemispheres where Neil hits the triangle?
For the technically curious, it's not a triangle, but a crotale, which is a small Tibetan cymbal, usually found on pairs as a finger-held "ting" machine...

...or as part of larger orchestral set..

Rock drummers will use a single one (like this one made by Zildjian) as part of their kit...

Ting on!

Plenty of "ting" here...mixed with the longer "ziiiing" of bowed crotales.  You may here some YYZ in here...

Nice!
Interesting to see his dampening technique.
Thanks for the find, Goose!
