To me, it's more a Ting! than a "Ding", but yes, nearly all the time.
Ting is Irish for "Thing"...so Ye'll have to leave that Ting alone

You know what i like about it?  it's not something you have to tense yourself up to wait for.  It's very leisurely, and you can't miss being accurate!  :)

Looks like you and I are the only two so far who do it all the time.

I just took the liberty of raising my Rush fandom status.

Upon further reflection, I've identified the difference between Ding and Ting as a crispness in the initial sound.  At least to my ears :yes:

You are right.  Ding is too heavy a word to describe it.  

So, for the last time, I edited my poll and put back my Ping, but included Ting and Ding.

Now there is something for everyone.

I hope.  :)

And I'm glad that I set it up so we know who the folks are by name who actually voted "What are you talking about?"  :cool:

For some reason I always put a silly look on my face when I do it too because it's such a silly moment but I can't hep myself from doing it every time I listen to the song.

I think I got distracted once and missed it.  I felt very bad.

Alex makes a lot of those faces, if you watch him enough. You probably know the ones I mean.

I don't feel really bad if I miss the ping...there are other percussion moments on that album that I feel that way about, if I miss them.

Were you  in the mood about a half hour before you posted that?

Oh, wait, you're on Pacific time.

Over here, it was a quarter to eight...that's what I was referring to.

I think it's more of a ding. At least that's what I've always called it.

:blah:   Folks, that was Mr. JD from the Cincinnati area where Rush got their big break.  He says he always called it a ding.  Anyone have a response to that?

You see, we lease this machine back from the company we sold it to, and that way it comes under the monthly current budget and not the capital account!

I'd like to phrase my response to that in the form of a question, Alex...

JD, you live in the Cincinnati area?? I'm in Dayton.

I drive about halfway to Cinci for work every day.
