  2. This is it. Some decent competition from Moving Pictures, but it was clearly a race between these two behemoths in the last poll. You can choose only one, which one shall it be?
  3. Hello fellow fans I have always loved Alex as a player and songwriter. But more than that he influenced me so much as a guitar player when I was young because of his brilliant full sound and how he could make up for lack of keyboards in a 3 piece band and make them sound just as full as Floyd, Genesis and Yes etc. Geddy and Neil are perhaps the virtuoso musicians in the band but Alex did 2 jobs of creating the texture an fullness that those other Prog bands did with guitar and synths. I would like to get peoples opinions on Alex' best sound and their reason if that is OK. I will kick off with my opinion, it is just an opinion. My personal favourite is "The Trees". I think he just laid down the bar there. The equipment I believe was his ES355 guitar (I think he may have used it in stereo on this track, please correct me if I am wrong. The Gibson ES355 was a stereo guitar but Alex said he had it rewired to mono for live work). He also had the Hiwatt 100w heads through cabs with 12 inch JBL speakers and a Roland Space Echo/Chorus, MXR stereo flanger and MXR tone boost. Please feel free to correct me. The combination of the effects with the semi acoustic 355 and the Hiwatt just gave an amazing sound. Huge and overdriven in a powerful way but not distorted or "fizzy". The use of the semi acoustic and the Hiwatt gave so much power yet a softer cleaner tone than say a Marshall JMP100 (one of which I own) and a Les Paul. I think Alex used a Les Paul and Marshalls on "All the World's a Stage" probably to get the volume he needed in a live situation, but that sound on the live album did not have the clarity or purity of his studio work. Anyone agree or disagree? would love to hear opinions. Best Wishes Steve Smith

  5. More importantly, a Hemispheres/YYZ related question. A silly technical question, but it's bugging me a little. First, Hemispheres. So, at the minute-59 mark of the song, we hear a distinct twinkling sound with a galloping kind of rhythm, like a triangle or something. And Neil Peart did have triangles on his set around that time... http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7134/7526506168_efc527af22_z.jpg But there are other percussion items on his set that could make a similar sound. He had crotales mounted atop his tubular bells... http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2097/2126130903_e0cd40a8fd_z.jpg?zz=1 ...there was a set of orchestra bells in the ballpark of his timbales and concert toms... http://stupuola.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/neil-peart.jpg ...and possibly the bell of his ride cymbal (although I am skeptical of this). I am leaning more towards the crotales, but they seem inconvenient due to their placement, since at the 2:06 mark he moves over to the hi hats with the same rhythm, and that would be a considerable distance to travel in such short time! The orchestra bells would seem more likely, but then again... Another question: What note/pitch/tone/whatever is it exactly? I would like to make the addition of the mystery percussion to my current kit, but I want to know exactly what it is I need to buy so I don't end up with a kit bigger than Neil's! I know crotales each have a different tune/note, so I want that one, not thirteen! Is there any way we can figure it out if we haven't already? The same goes for the sound at the very beginning of YYZ. I just can't think of what it is. I am leaning more towards triangle on this one, but the question still stands...
  6. Very quiet on the Rush front. Has anyone ever used Hemispheres as an alarm clock? When hosting parties and wanting to get rid of people in the morning, used to crank the volume up, put Hemispheres on and watch and wait.
