Lorraine Posted February 6, 2013 Share Posted February 6, 2013 I am someone who knows absolutely nothing about music [other than I have always loved it] or how to play an instrument. Yesterday, as I was watching them do Natural Science, I was astounded by all the tempo changes. In fact, they do more tempo changes in their songs than most other bands. Has anyone else noticed that? While watching Rush in Rio, I saw those songs as they once were. Just lyrics written by Neil on a piece of paper. He gives that paper to Geddy and Alex. What you are watching or listening to is their creation. It got me to thinking how absolutely brilliant they are. How do they even start to write the music? Do they read the lyrics and hear a tune in their head? For a talentless person such as myself, these things boggle my mind. I also got to wondering if Neil is ever disappointed with the music that is written to his lyrics. Has this ever struck anyone else here? Moving right along... I have noticed that lead guitarists seem to always be watching themselves playing, while bass guitarists are usually the ones who engage the audience and are always looking up and out. Is there a reason for this? Another thing, when Neil tosses his drum stick in the air, or spins/twirls it around, I wonder how much practice it took to do that. Has he ever not caught it? Or has the drum stick twirled itself right out of his hand ever? I am sorry if these questions sound lame, but ... what can I say??? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
