I don't care what kind of music you listen to or what instrument you might play, your jaw will drop while you are listening to this.

Neil Peart - The God of Percussionists

if anyone has any kick butt solos, on any instrument, please add them.

just so everyone knows, i grew up a drummer, my daughter is a percussionist and my son is interested in the percussion also. so that is why i only care about drummers. and since i was little i have been facsinated with Neil Peart.

here is an earlier version by Neil Peart

Tony Royster Jr. is 21 but this drum solo was performed at the age of 12

Black Fire Percussion from brooklyn

Neil Peart is indeed a living legend among musicians, his speed, accuracy and rhythm are just crazy. I often wonder just how tricky he can make his stuff, because In Rush he plays to be musical, not to be outlandishly technical. Id love to hear him playing some Jazz fusion just so I could see the true upper echelons of his playing...


Think about what he could do if he replaced Dennis Chambers in the Fusion bad CAB, and was playing alongside Bunny Brunel on bass and Tony Macalpine on guitars...

Flo Mounier - The best death metal drummer ever

This man adds chops to death metal that most drummers of the genre can't do.

Another video with a bit crisper sound to show off his blast beat abilities

Flo Mounier is a beast. As far as death metal drummers go, while their stlye is very restrictive and often more of a stamina contest than a proper musical undertaking, you should definitely check out Derek Roddy (Hate Eternal) and the Numerous drummers that Nile have had, they are musical way beyond most in Death metal.

Actually, just check Nile out, they are a really cool (but REALLY heavy band).

If its sheer speed you are after, then check out The Berzerker. Their drummers are amazing (their 1st and 3rd albums were done with drum machines, but all songs were played live at some point, 2nd and 4th albums used real drummers in the studio and live). The speed of these guys is phenomenal. No one Ive heard can match them, but aswell as being ridiculously fast they are very skilled aswell, using a drill n Bass style snare / kick interaction to keep it fresh and avoiding the death metal cliche of 8 bar blast patterns.

Some of my favourite bassists:

Victor Wooten
Victor Wooten Again
Flea from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers

For Drums its definatly Neal Peart. He's simply amazing.

Travis Barker is also pretty amazing.
