Learn from a master.

In A Work in Progress, Neil Peart documents the recording of Rush's album Test for Echo, as well as his own endless apprenticeship to the art of drumming. He uses the songs from Test for Echo to demonstrate concepts such as constructing a drum part, selecting rhythmic approaches, technique, odd time, the drummer's role in a band, drumset orchestration, and creative timekeeping. Special DVD features include a performance-only option and an interactive drumset.

Comments about Alfred Neil Peart Work In Progress DVD:

It's good if you are interested in the newer less progressive things. But there was nothing exciting as far as concert footage or anything. and makes a drum DVD without a drum solo!?

Wasted money

By Jennelle

from Marysville, WA

Comments about Alfred Neil Peart Work In Progress DVD:

If you like to listen to Neil talk this is great. If you really want to learn how he plays some of the parts he is so famous for this DVD will be of very little help. Poor camera angles and short, poor explanations. More time should have been devoted to instruction in playing vs his talking about his recent experiences. Way too expensive. I wish I had not purchased this sad DVD. Be forewarned!!

Very

By Slave2GN'R

from walpole, MA

Comments about Alfred Neil Peart Work In Progress DVD:

There is a good part and a bad part to this DVD. The good part is that Neil gives you good advice on song writing. He tells how to be unique and studious in your drumming. The part I don't like is that Neil doesn't suggest what to do regarding practicing and song writing. He tells you HIS technique and just expects you to go along doing everything his way. Drummers need to keep their options open and explore the techniques of other drummers and drumming styles. Neil doesn't mention this once in his "over 4 hours" DVD.

Neil Peart as a teacher

By The Styx Kid

from Missouri

Comments about Alfred Neil Peart Work In Progress DVD:

Neil Peart is by far the best rock drummer of all time. To have him teach you his technique is absolutely astounding. this instructional video is good for beginners and vetrans alike. Even if you don't learn how to play the songs, you still learn somthing from this video...

I love Neil Pert and he is one of the greatest but this video was just plain boring. Plus the music from test for echo just isnt any good.

Student / Master

By COL

from New Jersey

Comments about Alfred Neil Peart Work In Progress DVD:

If you like Rush and wanted to get an insight to the music they write this is it! I always wondered where they get ideas on their songs and this video not only explains that but the technique Neil uses. I will admit he does talk a lot, but don't we all? If he didn't talk how would we know how to do the things he explains. As far as no solos in the video that really doesn't bother but the warm-up he does is real nice. I suggest get if you want to learn more on your drumming, if you just want to watch and don't really want to learn then just get one of their videos. This is a must for any drummer of any level.

Neil is the greatest drummer.

By idontmatter

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Alfred Neil Peart Work In Progress DVD:

I admit, I don't think this is Neil's best performance. But his detail on his thinking, performance and practice as well as his breakdown of every part in each song helps incredibly to better become a player. This is NOT a Neil Peart performance video. This is intended for the fan and the student to help continue furtherance in drumming and to gain insight into the ways Neil writes his music.

Very cool

By Pvt_Nick

from Utah

Comments about Alfred Neil Peart Work In Progress DVD:

I don't play the drums, but I am a big Rush fan. I really enjoyed watching this video, because it gave some good insights into what goes into the music. The warmup is very cool, and Neil plays all of the songs from Test For Echo. Very cool!
