now i'm not saying that's not impressive as hell, because it is, but if i were her teacher i would slap her every time she drags the beat trying to show off with the twirls... you have to be able to nail the beat if you wanna act flashy, and well, she's just slightly off through a good portion of this. still, she's way better on drums at 13 than i was at anything when i was 13

to the hater(s): please post video of your drumming abilities when you were 13, k thanks.

cool stuff, even if she shows off a bit too much (gotta fix tendency early on!!), you gotta admire her enthusiasm.

anyone that says thats not impressive has never sat behind a kit. and i guess because beats are basically math she has a bit of an advantage. j/k.

i definitely thought the title of this implied that a 13 year old girl murdered a member of Rush..

i know someone else did too..

ditch the twirling. She could prolly bomb that out alot better. She would get behind the beat cause of them. Especially after some of those fills.

id rather here something that sounds smooth than something difficult somebody learned through repeating it a bunch of times. Not saying shes not good, but whats the point of drums if its noty flowing with beat easy or hard.

F U ALL!!!! I mention another group of kids with talent and I get a bunch of thumbs down. 2 other people disparage Asians they get thumbs up.

I wonder if she could still do all that without the twirling. Still, incredibly bad-ass!!

As a drummer, I am not impressed at all. First off there are people younger that play it better. And as amazing as Neil is, stil THE MOST OVERRATED DRUMMER EVER. Also the Most UNDERRATED LYRICIST OF ALL TIME.

I mean yeah, it's not that great. And Neil Peart is not overrated.

Not bad but she should think about improving her technique and not her flashy stick twirls.

This is cool, if you like this video. Search for igor the drummer on youtube. He is like 4 or 5 and wails.

Fukkk all you bitches complaining about how she twirls too much or is slightly off beat. This girl is cool and is way better at her age on the drums than you all will ever be at anything. I love this site but am always amazed at how many dildos say stupid shit on these posts.

I thinks its great that kids respect this great song and the great band RUSH. Long live Neil and YYZ! How about Working Man on the next Guitar Hero.

Me after the first couple of stick twirls:

*In Darth Vader voice* Impressive...

In the middle of the drum solo:

Most impressive.
