Okay, okay, this isn't Ultimate-Drum.com...But, still, we all have amazing, broad musical appreciations, don't we?

Fill:

"a fill is a short musical passage, riff, or rhythmic sound which helps to sustain the listener's attention during a break between the phrases of a melody."

I'm not a drummer, although I am exceptionally good at drumming, but I love fills. Seriously.

This is why I'm a huge Rush (Woah, Fassa speech alert.) and Dream Theater fan.

So, my favourite fill ever has to be this one, in Rush - 2112. 4:45 (The bit before Geddy's huge, shrieking, piercing "We've taken care of everything
The words you hear, the songs you sing
The pictures that give pleasure to your eyes"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYSW73GWRUw

The whole song, if you know it (it's 20ish minutes long) is actually full of amazing fills, but that one is my favourite.

Basically, I've won this thread already...But, comon', I challenge you to show me a fill that I prefer to mine!
If you do, I promise, you'll get huge amount of cookies, in e-form.

GO.
Wait.

I dont know if it's technically a fill, but all of Porcelain Heart by Opeth. Im not a huge fan of that band, but the drums kick ass.
...In my opinion.

Phil Collins- In The Air Tonight

3:40 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=manxPVTLth8

Sorry, but now we can end the thread.

It's either that or Roger Taylor's fill before the second chorus of Fat Bottomed Girls.

The drum fill intro to Bullet for my valentine's song Scream Aim Fire sounds swell

That's your favourite Neil Peart fill? I've listened to a lot of Rush, and there's a lot of fills I like better than that one. Unfortunately, I can't come up with any examples right now and I don't feel like listening to Rush songs hunting for drum fills.

Well, I dunno, it just hits me. Comes right before the singing, fits in perfectly in my opinion. I've heard more technical things from Neil, but that one is still my favourite, I'm not really 100% sure why.
Wait.

Dark Eternal Night by Dream Theater, the 9 beat break just before the singing starts for Mike Portnoy to unleash his fury

Kashmir, 7:17.

Any other answer is wrong.


dont know what version you're listening to but i've just listened to two versions of the song (mothership and phsyical graffiti) and theres no drum fill at 7:17

theres a good one that starts at 7:43 and lasts for 3/4 seconds though
(its also one of my favourites)


highway star - deep purple 0:55
space truckin' -deep purple 0:20

are good too

Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

Why did I know that you were going to post that?


OT, if 4:40 of this counts, I'd say it is the best. Especially in the context of the whole song, but it is long...

It's my job! I don't really like it that much, but it's certainly influential in that entiee genres have come from it.

But really, I think I'll add my +1 to In the Air Tonight.

Im not going to argue technicalities, and within a few more posts I can see this descending into another "whos the best drummer" thread.
But for me, my favourites woud include...
The 'Ruin' fill from the Lamb of God song around 2.40 ish.
The intro to Bulldozer by Machine Head
aaaaaaand....the one random fill around 1.47ish in Only One by Slipknot. All I can think of right now.

Ooh, that's awesome. You've nearly earned e-cookies, but I just about prefer mine.

Also, guys, post videos as well. No body is ever going to bother to type it into YouTube.
Wait.

Fill in question is at 1:18. Simple but effective, I've always been a fan of it.

I highly recommend the whole song though, and everything they've ever done. Epic, epic band.

EDIT: And I mean epic as in the real definition of the word. Not just "really good", although they fit that description too

Neil Peart....

Nope, you're all wrong. 2112 is among one of Neil Peart's best drum tracks. Although I prefer the fill from The Color of Right, at around 1.10.

Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2M9zvDfzr8A

Here you can both hear the song, see the drums and as a bonus there's some eye candy behind the drumkit.

I hear no fill
My name is Danny. Call me that.

Hey Fassa, I knew I'd find you by making this thread!

And see, guys, I told you 2112 has epic drum fills, even Fassa, the biggest Peart fan...girl ever, agreed with me!
Wait.

You really think a thread with Neil Peart in it would escape my Rush radar?

Maybe I should get some people, posting some threads, with Neil Peart in there somewhere. Skilfully hidden, so that maybe, just maybe, we can fail your Neil Peart radar!
