    I know the pieces fit cause I watched Rick explain them all

    After seeing Tool live last Friday, I feel another ‘what makes this song great’ about tool is due. How ‘bout ‘pneuma’? If you’re reading this @Rick Beato 🤞🤞🤞

    The isolated vocals during the breakdown are angel-like!

    Danny Carey has said that when he writes drum parts for Tool, he doesn’t count out the music. He just establishes a “pulse” and goes to town. That just blows my mind.

    A little hack when counting odd times is to say “sen” instead of “seven”. I’ve played every thing from subdivisions up to 19 beats per meter, and I promise that removing the word “Seven” and “eleven” from your vocabulary and replacing them with “sen” and “len” is completely worth it :D

    Every single song from Tool could have one of these videos, no kidding at all. These guys are fucking geniuses that are on par with every single composer you could possibly think of from classical music. There is no other band in the world remotely like them, thank God. They are among the best musicians to ever breathe air in the world.

    I feel like Rick should do an entire series on Tool. Anyone else feel the same?

    "cold silence has a tendency to atrophy any sense of compassion" Absolutely legendary writing and melody in the breakdown.

    The "cold silence" section is probably my favorite piece of music ever. It ripped me apart the first time I listened to it and it changed me forever

    Hearing Maynard’s isolated vocal track in the “cold silence” section. Indescribable.

    Rick Beato is actually 22 years old and looks damn good for someone who has worked out the theory behind Schism.

    Imagine having a year-long internship at Rick's studio to learn music theory in full. I'll be happy to do that in exchange of simple lodgings and food, and I'll do all the grunt work: moving studio equipment, amps, tuning instruments, cleaning up.... Anything for an education like the one Rick can provide.

    I have to say that "tool" is one of the most original bands in the last 20 years and maynard is a genius and all his bands are great.

  • Pablo Escabar

    I love the way Rick breaks it down without wrecking the song.

    I love 17th century, jazz and classic rock, I am familiar with and have sung Gregorian. Discovering Tool now for the first time....WHOAAA why didn’t I know this band before?

    This is an amazing series. I know nothing about the technical side of music, but I can't stop watching. What a great teacher.

    Praise the Lord! Rick is the very first Tool songs "analyst" on the internet, who actually knows what he's talking about AND is fun to listen to.

  • Jack Cartee

    Lord knows I've listened to enough Tool to tire of certain albums but listening to Rick dissect and Understand each part is like hearing these songs for the first time. Please do an entire Tool series!
