Rush - In The End
From the CD 'Fly By Night' Written by Lee/Lifeson/Peart Mercury/Polygram Records 822542-2
This song opens with an acoustic 12 string playing in D, however there is some sort of electronic detuning which makes it appear to be in C. I will tab out the intro in C but be aware that it is played with the same fingering as Riff 2. Also, Riff 1 is played in the same position as Riff 4, but with the same electronic detuning. There is phaser almost throughout this song, but I will try to notate specifically where it appears. Previously tabbed by Tony Zimmerman .
| = not a standard bar line; just used to separate music ~ = vibrato or held note x = percussive note with no pitch; muted note h = hammer on p = pull off s = slide b = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret r = release bend to indicated string/fret / = slide up from infinity \ = slide down into infinity [5] = artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack) o \_ o / repeat sign (always look for these!)

[Riff 2] - I can usually hear a higher riff or single note run over this riff; it could be another guitar playing the octave or notes related the chord

You can take me for a little while. You can take me you can make me smile in the end.
[Riff 2] x1
[Riff 2] x2 /w lyrics:
Well I can shine like you shine, it don't make me brighter. But if I think like you think, it don't make my load much lighter.
[Riff 2] x1
(Now the phaser is used in an opposite fashion - for the chords and it is left out from the single notes.)
[Riff 2] x1 much softer

Well I can see what you mean, it just takes me longer. And I can feel what you feel, it just makes me stronger.
