Rush - Red Lenses
From the CD 'Grace Under Pressure' Written by Lee/Lifeson/Peart Mercury/Polygram Records 818476-2
This tab is a royal mess. It was a real pain to do, and I hope you people appreciate it. This song isn't so popular, so why the hell did I tab it? The key is E, switching to Ab for the keyboard interludes.

| = not a standard bar line; just used to separate music ~ = vibrato or held note / = slide up from infinity \ = slide down into infinity o \_ o / repeat sign (always look for these!) [x35553] = fret box; this is a C chord - this is the same as standard tablature, only turned on its side. Tilt your head clockwise to read.
