"Dreamline" tabs for guitar
Transcription by: Joe T. Kung (jtkung@caf.mit.edu)
Intro and verse: (played with extreme compression and distortion, muted picking)
-----5-0-5-7-5-0-----5-0-5-7-5-9-| -0-7-------------0-7-------------| ---------------------------------| ---------------------------------| ---------------------------------| ---------------------------------| [repeat 5 times for verse]
sixth time (cut off intro lick):
-----5-0-5-7-5-0-----5-0-| -0-7-------------0-7-----| -------------------------| -------------------------| -------------------------| -------------------------|
Then the song jumps into the powerchords.
Powerchords (all no-3rds, see *)
G, F#, E, G, F#, D (then some fills, see **) F#, E, B, C, D, E G, F#, E G, F#, D (again, see **) F#, E, B C, D, E
Then the into intro/verse sequence again, followed by power-chords. After that the "cut off intro lick".
The song then goes into the chorus ("We are young ...") section which doesn't sound like there's any distinct guitar parts, but chords that would go well are :
Asus2, Gmaj, Dmaj, and Cmaj, based on Geddy's bass line. You can just follow along with Geddy and do a muted rhythm with the guitar.
Then the intro/verse and powerchord part again. After this, the solo begins:
----------------------------------------------22>(24)-(24)-(24)-(24)-| ---------10--8!--12--15>(17)-(17)-(17)->15---------------------------| -7---7---------------------------------------------------------------| ---------------------------------------------------------------------| ---------------------------------------------------------------------| ---------------------------------------------------------------------| light whammy after sounding drone note

-------22>(24)-(24)-(24)-(24)---------------------------| -------------------------------(17)>15-12----15>(17)>15-| ------------------------------------------14------------| --------------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------| ---0----------------------------------------------------| dive bomb
----12-14-15-12-14-15-17-14-15--15>17--17-15-17>(19)>17-| (feedback & sustain) -15-----------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------|
which is followed again by the chorus, and then the power chord section for the last time, ending on E.
The song is probably cut with a PRS fitted with Evans active single-coils and played thru a GK preamp (the newer model).
* No-3rd chords (powerchords) can be played like this:
--- This example is a D no-3rd. The root note is played on the A --- string. -7- -7- -5- ---
** The fill section is like :
-2-----4--2-| ---3--------| -----2------| ------------| ------------| ------------|
-- Legend:

This may be ommited, you should hear it too. _ - Indicates a hammer-on or pull-off (You should know which is appropriate) > - Indicates a bend-up or down or a slide.
