In the End  Rush

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 4] x1 /w lyrics:
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
[Riff 2] x2 /w lyrics:
Well I can see what you mean, it just takes me longer.
And I can feel what you feel, it just makes me stronger.
[Riff 2] x1
