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!)


[Intro] - strum freely (notes in ()'s are not played on every repeat)

[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

    D     G    F     C     D     G     (with phaser)
e:--2--2--3~---------0~----2--2--3--3--------------------------------|

A:--------2~---3--3--3~----------2--2---0--3------2------0-----------|

[Riff 3] - The last note of Riff 2 is not played when this riff follows it

[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
