One addition to save space that I used, in the 5th staff, the {'s mean that 
the entire section enclosed in them is repeated. So actually you play the 
first part after the {'s three times, and the next one once, THEN play the 
first part over again three times and the second part once. Listen to 
the record...

The first E of this transcription is actually Geddy's bass synth.

--
Explanation on used symbols:

|  - A pair of these indicate a part of music, not the usuals bars.
:  - Indicates that a part is to be repeated. 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. With a bend, the note to bend to
     is between '(' and ')'. Use the whammy for a downbend. With a slide, the
     follow-up note is the one to be slid to.
!  - Indicates vibrato.
^  - Indicates a tapped harmonic. Is printed below the note.
.  - Under the strings, it indicates the note is staccato (short).
\  - Indicates a general slide downwards from note, to no note in particular.
AH - Indicates adding artificial harmonic with pick hand.
