Rush - Freeze (Part IV of "Fear")
From the album Vapor Trails (Atlantic Records)
Copyright 2002 Core Music Publishing
Music by Lee and Lifeson
Lyric by Peart

Transcribed by Travis Lausch

Notes:

	Unlike my previous submission to the R.T.P., this tab was created
from the ground up. This tab is (I'd say) at least 90% correct, and took me 
a long time to transcribe. The time signatures were a bitch to get. (I still 
don't know if they're 100% correct), but for the most part, everything is
here.

	It sounds like Alex went for some kind of textural feel here (as on
the rest of Vapor Trails), and as such, there is a lot of ad-libbing.
