                            NEW WORLD MAN (Bassline)
                               As recorded by Rush
              (From the 1982 Album SIGNALS (MERCURY 314 534 633-2))

Words by PeartMusic by Lee and Lifeson
Arranged by Rush and Terry Brown
Transcribed by Erik Habbinga, Sean Jones, & Richard J. Soto

Copyright 1982 Core Music Publishing
Tab v2.01  2002-05-21  

The bass synth which opens the song continues and plays throughout the verses 
and they seem to be various arpeggiations. 
It's buried too far in the mix & too random to tab completely so only the 
essential opening 4 measures are tabbed here.
