                             The Anarchist - Rush
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Cedar redaC

Tuning:EADGBe

Tempo: About 160 bpm

The guitar solo isn't perfect, but I think you'll get a decent idea.

This song from Clockwork Angels starts with one measure of Drums

Riff 1:
e|-------------------|------------------|----3-3---3-3---|---1-1----1-1------|
B|-------------------|------------------|----3-3---3-3---|---1-1----1-1------|
G|----7-7---7-7------|----7-7---7-7-----|----0-0---0-0---|---2-2----2-2------|

E|-------------------|------------------|----3-3---3-3---|---1-1----1-1------|

Riff 2(Bass starts): same progression, but the last two chords are 
                     power chords. Strummed as eighth notes.

Riff 3: Strummed eighth notes
e|---------------|-------------|----3-------|--------------------------------|
B|---------------|-------------|----3-------|--------------------------------|

Riff 4: Strummed eighth notes                   5 eighths then 3 eighths

D|----7----------|----6--------|----3-------|----5---------------2-----------|
A|----5----------|----5--------|----3-------|----5---------------2-----------|
E|---------------|-------------|----1-------|----3---------------0-----------|
Riff 5: E Power Chord held for 8 measures. 
        I use a tremolo effect set to triplet eighth notes.
e|---|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----------------------------------|
B|---|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----------------------------------|

Awesome tab! Just wanted to share that the solo is in A harmonic Minor! Allow me to share something that I've been working on getting down solid!

~A Harmonic Minor/E Phrygian Dominant~
~A-B-C-D-E-F-G#-A/E-F-G#-A-B-C-D-E~

The Steps between the notes are the same, just start at a different note.
A good way to remember is that Harm. Min. Has a raised 7th and Phryg. Dom. is the 5th scale degree of Harm. Min. scale!
