for my tab of this tune, the solo riff is new...
well, i've never seen it tabbed this way before
and of the few videos i've monitored intently
what i'm able to see of what geddy's doing
...during this particular classic part...
...i can't say for sure he's not doin this
and it's the same positioning, anyways, but
too fast to swear for certain he's pullin-off

and even if it's not exactly right, how i have it
...this is an interpretation for the rest of us...
the version that's possible to play, and it passes
...the only note differences are all incidentals...
...try it out, see if ya like it...
if ya don't, call me up n yell at me
