"Vital Signs"
Music: Lee/Lifeson
Lyrics: Peart
off of Moving Pictures
tabbed by: J-Punk (kalwin@seidata.com)


Notes:
 This is kind of 2 guitars for 1.  Guitar 1 (the top 3 strings) is
 clean with chorusing. Guitar 2 (the bottom 3 strings) is distorted.
 I supplied the counting (this one's tricky).

INTRO
(fade in)      intro fill
     1 2 3 4    1(2)+ + +   1 2 (3,4)
e:---8-8-8-8--|-8---6-3-4-|-4-1------|
B:---8-8-8-8-*|-8---6-3-4-|-4-1------|
G:4--8-8-8-8--|-8---7-3-5-|-5-1------|
D:4-----------|-----------|----------|
A:-----------*|-----------|----------|
E:------------|-----------|----------|


VERSE
   2 4   2 +   1 3   1 + 4
e:-8-4-|-8-8-|-8-4-|-8-8-8-|
B:-8-4-|-8-8-|-8-4-|-8-8-8-|
G:-8-5-|-8-8-|-8-5-|-8-8-8-|
D:-----|-----|-----|-------|
A:-----|-----|-----|-------|
E:-----|-----|-----|-------|

Play verse x5 (fill to prechorus 5th x, I can't figure it out)


PRECHORUS
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
e:-----------------|------------------|
B:-----------------|-----------------*|
G:-----------------|------------------|
D:-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-|-8-8-8-8-------8--|
A:-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-|-8-8-8-8---6---8-*|
E:-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|-6-6-6-6-8---8-6--|

Play a few times, then
   1 +  +  +    +  + 3
e:-----------|---------|
B:-----------|---------|
G:-----------|---------|
D:-6-6-13-13-|-13-12-8-|
A:-6-6-13-13-|-13-12-6-|
E:-4-4-11-11-|-11-10-6-|

Gtr 2 can use  X688XX and   X577XX
       for   (11)(13)(13)XXX and (10)(12)(12)XXX
for tab sake, I used the high chords

Play Prechorus some more,then play the intro fill


CHORUS
    2 +  4   2 + 4 +   2 + 4   2 + 4 +
e:-------8-|---------|-----6-|---------|
B:-------8-|---------|-----6-|---------|

D:-10-10---|-8-8-8-8-|-8-8---|-6-6-6-6-|
A:-10-10---|-8-8-8-8-|-8-8---|-6-6-6-6-|
E:--8--8---|-6-6-6-6-|-6-6---|-4-4-4-4-|--8

then play prechorus fill,chorus, & intro riff

go back to verse & repeat song w/variations


OUTRO

rest a few bars, then
    1   1   1   1 3
e:--8-|-6-|-4-|-4-6--|
B:--8-|-6-|-4-|-4-6-*|
G:--8-|-7-|-5-|-5-7--|
D:-10-|-8-|-6-|-6-8--|
A:-10-|-8-|-6-|-6-8-*|
E:--8-|-6-|-4-|-4-6--|

Repeat w/variations & ad-libs until fade.
