Rush - BU2B

This was tougher to tab than Caravan, but really harder to play. The pre-chorus parts
might give you trouble. Geddy uses his flamenco and it give it kind of a chordal sound so
it'll take work to match. Listen carefully to the slides because he changes the rhythm 
between the first and second notes occasionally to give it a little more attitude.

Also note that each part never is exactly the same. for example, the choruses follow the
same pattern and basic structure, but the little licks and nuances change throughout.

Enjoy! And thank 13Kelly13 for this tab because although I started months ago, I forgot
to finish until he requested it!

Perfect tab, much harder than Caravan, lol.

Thanks again for the tab :)
I really need to work on figuring these out myself and stop being so damn lazy :P

Really a great tab! And I too thought you were kidding when you said that it was harder to play than Caravan!! I find it easier to play the chorus in the first position to maintain Geddy's flamingo style. GREAT JOB!
