-7-5-4--|    Listen to the recording to figure out the rhythm (too hard to
--------|    notate it in Ascii)(too hard to notate at all). In a few places
--------|    above there are numbers with no space between them. I did this
------0-|    where there were fast triplets, otherwise the spacing has no
             meaning. In a couple of spots in the song Geddy does some fast
16th notes in places (depending on how you notate it).  The smallest division
in this transcription would be an 8th note then.
 
                                    |-7-6-4---------------------------|
                     For example:   |.-----7-5-4-5-5-5---4-2-4-2-4-2-.|
                                    |.------------7-7-7-0^---^-------.|
                                    |--------------------|---|--------|
                                                         |   |
                                                         each 4 represents
                                                         two 16th notes.
 
Notice that he doesn't play the double notes each time this section repeats.
One final note, the vertical bars in the transcription represent dividers for
sections of the song that seemed logical to me. They're not meant to be
measures.  Also any vertical line with two dots next to it means to repeat the
section. Again, listen to the recording to find out how many times to repeat.

:  - Indicates that a part is to be repeated. This may be ommited, you should 
     hear it too.
_  - Indicates a hammer-on or pull-off (You should know which is appropriate)
>  - Indicates a bend-up or down or a slide. With a bend, the note to bend to

     follow-up note is the one to be slid to.
