The Enemy Within                                       
As recorded by Rush
=========================
(In B minor)																																									
Music by Lee & Lifeson
Lyrics by Peart

Transcribed by Brendan Cahill (bcahill@ucsd.edu)

***Note: I'm not sure if all this is 100% accurate.  It will sound like the song because the chords are right and stuff--some of it is just my improvisation though.  However, most of it is basically what Geddy plays.  Enjoy:
