              Be sure to mute this note before you go on, otherwise it sounds kinda bad. 
to the song for the rhythm and to get the vibrato on that G right

Slowly ease the palm mute so that when you get to the last E chord that you're not even 
at all. Don't forget to slide down from the D!

This is the riff where he uses the wah wah, you should start each chord with the pedal 
(toe up) and go all the way down before the next chord (just listen to the song...)

Stop the last chord (Ab) before Geddy sings "And this Garden Road, a-Woah!"

[ Song Progression ]
The entire song is 3 main parts, or 1 part that repeats 3 times with a little
bit of variations. The only difference is that at the very beginning and the
very end of the song Alex plays the main riff (Riff A) 4 times and then only 2
times in the other parts... you'll see what I mean.
