Comments to Paulo E. Tuasca 
This may sound a little odd coming from a guitar player, but I've tabbed
most of the base keyboards, all the keyboards solos, and the two flute solos,
but can't figure out what Latimer is arpeggiating throughout this song!
Anyway, it's a beautiful piece and it's worth playing this arranged
stuff on guitar. Timing is as accurate as I can, and very subtle changes
happen here and there. Listen to the record and don't forget to have fun!

Lyrics:The sun has left the skyNow you can close your eyesLeave the world behind until tomorrowThe dream is like a songIt leads you on and onThe piper plays his tune so you must followSo far beyond the skyNot knowing how or whyYou realize this feeling is foreverAnd though another dayMay steal your dreams awayYou and the song will always stay togetherTablature Explanation:NT = Nashville Tuning is when the low E, A, D & G strings are replaced withlighter gauge strings and tuned one octave higher than normal.| = bar separating measures~ = vibratox = percussive note with no pitch; muted note. = staccato; mute the note immediately after striking ith = hammerp = pulls = slide (used when \ or / don't fit)^ = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret shown in parenthesis ()r = release bend (string/fret may be indicated)t = fret board tap (not many of these with Rush)/ = slide up\ = slide downx/ = pick slide upx\ = pick slide down<5> = natural harmonic (lightly touch the string at fret indicated)[5] = artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)(5) = note sustained from previous measureo =\ repeat signo =/DC = "Da capo" - means "from the head", when you see these initialsyou go back to the beginning of the piece of music.DS = "Dal segno" - means "from the sign", go back in the tabulatureonly as far as the (%) sign.Coda = A passage at the end of a movement or composition that bringsit to a formal close.AlCoda = means "to the tail", tells you that you must go to the endsection which starts with the Coda sign (+).RF = repeat and faderit = "ritardando" - Gradually slowing in tempo; retarding.Other pertinent information:Tuning: Standard [EADGBe].Key signature:Effects: Chord Chart Below for major chordsTablature Format:This Tablature is based on the format indicated below.1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 <--Quarter note beat locations1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 <--Eighth note beat locations<--Effects/Misc LineD C G/B <--Chord Linee e e q q e e e e q e e e <--Note Duration Line (table below)|-----2-----------|-----------------| <--High E string|-------3---------|-----------------| <--B string|---2-------2---0-|-----0-------0---| <--G string|-0---------------|---2-------0---0-| <--D string|-----------------|-3-----2---------| <--A string|-----------------|-----------------| <--E string
Effects/Misc Line: Provides effects information, number of repeats, etc. Chord Line: Provides the chord name for the chords used in the tab below. Note Duration Line: Provides the "value" of each note, e.g., whole, half, quarter, etc. Note Duration Designator Table: w = Whole note h = Half note q = Quarter note H = Dotted half note Q = Dotted Quarter note s = Sixteenth note e = Eighth note S = Dotted sixteenth note E = Dotted eighth note + = Duration exceeds 2 measures t = Thirty-second note T = Dotted thirty-second note Notes with two designations immediately adjacent to each other have durations added (e.g., he = half note + eigth note, etc.) String lines: Represent the strings of a guitar. The tab is laid out as if you placed a right handed guitar on your lap, string side up. A vertical line character "|" represents a bar between measures. A dash "-" represents each string. The numbers indicate which fret should be fingered to sound the note. The first space after every bar is a blank space that is almost never used. Quarter notes are separated by 3 dashes, eighth notes are separated by 1 dash. In an effort to make the ASCII tab look as much like tab in a music book, the notes are spaced out as accurately as possible. In the event the notes will not fit into the format shown above, the tab will be expanded (usually only required for solos).
