Rush - In The End

        From the CD 'Fly By Night'
                Written by Lee/Lifeson/Peart
                Mercury/Polygram Records 822542-2

        This song opens with an acoustic 12 string playing in D, however
there is some sort of electronic detuning which makes it appear to be in C.
I will tab out the intro in C but be aware that it is played with the same
fingering as Riff 2. Also, Riff 1 is played in the same position as Riff 4,
but with the same electronic detuning. There is phaser almost throughout
this song, but I will try to notate specifically where it appears.
