Hello readers,
Rush - Fly By Night
        This tab is my meager attempt at tabbing Fly By Night. Some parts
were old, some parts were new. The solo is not complete. Everything I
have figured out is below. As for the rest, you are on your own. The key
is D.
Jimmy Pena - jimmy@walrus.com
| - not a standard bar line; just used to separate music
~ - vibrato or held note
x - percussive note with no pitch; muted note
. - staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it
h - hammer on
p - pull off
s - slide
t - trill; play the note(s) indicated rapidly and repeatedly
/ - slide up from infinity
 - slide down into infinity
 - natural harmonic (or pinch harmonic)
3(b5) - bend note up from 3rd to 5th fret pitch
3(b5r3) - bend note from 3rd to 5th fret pitch, then return to 3rd fret
o  _
o  /   repeat sign (always look for these!)
[x35553] - fret box; this is a C chord - this is the same as standard
  tablature, only turned on its side. Tilt your head clockwise to read.

Song Progression:
[Riff 1] x3
[Riff 1] x2 /w lyrics:
Why try? I know why.
This feeling inside me says it's time I was gone.
Clear head, new life ahead.
It's time I was king now, not just one more pawn.
[Riff 2] x1 /w lyrics:
Fly by night away from here, change my life again.
[First half of Riff 2, then last half of Riff 1] x1 /w lyrics:
Fly by night, goodbye my dear.
My ship isn't coming and I just can't pretend.
[Riff 1] x1
[Riff 1] x2 /w lyrics
Moon rise, thoughtful eyes.
Staring back at me from the window beside.
No fright, or hindsight.
Leaving behind that empty feeling inside.
[Riff 2] x1 /w lyrics:
Fly by night away from here, change my life again.
[First half of Riff 2, then last half of Riff 1] x1 /w lyrics:
Fly by night, goodbye my dear.
My ship isn't coming and I just can't pretend. Woah!
