Between The Wheels by Rush

Tabs

Rush - Between the Wheels

    From the CD 'Grace Under Pressure'
        Written by Lee/Lifeson/Peart
        Mercury/Polygram Records 818476-2

    This song is in 'dropped-D' tuning [DADGBe] low to high. It is in
the key of C. Mostly 4/4 time. This song sounds like it has some chorus
or flange in the intro (guitar).
