Rush bass tabs for Broons bane

Bass tabs with lyrics

Here is my arrangement of Rush's Alex Lifeson's classical guitar solo
Broon's Bane for 5 string bass, two handed tapping style. This actually
works, believe it or not. However, it is very difficult to convey
specific fingerings with tab, so I leave those as an exercise to the
reader. However, I have placed a '+' underneath all the notes I play
with the right hand. With some of the four note chords, it is hard to
tell which hand is playing what. Most of the time, the fingerings
become evident later on in the same measure. If anyone really wants to
know how I finger a certain part, feel free to ask. I must express my
gratitude to Mario D'Alessio and the code for the Bass Tab Creator,
which I modified for five-string bass and my own personal tastes in
input files. Here's the tab!
