Broons Bane Live by Rush

Bass tabs

From the album Exit...Stage Left (Mercury Records)
Copyright 1981 Core Music Publishing
Music by Lifeson

Transcribed by Erik Habbinga

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.
