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.

| - 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

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!)
