Rush bass tabs for The body electric

Bass tabs with lyrics

This tab had 4 measures missing from the 2nd verse, starting at 1:49
in the song. I transcribed that little part and filled in the missing
stuff. (And by-the-way, you can *really* hear the bass clearer on
the remastered GUP! I'm buying all of them, I think the sound improvement
is fantastic.)
