 than nothing.  If you have corrections, please post them
 in a nice civilized manner.  No flames, they're a waste.)

(The rest of the song is taken from the parts that come
 after the slow part of the chorus.  They are easy to figure
 out, mostly A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramA augmentedA and A chord diagramBB chords, and I am too tired to
 type them in)


I got the TAB for "Time Stand Still" off the ftp site and noticed that
the intro was heinously incorrect. I realize the person who wrote it
said it wasn't 100% correct, and I am posting the correction in a
civilized manner :) I'll post more Rush TAB if there are enough people
interested. There's a pretty good-size collection going at the site,
and most of it's correct that I've seen, and I want to add to it as
much as I can. Alex Lifeson is my favorite guitarist, and I know how to
play most of Rush's tunes.
