Cygnus X-1 As recorded by
=========== ==============
(In lotsa keys...) Rush
From the Album _A Farewell to Kings_
Music by Lee & Lifeson
Lyrics by Peart
Transcribed by Mr. White ([email protected])
***Note: I'm not sure if all this is 100% accurate. It will sound like the song because the chords are right and stuff--some of it is just my improvisation though. However, most of it is basically what Geddy plays. This is a damn tough song! I think a lot of bits of it are free-time, but I've tried to quantize everything into bars to make it a *little* bit easier to play. (Strangely enough, the beginning figure, where only Geddy is playing *is* in several set meters. He uses a rest of 6/4 between the first two bass bits and then 5/4, then 4/4, etc. Pretty cool!) In addition, some of the notes may not be absolutely solid--I don't know if it's the weirdness of the recording or just my ear that's messing me about. Enjoy:
Tab notes:
===========================================================================================
R = Rest / = slide up . = dotted note
/^3^ = Triplet (or other) grouping = slide down * = repeats
x = Muted note + = tie *
==#== = Extended Rest (#=no. of bars) ____________
1. | = different endings
===========================================================================================
Sound effects and spoken vocal for a little while.
Bass enters at about 1:25 (fade in over the first 23 bars)
*Bass only*
