MARATHON
from 'Power Windows'
transcribed by [email protected] [Derek Linklater]
Note: I did not transcribe the solo for Marathon, I'll leave that
to you die-hard rush fans. Please feel free to mail any comments
to me regarding this transcription... especially if one of you
enterprising Lifeson fans wants to transcribe the solo correctly. :)
The 'Alex Lifeson' Sound: I have managed to re-create (sort of) the sound
that Alex uses on Marathon. Use a ballsey heavy
distortion, chorus (using a triangle wave-form if
you can), and either a bit of delay or reverb to
get that 'studio' sound.
Lyrics not reprinted with permission... sorry guys. :(

Transcription Notes:
'v' indicates shallow tremelo action... basically vibrato.
'|' indicates a certain section of music... not a traditional musical
measure
