Rush - Red Lenses
From the CD 'Grace Under Pressure'
Written by Lee/Lifeson/Peart
Mercury/Polygram Records 818476-2
This tab is a royal mess. It was a real pain to do, and I hope
you people appreciate it. This song isn't so popular, so why the hell did
I tab it? The key is E, switching to Ab for the keyboard interludes.
