Rush: Kid Gloves
From the album Grace Under Pressure (Mercury Records)
Copyright 1984 Core Music Publishing
Music by Lee and Lifeson
Lyrics by Peart

This tab was originally transcribed by Patrick M. Ryan
, and re-done correctly by Thom Hickey
, but goes over 80 colums. Since it's basically
been done already, my version is just the only one that is both right and
properly formatted. It doesn't add anything else. The verses are in the
key of D, the chorus and solo are in E.

s = slide
b = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret
r = release bend to indicated string/fret

Song progression:

[Intro] x1 w/o bass/drums
[Intro] x4 w/ band (slight echo effect only)

With [Intro]:

A world of difference, a world so out of touch.
Overwhelmed by everything, but wanting more so much.

 G                 Bm
Call it blind frustration,
  A5                     [Fill 1] x1
Call it blind man's bluff.

 G		 Bm		    A5 A5  A5 A5  A5 A5    A5 A5
Call each other names, your voices rude, your voices rough.

[arpeggate each chord here:]
  G		     Bm 	     A5 	     A5 A5  A5 A5 [etc]
Then you learn the lesson that it's cool to be so tough.

[Riff 1] x1

With [Chorus] riff 4 times: (don't play ending the 4th time)

Handle with kid gloves, handle with kid gloves.
Then you learn the lessons taught in school won't be enough.
Put on your kid gloves, put on your kid gloves.
Then you learn the lesson that it's cool to be so tough.

[Intro] w/ reduced echo

With [Intro]:

A world of indifference, heads and hearts too full.
Careless of the consequence of constant push and pull.

 G               Bm
Anger got bare knuckles,
  A5              [Fill 1] x1
Anger play the fool

 G	       Bm		 A5 A5	A5 A5  A5 A5	A5 A5
Anger wear a crown of thorns, reverse the golden rule.

[arpeggate each chord here:]
  G		     Bm 	     A5 	     A5 A5  A5 A5 [etc]
Then you learn the lesson that it's tough to be so cool.

[Riff 1] x1

With [Chorus] riff 4 times:

Handle with kid gloves, handle with kid gloves.
Then you learn the weapons and the ways of hard knock school.
Put on your kid gloves, put on your kid gloves.
Then you learn the lesson that it's tough to be so cool.
