Rush: Something for Nothing
From the album 2112 (Mercury Records)
Copyright 1976 Core Music Publishing
Music by Lee and Lifeson
Lyrics by Peart

This song is in C. The solo is incomplete. The tab, I mean. Lots
of help from Pete Beshuk  and Rich Soto
. I still hear some extra 12-string notes in
the intro, but if I start trying to figure them out, I'll never finish
this tab.

| = not a standard bar line; just used to separate music
~ = vibrato or held note
h = hammer on
p = pull off
s = slide
b = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret
r = release bend to indicated string/fret
tr = trill; play the note(s) indicated rapidly and repeatedly (same thing
	as tremolo picking)
/ = slide up from infinity
\ = slide down into infinity
<5> = natural harmonic (lightly touch the string at fret indicated)
[x35553] = fret box; this is a C chord - this is the same as standard
  tablature, only turned on its side. Tilt your head clockwise to read.
