Rush: Under the Shadow
From the album Caress of Steel (Mercury Records)
Copyright 1975 Core Music Publishing
Music by Lee and Lifeson
Lyrics by Peart

Well, it's a start. The song begins in the key of G. Part III changes
to the key of E. Standard tuning, as always [EADGBe] (low to high). The
solos were hard to transcribe, but I did my best. As expected, they
aren't 100% complete and/or accurate. In fact, I've left the main solo
out just for you to figure out on your own!  Personally, 'Return
of the Prince' is one of the most beautiful pieces I've ever heard from
Rush. Try playing it and you'll see why.

| = 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
/ = slide up from infinity
\ = slide down into infinity
[5] = artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)
o  \_
o  /   repeat sign (always look for these!)

[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.


Rush - II Under the Shadow

Shreds of black cloud loom in overcast skies;
The Necromancer keeps watch with his magic prism eyes.
He views all his lands and is already aware -
Of the three helpless invaders trapped in his lair...

With [Riff 1] x4:

Brooding in the tower, watching o'er his lands.
Holding every creature, helplessly they stand.
Gaze into his prisms, knowing they are near.
Lead them to the dungeons.
Spectres numb with fear, they bow defeated.
