NOTE 2:
Musical notes indicated by "x" below are either executed by "strumming"
with the edge of the picking hand (pinkie side) (per Rich Soto) or
muting the strings with the fretting hand and strumming as indicated
with the pick (per C. D. Bruce).


Lyrics:
None


Tablature Contributors:
This transcription was created by C. D. Bruce (cbruce@peco-energy.com)
in "his" format (described below).  It was based primarily on Peter
Seckel's tab (Guitar for the Practicing Musician, April 1986) and Jimmy
Pena's (jimmy@walrus.com) tab with some changes.  Other contributions
were made by Jim Cirronella (TwoZbar@AOL.COM), Sean Jones
(seanj@EXECPC.COM) and Sean Carroll (xamolleh@ix.netcom.com) and Rich
Soto (lerxst@zeus.jersey.net).  Special thanks goes to Tony Kennedy
(tonyk@infonxx.com) for the 1/2 speed wav files and Rich Soto for
various video footage.


Disclaimer:
This tablature represents how the song is played as closely as reasonably
achievable to the studio recording.  Alex Lifeson may have played it
slightly differently.


The Origin of the title "YYZ"?
YYZ is the airport code for Toronto Canada.  If you ever travel to
Toronto, you'll notice the "YYZ" on your baggage ticket.  The intro
to this song on the crotale is bassed on the letters Y Y Z in Morse
code.  In Morse code, the letter Y is "-.--" (dash dot dash dash)
and the letter Z is "--.." (dash dash dot dot).  Thus, YYZ becomes:
"-.---.----.." or
"dash dot dash dash dash dot dash dash dash dash dot dot".


Tablature Explanation:
NT= Nashville Tuning is when the low E, A, D and G strings are replaced
    with lighter gauge strings and tuned one octave higher than normal.
| = bar separating measures
~ = vibrato
x = percussive note with no pitch; muted note
. = staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it
h = hammer
p = pull
s = slide (used when \ or / don't fit)
^ = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret shown in parenthesis ()
r = release bend (string/fret may be indicated)
t = fret board tap (not many of these with Rush)
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
x/= pick slide up
x\= pick slide down
<5> = natural harmonic (lightly touch the string at fret indicated)
[5] = artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)
(5) = note sustained from previous measure
o =\ repeat sign
o =/
D.C. = "Da capo" - means "from the head", when you see these initials
       you go back to the beginning of the piece of music.
D.S. = "Dal segno" - means "from the sign", go back in the tabulature
       only as far as the (%) sign.
Coda = A passage at the end of a movement or composition that brings
       it to a formal close.
Al Coda = means "to the tail", tells you that you must go to the end
          section which starts with the Coda sign (+).
R.F. = repeat and fade
rit. = "ritardando" - Gradually slowing in tempo; retarding.

Other pertinent information:
  Tempo:  1/4 note = varies
  Tuning:  Standard [EADGBe].
  Key signature:
  Effects:  Overdrive, Chorus, Ambient delay and reverb

Other Pertinent information per Jim Cironella:
1. Phrygian is a Minor scale with a lowered second degree.  (In the case of
   B Phrygian, a C natural.)

2. Spanish Phrygian is a Phrygian scale with a raised third degree.  (In the
   case of B Spanish Phrygian, a D#.)

3. The YYZ solo gets it's signature sound from Lifeson's emphasis on the C
   natural to D# interval.

Effects/Misc Line:  Provides effects information, number of repeats, etc.

Chord Line:  Provides the chord name for the chords used in the
             tab below.

Note Duration Line:  Provides the "value" of each note, e.g., whole,
                     half, quarter, etc.

Note Duration Designator Table:
  w = Whole note                   h = Half note
  q = Quarter note                 H = Dotted half note
  Q = Dotted Quarter note          s = Sixteenth note
  e = Eighth note                  S = Dotted sixteenth note
  E = Dotted eighth note           + = Duration exceeds 2 measures
  t = Thirty-second note
  T = Dotted thirty-second note

  Notes with two designations immediately adjacent to each other
  have durations added (e.g., he = half note + eigth note, etc.)

String lines:  Represent the strings of a guitar.  The tab is laid
               out as if you placed a right handed guitar on your
               lap, string side up.  A vertical line character "|"
               represents a bar between measures.  A dash "-" represents
               each string.  The numbers indicate which fret should
               be fingered to sound the note.  The first space after
               every bar is a blank space that is almost never used.
               Quarter notes are separated by 3 dashes, eighth notes
               are separated by 1 dash.  In an effort to make the
               ASCII tab look as much like tab in a music book, the
               notes are spaced out as accurately as possible.  In the
               event the notes will not fit into the format shown above,
               the tab will be expanded (usually only required for
               solos).
