I paid for the previous Rush songbook, but that's it.

Someone'll tab S&A soon for free.

How accurate it is will be anybody's guess though. :P

Drum tabs are odd looking beasties for sure. Just the different notes, then you have to figure out the rhytum of the thing. I have never looked at guitar tab, is it similar?


The A Work in Progress DVD has the drum parts fully written for key passages, and yeah kind of overwelming. I am better at lifting parts by ear than reading the music, but it is nice to look it over to make sure I got the song right.

Guitar tabs are mostly for folks not formally trained - such as myself.

Some call 'em fake books. Some really ARE. LOL

(Must of the free tabs are posted by college kids with too much
time on their hands. Some of those are WOEFUL.)

It's formatted on 6-string lines just like sheet music, except
tabs have fret positions marked numerically on the string line(s).

Some even have secondary numbering to show which fretting
fingers to use. They use symbols for bends, hammer-ons and
pull-offs ect. - just like classical sheet music.

"Guitar for Dummies" if you will - but that's already in print too. :roll:

The Rush book I got from Guitar Center is pretty accurate, but
not exact. It's tabbed out by pros, but they miss a few notes too.
I just play around until I find the correct note(s) or expressions.

after a while, you learn just like you were taking lessons. You
start to learn scales - not even realizing it.

I'm studying Thin Lizzy's "twin lead" method that Priest and countless
others have picked up on over the years. In TAB.

In all, I'm learning 10 different 2-note chorus scales for the A major
ALONE.
Lizzy used 'em like crazy. "The Boys are Back in Town" is a classic example.
