"Vital Signs"
Music: Lee/Lifeson
Lyrics: Peart
off of Moving Pictures
tabbed by: J-Punk (kalwin@seidata.com)


Notes:
 This is kind of 2 guitars for 1.  Guitar 1 (the top 3 strings) is
 clean with chorusing. Guitar 2 (the bottom 3 strings) is distorted.
 I supplied the counting (this one's tricky).

INTRO

     1 2 3 4    1(2)+ + +   1 2 (3,4)

complete tab, but it's better than nothing. As always, send
