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 based 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".

I "suspect" Lifeson may be muting the D string in the 7th chord
with his ring finger...

Seckel's tab (Guitar for the Practicing Musician, April 1986) and Jimmy
Pena's (jimmy_pena@juno.com) tab with a number of changes.  Other
contributions were made by Sean Carroll (xamolleh@ix.netcom.com), Jim

half speed wav files and Rich Soto (hrhkinglerxst@home.com) 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.


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.
