How To Play Limelight Correctly (as taught by Alex himself)

Post by lll »

So many Rush tabs have been wrong over the decades...

But this is the real deal because it's Alex himself showing it... and you'll hear it, too.

I'll add more tunes later.

I always dig this because there are so many god-awful tabs out there and a shitload of these fuckers on youtube will perpetuate this by playing shit wrong and it just goes on and on.

Yep.

I have a stack of "note-for-note" tablature books on the shelf next to me for Extreme, Van Halen, Joe Satriani, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin...

and they're full of wrong transcriptions. :x

It's so bizarre, some of them will be NOTHING in the realm of close to what should be played - that ...And Justice For All book is one of the worst I've ever seen - and then amidst all of the garbage there'll be something right you never see anywhere else, like in this old Black Sabbath one where they're the only ones to correctly show this E7 9 in part of A National Acrobat - it just makes you shake your head...
