Rush tabs

I Think I'm Going Bald guitar tab

Rush: I Think I'm Going Bald
From the album Caress of Steel (Mercury Records)
Copyright 1975 Core Music Publishing
Music by Lee and Lifeson
Lyrics by Peart

This is a great song in the key of A. The solos I tabbed are a bit
simplified, but they should give you an idea of what's going on.
Special thanks to Ross Stites  for giving me a big
head start on tabbing this one out. Rock on!

I changed Riff 2 to powerchords, also check Riff 1 and see if it's
right. I changed a little bit of it.

| = not a standard bar line; just used to separate music
~ = vibrato or held note
h = hammer on
p = pull off
s = slide
b = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret
r = release bend to indicated string/fret
/ = slide up from infinity
\ = slide down into infinity

[Riff 1] x2 /w lyrics:

        I looked in the mirror today; my eyes just didn't seem so bright.

[Riff 2] x1 /w lyrics:

        I've lost a few more hairs. I think I'm, I'm going bald.

[Riff 1] x4 /w lyrics:

        I think I'm going bald.
   Seems like only yesterday we would sit and talk of dreams all night.

[Riff 2] x1 /w lyrics:

      Dreams of youth, and simple truths. Now we're all so involved,

[Riff 1] x2 /w lyrics:

        so involved with life.

[Riff 3] x2 /w lyrics:

        I walk down vanity fair, memory lane everywhere.
        Wall Street shuffles there, dressed in flowing hair.

[Riff 1] x2 /w lyrics:

        Once we loved the flowers, now we ask the price of the land.

[Riff 2] x2 /w lyrics:

        Once we would take water, but now it must be wine.
        Now we've been and now we've seen, what price peace of mind?

[Riff 1] x2 /w lyrics:

        Take a piece of my mind!

[Riff 3] x2 /w lyrics:

        My life is slipping away. I'm aging every day.
        But even when I am grey, I'll still be grey my way.
