                             THE GARDEN - Rush

Track 12, and personally, my favorite song off of Rush's 20th studio album. I
tried to pick up this song when I was lucky enough to get my hands on Clockwork
Angels four days early (but of course, too lazy to tab it a tab until now). So,
here it is, part by part, with some notes and the order of the song parts; I
hope it's accurate enough. Have fun!

Song Order:

-Verse

Chorus
Part 1, Part 1, Part 2)

Verse
Strum an F chord before the verse starts, during the bass riff. You'll
hear when.)

Chorus
Part 1, Part 2, Part 1, Part 2)
-Bridge
-Solo

Chorus
Part 1, Part 2, Part 1, then Part 2 six times)
-End by fading out on low G (3rd fret on the low E string)

Acoustic-
    Part 1:
     G    A#   C    D#
e|---3----1----0----1---|
B|---3----3----1----4---|
G|---4----3----0----3---|
D|---5----3----2----1---|
A|---5----1----3----x---|
E|---3----x----x----x---|

    Part 2:
     Gm   A#   D#   D    C   F
e|---3----1----1----x----0---1~~---|
B|---3----3----4----3----1---1~~---|
G|---3----3----3----2----0---2~~---|
D|---5----3----1----0----2---3~~---|
A|---5----1----x----x----3---3~~---|
E|---3----x----x----x----x---1~~---|

The F at the end is only strummed once, at the end of the chorus. Also, the
chords are played over the electric guitar, learning the note values isn't
hard, just listen to the song. Also, I'm kind of unsure that this part is 100%
accurate. It sounds right to me, so I just play it like this.

Bridge
Electric, clean):

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------6-------6-------6-------6-------5-------5-------5-------5----|
G|----5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5--|
D|--3-------3-------3-------3-------3-------3-------3-------3--------| x8
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

And now for the solo... (Electric, some distortion):

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------10-11p10-13~~~~--11h13p11-|
G|----------------------------------------------10---------------------------|
D|---3~~~-----------------------------------/10------------------------------|

Whew. That's a cool solo, not too hard. Gotta love Mr. Lifeson.

Thanks for reading! Once again, I hope it's accurate enough. Constructive
criticism is appreciated. :D
