Dreamline: Tablature

By Joe T. Kung (jtkung@caf.mit.edu)

Excerpted from Fretplay.

Intro and verse:
(played with extreme compression and distortion, muted picking)

[repeat 5 times for verse]

sixth time (cut off intro lick):


Then the song jumps into the powerchords.

Powerchords (all no-3rds, see *)

G, F#, E,
G, F#, D (then some fills, see **)
F#, E, B,
C, D, E
G, F#, E
G, F#, D (again, see **)
F#, E, B
C, D, E

Then the into intro/verse sequence again, followed by power-chords.
After that the “cut off intro lick”.

The song then goes into the chorus (“We are young …”) section which doesn’t
sound like there’s any distinct guitar parts, but chords that would go well
are :

Asus2, Gmaj, Dmaj, and Cmaj, based on Geddy’s bass line. You can just
follow along with Geddy and do a muted rhythm with the guitar.

Then the intro/verse and powerchord part again. After this,
the solo begins:

whammy after
sounding drone
