Make sure to continue reading towards the end for information about the Rhythm Version!
 
This is an live, acoustic version Rush's "Resist", from their R30 30th Anniversary World Tour. Featuring only Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, this song was performed during both the Vapor Trails [more commonly Rush in Rio] and R30 tours, following after Peart's Drum Solo. This song is a drastic change from Rush's usual adherence to performing live songs very similar to their Studio Recordings, which I believe helps to bring out the magic in a different and special way. This song has always had a place in my heart as 'Rush in Rio' was the first Live Tour that I saw from Rush.

Notes on Rhythm Version:
Lee is accompanying Lifeson with an acoustic guitar as opposed to his usual bass guitar. Thus the main release version does NOT have a bass part, and just Guitar & Vocals. However, I've authored a Rhythm Version as well which puts the Rhythm Guitar on Bass. If you are interested in this version (which the Preview Video will contain), make sure to download the correct version (or both to be sure)!

I'm curious, what made you pick R30 performance, and not say, the Rush in Rio or some of the bootlegs from that era. I'm so glad you charted this btw, the live stripped down acoustic version is so much better then the studio version. Your work is amazing!

After finishing Der Trommler, it just felt right to include the song following it during the setlist. I release a song from a three person band with just the drummer, so I though it'd be cool to follow it up with just the Guitarist and Bassist as well. Big plus for this reason was honestly that I already had the crowd audio to mix in from Trommler's... but also because the reference video to help chart was much more clear and focused on the hands. I'm terrible at charting acoustic, so I needed all the help I could get ha
