    Rush/Lifeson tones (HYF, ASoH, Presto, RtB) with modern equipment?

    Alex Lifeson: Limelight tutorial iVideo

    Some cool tips and a tutorial that Alex discusses some gear and settings for this song. I've been researching and working on building a patch that replicates this song's tone using my Helix. The song specific tutorial starts around 17 minutes in and he goes through each section. There isn't as...

    Rush Live, Presto Tour '90

    I came upon this concert footage I'd never seen before. Not really a fan of the Signature guitars but I do love the Wal Bass. Enjoy
