Is it just me, or are the fills in Freewill really weird? The first two aren't too bad, but the last 3 seem like Geddy just slammed his face on the fretboard. They're also completely different on every tab I look at. Does anyone else think they're really weird?

Also, on the subject of this song, I love playing the solo... it's so much fun

I wouldn't call them weird, I'd call them unique. At one time I had most of them down.
They're easy to play with the left hand, it's right hand technique that's key. I read some where that Geddy strikes the strings twice with his fingers - like an up stroke and down stroke with a pick. I used to just three-finger style it.
