Verse


The verse has the same chords that the part above, but they're
played with distortion. Hear very carefully the song so you can catch
the rhythm.


Solo:

(The easy part)

E|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|-7--7-7-9-10-9~-10-9-7--7--------------------|
D|--------------------------10-8--8-7-5-7^-7~--|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|-7--7-7-9-10-9~-10-9-7--7----------5-7~------|
D|--------------------------10-8-7-5-----------|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|---------------8---------------8-------------------------------------------
G|---7~---7-9-10---10-9---7-9-10---10-9--7-----------------------------------
D|-7----7---------------7------------------10-7-7^-7~------------------------
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|---------------8---------------8--------------10^-10~----------------------
G|---7~---7-9-10---10-9---7-9-10---10-9--7-----------------------------------
D|-7----7---------------7------------------10-7------------------------------
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------


{Solo-Really-Fast-Difficult-To-Catch}

Solo:

(Again, an easy part)

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|-------10-6-8~-------10-6-8-6----------------------------------------------
G|-7-7-7---------7-7-7----------------10-7-9~-------10-7-9-5--------7-3-5----
D|------------------------------8-8-8---------8-8-8-----------5-5-5----------
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|-------10-7-9-------7----7-5---5-7---7-5---5-------------------------------
D|-7-7-7--------10-7--7--7-----7-----7-----7---------------------------------
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then, comes the Chorus again, the last verse, and the outro,
that is similar to the Intro, so you can get it easy.


If you have an idea about the Really-Fast-Solo, or if you
want to talk about another Iron Maiden's Tab, feel free to drop me
some lines about it.
