IRON MAIDEN

Murderers in the Rue Morgue -as recorded in Killers
Written by Steve Harris

I'm not sharp at writing tab's so you need to listen the song to catch the 
rythm.

The song starts with an arpeggio kinda low to hear, it goes some like this:
Clear guitar

That's it, I got kinda sloppy in the interludes; I think that both interludes
are played with 2 guitars. And for the solos, I'm still learning to play
guitar so don't expect them.
