Iron Maiden tabs

Paschendale guitar tab

From: John Alkire 
Artist:	Iron Maiden
Album:	Dance of Death
Song:	Paschendale


Standard Tuning

Ok you Maiden fans, this is probably the best song on the album. I have
only tabbed parts of the song so feel free to fill in the blanks. I will 
talk you through each section to help you along.


Intro Part I.: This beginning is done using triplets. It sounds like
               an organ, but I will give the boys the benefit of the guitar. 
               Listen to the song for timing and tempo.
