The Number Of The Beast -solo guitar tab

Subject: TAB ("Number Of The Beast SOLO" by Iron Maiden)
Transcribed by Alexander Ciullo.( IronAlex@juno.com )
From the Album A Real Dead One



Note:

Since most of you probably know the original here is the live one. Dave
plays his a bit different and Janick scraps Adrians completley putting a
whole new twist on it.

                  *Note sp= speed picking, best done bu bringing pick
close to fret board
                                      and picking rapidly in a 16 note
rythm pattern

      At the conclusion of Dave's solo a short break appears for 8 bars
and then Janick takes it away for the final solo.

    Key:
                  p=pull off  
                  h=hammer on
                  b=bend
                  r=realease
                  Vibe=vibrato
                  /=slide up
                  \=slide down

                                                         Well Boys and
Girls there it is. Hope you all have fun learning it and playing it.
Remember, for you begginers take it easy. Look at everything one lick at
a time. All solos are not just one giant mess. They are individual ideas
and feelings expressed in pieces. Learn all the licks first and then
connect them. I Know all of you can do it so take it slow and don't
stress over it. As for you Lead Vets- Here's another piece for you to
sink your fretboard into. Listen closley to the album to hear the certain
feed back, pinch, Nat Harmonics that are going on.  Any comments,
questions, or requests keep them coming. And remeber.....Eddie loves you.
