                                  "King in Crimson"
                               (B. Dickinson, Roy Z.)

              Guitar transcription by Aaron Shay (zerosig8@apk.net)


Ok...First of all,to play this song correctly you need
at least one of two things :

        a.) A guitar fit with bass strings and tuned
            to drop A.

        or

        b.) A guitar in normal tuning with a Digitech
            Whammy Pedal. (Or other unit that drops the
            pitch one octave)

        Since the chances are better (yet still slim)
that some of you may have the second, I will tab it for
normal guitar tuning.

This is all the riffs minus the solos. I might put the solos on a
separate tab, but that is a lot of numbers.
