BE QUICK OR BE DEAD - Iron Maiden           
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
From 1992's "Fear of the Dark" album
Written by Dickinson/Gers

Tabbed by: SethMegadefan
Email: rdlilly@hickorytech.net

Tuning: Standard EADGBE

I've got everything here except the solo. I'm no expert guitarist, and just playing the
rhythm stuff is hard enough. Enjoy what's here, though.

Go back and do the same thing for the next verse and chorus.
Then it goes to the guitar solo. Then it goes finally into
the last chorus. End the song with this chord:
e|--------|
B|--------|
G|--------|
D|--------|
A|-5------|
E|-3------|
