Moonchild by Iron Maiden
From the album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (1988)
Written by Adrian Smith and Bruce Dickinson

Tabbed by Jaakko Karppinen

This is a fairly simple bass line, but it requires very high stamina. The tab should be at least close
to 100% accurate, but the only thing I'm a bit uncertain of are those progressions in Verse 3 and 4 and the
Outro. Hope you like it, up the Irons!
