[INTRO]

 Play the open C chord part by strumming evenly up and down
 through the chord rather than explicity picking the single
 notes.

[VERSES]

PLAY RHYTHM 1 (Both Guitars). Dave sticks fairly close to the
picking pattern but Adrian varies it sligthly. Dave's guitar has a
phaser on it and Adrians is chorused.
At the end of the verses in place of the Gsus4 chord of RHYTHM 1
slide up and down the bottom E string to cover up turning on the
distortion.

Good tab, but one thing: are those really full chords? Oo it sounds to me like simple powerchords.

The rhythm guitar during the solos is wrong. It goes like this (roughly):

e|------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------|
G|-9p7-9-----9-----10p9-7-----7-----7s5---7---5---4--2--|
D|-7---7-----7-----7----7-----7-----7s5---7---5---4--2--|
A|-------0-0---0-0--------0-0---0-0-----0-5---3---2--0--|
E|------------------------------------------------------|

It goes on and on like that. The open A string notes are palm muted. "s" stands for slide. The 7th fret on the D string rings out during the pull-offs on the G string.

This is based on listening to the album and watching live performances of Maiden.
