Run To The Hills by Iron Maiden
From the album The Number Of The Beast (1982)
Written by Steve Harris
All rights belong to their respective owners

Tabbed by Jaakko Karppinen

I have based this tab on the bass track and live performances you can find in Youtube, so it should be pretty
much 100% correct. Many people doubt it is actually Steve playing on the track, but I have been "studying"
his playing for so long that I'm certain that it is the original track played by him. When Steve plays
extremely fast lines, he picks very lightly with his fingernails instead of hitting hard against the frets.
This requires way less stamina but quite a lot of compression.
