Note: The guitar solos are not too hard to play but the first one is more 
      confused.  I didn't put them in this tab cause they were too long and
      too hard to write!!!  So, enjoy and try to find how to they play them!!!


If you want other Iron Maiden songs, just e-mail me and I will see what I can
do for you!!! Up the Irons!!!
