The Legacy by Iron Maiden (Gers and Harris)

Amazing song. Hear it very well before you play it.

Wanted to play this on my acoustic. BUT MY FRETS DON'T GO THAT HIGH! Damn. Guess I'll use the Ol' SG till i can afford a better acoustic. PS good tab.

I've only learned the acoustic part so far but it's a good tab. Just thought I'd point out that at least the acoustic parts sound better in drop d (didn't think it said that). And also instead of the chord listed as the 2nd riff alternate ending, I think this sounds better:
