The Wicker Man by Iron Maiden
From the album Brave New World (2000)
Written by Adrian Smith, Steve Harris and Bruce Dickinson
All rights belong to their respective owners

Tabbed by Jaakko Karppinen

I have based this tab on the bass track you can find in Youtube, so it should be quite close to
100% correct. But because the whole Brave New World album was recorded live in studio, there are
some mistakes and little variations, that I have deliberately left unmarked, just to keep the tab
clear and easy to read. Please enjoy!
