This is the most complete tab at the moment. Very good job with detailed drums and bass parts (good for using as BTrack). Includes Adrian's backing vocals and all. But there are 2 problems i can notice:

-The vocals have a few wrong notes (on both main and backing, but not a big deal since singing is not the aim here)

-The second and real ISSUE is the SOLO: Both the notes AND the technique used on the 2 "main" licks of the solo is wrong. The way it is tabed makes it more difficult to play and less good sounding/interesting than it was suposed to be. (the tab indicates picking on both licks, but they are actually a pattern of a few picked notes between legato notes with open strings. It has a very distinct picking pattern with an insteresting sounding accent wich is actually one of Adrian Smith's "Signature Licks" wich he uses in many other solo pieces, but unfortunately most of us get it wrong when trying to hear it, belive me or not this lick is more easily understandable if you see it instead.

I hope this is helpful since this is one of Maiden's most beatiful and famous guitar solos!

Sorry i did not have much time later. Nope, your version is not far from the original! I will send you what i believe are the right notes when i have time. Then you can check it to see if you agree and make the corrections! Yes, man awesome job on the drums! i was very happy when i heard it :D Cheers

I have the official tab book for the album. I'm afraid that 20-19-20-17-0-17 lick is actually correct. It's a little bit challenging, it just takes a bit of practice. Adrian Smith is quite a technical guitar player and very under-estimated.
