Song:   Wrathchild
Album:  Killers
Writer:         Steve Harris
Artist: Iron Maiden
Year:   1981
Guitar: Rhythm

This is not the original way to play it but it is written in the key of D which is the highest
key on a normal E|B|G|D|A|E| guitar however you can change the tuning to Drop D and play 
lower. I got the idea after watching a guitar lesson with Adrian Smith
