C G C F
             Savatage
   - Hall Of The Mountain King -
   Hall Of The Mountain King (1987)


Tempo: 128 BPM (approx.)
Tuning: Drop C (C G C F)


-----
Info:
-----
Please note that the bass doesn't copy the guitar.
Specially in the "Bridge B" part you can hear, that it is not played like the guitar.

And yes, the song is tuned in Drop C. If you don't believe this, check out "www.crissoliva.net".
Look under "about Criss" and then "Gear", scroll down to the bottom and then you will see the truth.

I read your comment and wondered so I just played the song again with the tuning and I can tell you... it is RIGHT. I made this tab before the Power tab version was uploaded. You should use your damn ears or sell your gear.

Why should I Google for "Grieg"? Remember, this is the Savatage version which is a completely other song and shares only the name "Hall Of the Mountain King". Savatage covered the Grieg version which is called "Prelude To Madness" on the same album.

I gave you a minus for your stupid post.

I can't believe this one got only 1 star. Whoever gave it 1 star was stoned. It's a pretty accurate tab, good work.

This is actually the most accurate tab of this song you can find on the internet :).Thanks for the post.Five golden stars to PelzR, Minus to Ivbassman, You should be ashamed of the bass part of your name :)
