                             Book Of Thel - Bruce Dickinson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maidenbridge666

Tuning: DADGBE


Im tabbing this out how i usually play it. 
All the other tabs on this site are wrong imo. 
When i play this along to the album it sounds pretty much dead on but any comments 
and corrections would be welcome. 

Awesome Song btw!! UP THE BRUCE!!

(Sorry if its a bit cramped. This is my only my 2nd tab so i'm not used to tabbing stuff out yet)


Guitar 1 - Roy Z (Electric Guitar with Distortion)
