Number Of The Beast Tab

   
THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST - IRON MAIDEN
 
[the intro is written in 5/4 measure (5 ticks in 1 measure)]
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/i/iron_maiden/number_of_the_beast_tab_ver_3.html ]
Having just watched the DVD about how Number of the Beast was made.. AND
the bit where Adrian Smith plays it - I realised all the existing tab misses
some important bits - especially in the verse. In the DVD its hard to see
the exact finger positions and Im sure this isnt 100% accurate, but maybe
someone can pick it up and better it!!

...and so on.

The verse is normally just shown as C and D power chords
however there is a mini-riff on the change to C. This
is my best guess at it - again from watching Adrian Smith
