Iron Maiden - Rime of the Ancient Mariner   - transcribed by Gary Chapman
=========================================

tablature Copyright (c)1994 Gary Chapman

In my usual fashion, I got inspired by someone's posting (in this case,
Andrew Kenter's), belted out half of the song in one go, and then lost 
interest.  If I have the time and energy I'll finish the song in the
not-too-distant future.

Here's everything up to and including the slow section with the poem.
Taken from Live After Death.
