Blind Guardian - The Bards Song tab

This is what I've tabbed so far of the guitar 2 part to The Bard's Song
(Studio Version).  From what I can tell, the 1st guitar part is the same as
the 'In the Forest' version, which can be found on other tabs on this
website.  The 2nd guitar part mainly follows the sung melody, and it is
relatively easy and very fun to play.  Please note than as of now, I have yet
to tab the last part of this song, and hopefully I will be able to get to it
in the near future. Also note that this is tabbed in standard tuning, where
as the 1st guitar part is tuned one half step down.
