Bruce Dickinson - Kill Devil Hill tab

Kill devil hill by Bruce Dickinson from the tyranny of souls album.
Tabbed by A Scott
Beginner level song

I can't believe how little people are tabbing his stuff!
Tyranny of souls is probably my favourite album ever so I thought I'd add this.
I did this largely from memory so excuse any rubbishness.
Its not that difficult to play, as there is no solo section.
I assume you know the structure of it. Have fun with it, its pretty cool to play.

Dropped D tuning

The 'gallop'feel of this riff can be hard to nail if your a beginner.
Alternate pick the first 4 succession of open notes (D).
The end of each riff is doubled up by two guitars. Guitar two plays a version
of the riff but on lower notes. It is tabbed above. Feel free to insert your own
pull offs into that section, as your playing style may be different from how I have transcribed it.

Similar feel with the prechorus. Repeated twice then it goes into this.

Fairly easy chord part. Anyone who plays maiden songs will be familiar
with this sort of idea! Theres a overlaying guitar
part but its very hard to make out what Roy plays.

Spanish guitar sounding bit from piano outro. Add vibrato as you see fit.
