Iron Maiden - Out Of The Silent Planet tab

Artist - Iron maiden

E -----------------------------------------5---

The verse is quite difficult to tab.
I think that one guitar strums 
these notes quickly 
while the others just play the chords.

Listen to the song to hear the 
guitar which does this. 
The sound level is quite 
low on it because the bass guitar 
drowns it out.

when this chorus is played the 
second time around (2 mins 
49 seconds into the song), it goes like this-

I don't think this bit is palm muted. 
One guitar keeps playing this 
under the mimic lines

Below is the fill played over the the top of the 
chorus riff above. Listen for the timing.

I suggest that now you 
go up to the bottom end 
of the guitar, because 
it makes the bends easier in my opinion.
