Blind Guardian – A Past & Future Secret tab


         This is "A Past and Future Secret" by Blind Guardian

         I took this from a performance at VIVA Metalla but it's pretty
         much like the album version.
         I think that he tune's 1/2 step down but I'm not sure.
         Always rythm guitar on top and lead guitar on bottom.
         Trancribed by Jo?o Pedro Magalh?es

         Note: Capoeded at 3rd fret

         I'll just put all riffs first and then explain the music.
