Tokyo Blade - Warrior Of The Rising Sun tab

(Guitar Tab for “Warrior of the Rising sun”)
(From “Night of the Blade” 1984)
(Recorded By Tokyo Blade)
Revised Version: I changed up some of the riffs so that they were right
I noticed quickly that some riffs were not right or whatever so here’s a
Revised version of the song sorry for the mistakes on the first version
However take not I hardly adjusted the solo so there are some mistakes
Still there. Other than that enjoy the REAL version of it… or close enough

Notes: I decided to tab this amazing song by a great band from the NWOHBM
which is quite underrated in my mind. It seems very accurate to me and it
took a few hours to make but finally it is done. I noticed there was only 1
tabs for this band (Midnight Rendezvous) so I decided to make one and I plan on doing
“Night of the Blade” as well.
I’m not sure that the solo is quite right or
even has enough notes so if anyone has a tab for it that is correct then
please place it in the comment section as I do not have a working email address right now.
If you find any other mistakes please take note to them but I believe
that it’s very accurate. Please take not that most palm muted notes are only partially
palm muted throughout the song.

Note: This part can be played two ways as shown here or as shown at the end of the tab either way it sounds right but this is more likely the right setup. It has some sort of affect i believe but i can't place what it is.

Lyrics (Lyrics from Dark lyrics.com) Samurai! In a long time ago, when the sword was your soul And the sun turned to gold, and the day turned to night A man stands alone, knowing he has the right And the power of life, over all he surveys With his sword in his hand, he rules all the land Even fools understand, he lives just to fight A man rich in pride, no one dares to defy Don't stare in his eyes, 'cos he's the samurai He bows his head and cries 'By The Sword I Will Live To Die' His eyes are ablaze when he screams out his name He lifts his sword to the rising sun The sun hits the steel as he's shielding his eyes He rules with the blade, will it drive him insane? Death in life is his only way Blood stains the land as they heed his commands He'll fight to the death, when he makes his last stand The time will come when they claim his crown He'll be cut down 'cos he's only a man But until that day, he will rule all this land Samurai! Samurai! Samurai! Samurai! By the sword, You live to die... [Solo] You first killed so long ago The way the warrior learns to fight Can you feel your life's blood draining away? Has the power to foresee Knows the future, what's been before Can't you see he's getting stronger? Sa-mur-ai! Samurai!
