                (Live1)
This is my first tab. Maybe not the easiest one but anyways ;p

Here you've got the most common Live version of Fear of the Dark by Iron Maiden.
It's best to listen to the song to get the rhythms.
This is what I hear is correct.
Any corrections/recommendations? please tell me through the comment section.
I'm sorry about that im not tabbing the solo but look at a normal version (not
live) i know some have the solos ;)


s = Slide
h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
(#) = last note still rings
