/ Iron Maiden / Dance of Death (2003) / Dance of Death guitar tab

Song: "Dance of Death"
Artist: Iron Maiden
Album: Dance of Death
Tabbed By: John Alkire
Email: johnalkire@earthlink.net
 
Standard Tuning
 

I have tabbed this by ear so there may be a few mistakes. 
I left out the solos and will leave them up to you experts
out there. Also, others have tabbed this song and I am confident
that theirs are wrong. So, try this on for size! Remember, listen 
to the CD for timing and tempo! Enjoy!

SOLO I. This is played while the chord progression above continues.
        Same solo played to close out the song but has some echo effects.

INTRO:(Cont.) This will be played through four times and then tempo will
              pick up using the same chord progression.

INTRO(Cont.): Now the guitars begin to use "quick" strums of each chord
              and Bruce sings "Feeling scared as fell to my knees, something 
              rushed me from the trees." Do this progression three times, 
              listen to CD for timing and tempo.

INTRO:(Cont.) This is the ending of the intro progression and it starts with
             "Into the middle I was led", and continues with "As if time has 
              stopped still I was numb with fear." Plays through five times,
              listen to CD!

Main Theme Melody: Now for the fun part. This next sequence is the fast
                   melody that is backed with a violin sound. Not sure if 
                   mine is accurate, but I took a stab at it. Here you go! 
                   It is the same throughout the song so I only tabbed it 
                   once. Again, listen to the CD and make sure your fingers 
                   are warmed up!

Solos: For the experts only! But, same chorus line above through all solos!


Interlude Part I.   After the first two solos comes the "chant Melodies." I 
                    Knick-named them this because in concert the Europeans 
                    will chant each note.

Interlude Part II. This is the same idea played after the third solo, 
                   just played at a different key. Play this with the CD, 
                   you'll know what I mean!

ENJOY IT!!!! 

..AND THE LYRICS:

Let me tell you a story to chill the bones
about a things that I saw
One night wandering in the everglades
I'd one drink but no more

I was rambling, enjoying the bright moonlight
Gazing up at the stars
Not aware of a presence so near to me
Watching my every move

Feeling scared and I fell to my knees
As something rushed me from the trees
Took me to an unholy place
And that is where I fell from grace

Then they summoned me over to join in with them
To the dance of the dead
In to the circle of fire I followed them
In to the middle I was led

As if time had stopped still I was numb with fear
But still I wanted to go
And the blaze of the fire did no hurt upon me
As I walked onto the coals

And I felt I was in a trance
And my spirit was lifted from me
And if only someone had the chance
To witness what happened to me

And I danced and I pranced and I sang with them
All had death in their eyes
Lifeless figures they were undead all of them
They had ascended from hell

As I danced with the dead
my free spirit was laughing and howling down at me
Below my undead body just danced the circle of dead

Until the time came to reunite us both
My spirit came back down to me
I didn't know if I was alive or dead
As the others all joined in with me

By luck then a skirmish started
And took the attention away from me
When they took their gaze from me
Was the moment that I fled

I ran like hell faster than the wind
But behind I did not glance
One thing that I did not dare
Was to look just straight ahead

When you know that your time has come around
You know you'll be prepared for it
Say your last goodbyes to everyone
Drink and say a prayer for it

When you're lying in your sleep, when you're lying in your bed
And you wake from your dreams to go dancing with the dead
When you're lying in your sleep, when you're lying in your bed
And you wake from your dreams to go dancing with the dead

To this day I guess I'll never know
Just why they let me go
But I'll never go dancing no more
'Til I dance with the dead

if somebody know RUSH amp settings for limelight,yyz and fly by night please emailme
