Transylvania

Year: 1980 - Album: A Real Live Dead One

  		 
This is an approximation of how to play the instrumental 'Transylvania'  
off Iron Maidens 1st LP. Feel free to make corrections if you like, as this  
is far from complete and perfect. (Maybe someone wants to transcribe the solo 
or add the second guitar or bass or something...)

Solo: 
Just freak out over the progression Em | Em | D | D | C | D | Em | Em  
and end it all with an Em that fades into Strange World, which isn't too 
difficult to play... 
 
(Add that progression to any song you want and make it sound like Maiden :)
