Number of the Beast (Solos)

Animated Number of the Beast (Solos) tab by Iron Maiden on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

There are 2 solos in the middle of the song. The First is Dave Murray's solo. The Second is Adrian Smith. Both are fast and very skilful, with the occasional use of the whammy bar.

Just notice that at the end of Adrian's solo, he bends up the string then taps at the 20th fret, then releases the bend. He does this a couple of times. This is a pretty cool solo technique and worth knowing about!

As always, break things down into smaller chunks that you can practice more easily. Work at things slowed down, get them right, then work on building speed.
