The above riff is played four times. The last note in the measure
is the first note of the next one. That`s why the first note above
is in brackets. Adrian Smith used to play this note as a pinch
harmonic.

On repeat 3 and 4 Dave harmonises with:

Janick Gers plays the above part on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th strings
between frets 2-5. Try both and see what you think.

BASSLINE:

The bass is mainly just E and C as follows, except for before the
second verse he goes to D for one cycle.
This is the bassline for most of the song.
I`ll just show the basic notes. Listen for the strum pattern.

Before 2nd Verse only

VERSE:

The following riff goes with all the verses. Listen for the
16th note strumming and the rests at the start of the first verse.
The G chord denoted below is an inversion of a G5 (power chord).
It should be played with an upstroke i.e. the G note first while
the D power chords should be played with down strokes.
For the C5 I`ve shown the open E note on the sixth string in
brackets. This is sometimes played whether by accident or design.
It gives the 1st inversion of a C major triad.

CHORUS:

The chorus is really just D to E (implied minor) but between the
singing Dave strums a pattern on the second fret. This is done
with the pad of the first finger and lifted up where necessary.
Once again, listen for the strumming.

Oh, Oh,... Oh
