TABULATORS TO GATES OF VALHALLA

HANX TO MANOEL

The whole song is based on the same repeated chord sequence, played
in a few diffrent ways.

Intro:
Played on bass, I can't see the point in tabbing it all sound to sound.
Just play it on these chords and show some invention:

dm, am, C, G, bm (American B, i.e. European H), F#, am, E.

Now, the riffs:

Riff one (for the better performance, play it with the pick in just one
direction):
E
B
G
D 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7
A 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 7 5 7 5 7 5 7 5 7
E 5

E
B
G
D 7 5 5 (...) 5 5 5 5 5 5
A 5 7 5 7 3 3 3 5 3 5 3 5 3 5 3 5 3 5 3 5
E 3

E
B
G
D 4 4 (...) 4 4 4 4 4 4
A 2 2 2 2 2 4 2 4 2 4 2 4 2 4 2 4
E 4

E
B
G
D 2 2 (...) 0 2 2 2 2 2 7 - and here you start
A 0 0 2 2 0 2 0 2 0 2 0 2 0 2 0 2 5 the riff again and
E 0 again, till:

Riff 2 (I think it's so-called Bridge)

E
B
G
D 7 5 4 2
A 5 7 3 5 2 4 0 2
E 5 3 2 0
Valhalla... Gods... Open... Gates... Great... Battle... With... In Hand...

Then you play the solo (Anybody has the tab?!) or just improvise in the
G-dur scale (presence of C and F# states it clearly enough) or in E-moll
scale (the sister scale for G-Dur) or, prefereably, both of them...

Now, Riff 1 again and...

... the "Final Battle Cry" is screamed upon Riff 3:

E
B
G
D 7 7 7 7 7 2
A 5 5 5 5 5 0
E

And the ending... you play it upon the monochromatic scale with fifths
through one octave, starting with F#5:

E
B
G
D
A 4 4 4 5 5 5 6 6 6 7 7 7 8 8 8 9 9 9 10 10 10 11 11 11 12 12 12 13 13 13
E 2 2 2 3 3 3 4 4 4 5 5 5 6 6 6 7 7 7 8 8 8 9 9 9 10 10 10 11 11 11

E
B
G
D
A 14 14 14 15 15 15 16 16 16
E 12 12 12 13 13 13 14 14 14

And let the amplifier scream for additional effects or improvise some more.

(...) means that i didn't see the point of typing the same fifth 24 times
(you don't have to count it, just play it as you hear)

Again, this song has a simple harmonic idea, but is great nevertheless...
Death to false metal, Hail and Eternal Glory to Manowar!!!!
