You asked for it, so we've brought song tabs back to Total Guitar! Every issue, you'll find a full tab of a rock anthem in our Classic Track feature, plus tab, chords and lyrics for a complete tune in our Open Mic Songbook lesson, starting this issue with Iron Maiden's 'Two Minutes To Midnight' and George Ezra's huge hit single, 'Budapest'. As well as this, your TG CD comes with studio-quality backing tracks of the song for you to play over (streamable in our digital edition).

Inside this month's mag:
