I figured I'd make some kind of 'official' thread where guitar players can ask for help in transcribing and playing Maiden songs. It would be great if this helps us grow a sense of larger guitar playing community so we can get help faster with learning the songs we want to play. I found out...
Yes I'm aware of the guitarists using those solid state amps on SIT. I meant something along the lines of "nearly his entire career".
Why don't they just release a Marshall signature series then? I think it's bullshit to make a signature series on something that doesn't fit the definition of...
I'm just gonna make a list of 5 guitarist I have the most respect for. Number 3 and 4 I don't listen to all the time but the things I did hear from them was enough to seal the deal on them being amazing.
1. David Gilmour
2. Adrian Smith
3. Tony Iommi
4. Jake. E. Lee
5. Dave Murray
The entire TFF album is crap to a degree. With the exception of El Dorado and When the Wild Wind Blows (which I have found a new appreciation for after seeing the live rendition from En Vivo).
I particularly hate Isle of Avalon because of how the song turns out after the cool ambient intro. I...
I'm so glad you recognize it's genius (wink). This song is bonecrushing, raw and hard. It's the rawest and most powerful song Maiden has made. I will not say much more about it except that the fusion between heavy metal and Arabic/Egyptian melodies resonate extremely well with me.
Having read the last few pages of the thread, here is an unpopular Maiden opinion for you:
The Nomad is my most favorite Maiden song. It beats out Alexander, Seventh Son, Hallowed, Fear of the Dark and everything else for me.
Absolute favorite track.
Yes that tiny one. It took me a while to appreciate it but when I look at it I see Eddie. That arrogant smirk, he radiates a personality. As if he is the only one actually alive inbetween the soldiers who are merely skeletons.
You are right, Eddie is in a shade, I didn't see it correctly...
I would have preferred if the cover of the 'book' inside the deluxe edition have been the official cover.
Imagine the words 'Iron Maiden' at the top with the same faded out 'old' style in orange at the top. Would look so good.
Or as an alternate option even the picture on the...
I consider the hate on Angel and the Gambler just a mindless apeing mentality. Someone reads a heavily overblown comment on the song and how the chorus is repeated 40 million times and they pick up on that and repeat the mantra.
They love how they are aware of that the chorus is repeated a lot...
I think it's the melancholic melodies in the beginning and in the middle that do it for me. Plus that awesome outro. I hesitated on calling it a masterpiece while I wrote it as well but that was the first word that came to my mind. I realize I may be overstating it.
