iron maiden rare guitar solo

so i was just searching for some live maiden stuff on limewire hoping i could find something besides just the songs off the live albums, like a cool nicko drum solo or some sweet bass solo steve may have done in between songs. well one of the results that popped up was 'iron maiden rare guitar solo live' and i downloaded it. this is some frikkin awesome guitar playin, and if its anyone of the 3 maiden guitarists its obviously dave. but the thing is im not 100% sure if it actually is maiden (i hate the mislabeled files on p2p programs, i was downloading a children of bodom video the other day and it turned out to be porno. wtf?). so yeah im just wonderin if anyone else has heard this and knows if its actually maiden..its some really good guitar playin and shows dave at his best (if it really is him).

btw hello to everybody. ive been a guest here for a long time so i know about the..well..lets say..eccentric personalities of some of the people here ::cough::Maverick::cough:: haha its all good though hes funny.

You know...
it's very hard to tell if the guitar solo is by Maiden if we haven't heard it. While "some frikkin awesome guitar playin" is a description fit for almost everything of Maiden's material, it is likewise a good description of Jimi Hendrix or Led Zeppelin.

If you are talking about the solo I am thinking about, it is indeed Dave. It was a solo played live after To Tame a Land or Powerslave, not quite sure.

Check [a href=\'http://www.maidenfans.com/imc/index.php?url=sounds&link=features&lang=eng\' target=\'_blank\']The Commentary[/a] too, maybe you will find some similar solos...

i'm sure, it is the solo after powerslave which is of course amazing and quite arabic-like...and it's Dave yes!
 
well it sucks that none of the little sound bits in the commentary work for me...realplayer says that all the links are broken. but yes the beginning is quite arabic-sounding so yeah im guessing its the solo after powerslave, thanks guys. but i really wish i could hear that dave/adrian duel from somewhere on tour tho...

The sound files on the Commentary have sadly been lost and I haven't had the time to make new ones. If there's any voluteer out there who would be willing to make these new files and send them to me, I'd be very grateful.

The end solo's were always done by Dave Murray. I dunno how he got that sound, but i bought dimarzio super distortions to try and mimic it. Ive been trying for a year now to get a sound like that and its hard. I know the solo your talking about it, and i agree its one of the best i've ever heard. Murrays solo's from Beast over Hammersmith after transylvania , and some gigs during POM and Powerslave tours were one of the solos; by Dave murray, that you were listening to.

Anyways IMO that was the era of Maiden i drool over when it came to guitar playing. Their live performances back then had a more defined sounds IMO. Murrays sounds has changed over the years, one that is not to my liking as much compared to the early years. Every live new concert i see from maiden i look for a solo by Daave murray, but im usually out of luck when i want to see one . Hopefull with Maiden's new tour , Murray could mimic his solos from the old days with the same rig or something. I juist wish he'd play the same sound he had back at the dawn of the Maiden era.

Maybe we might see a duel between the 3 of them! I think that would be awesome, each with their different styles and stuff. And then at the end of the duel they could all harmonize a crazy solo together..release their max potentials.. [!--emo&:wub:--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/wub.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'wub.gif\' /][!--endemo--] ..in my dreams lol. actually if i had it my way i would want to see all of them solo..especially steve, im sure he can do some really crazy stuff we havent seen him to before.

The names comes from that the solo is based on a tune called Walking on Glass, i think. And that's Dave and Adrian that plays it together.
