Watch the Iron Trooper online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Metal Guitar Licks You MUST Know
A collection of must know metal licks would be criminally incomplete without an appearance from the dual guitar team of Dave Murray and Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden. If for nothing else, these two Englishmen are a shining example of how contrasting styles complement each other allowing every elongated solo section to never sound tired. This lick takes key moments from their respective solos heard in "The Trooper". First is a snippet from Dave Murray's signature blues-based trills followed by a catchy repetitive run based on an Em arpeggio courtesy of Adrian Smith. It doesn't get much more "must know" than this!
