‘Powerslave’ by Iron Maiden Guitar Solo Lesson w/Chris Zoupa

Ever wanted to learn the epic solo from ‘Powerslave’ by Iron Maiden? Put on your Egyptian god getup and prepare for some emotive power shred.

This solo is drifts between a few positions of the ‘B’ minor pentatonic along with some straight natural minor stuff too. It has a few quick runs but most of it is either slides or a combination of hammer ons and pulloffs. Occasionally there’s a slightly irritating pinky stretch.

Have fun with this one guys!
