As a musician I’ve always had a passion for Iron Maiden. Over the years I’ve played, taught and recorded video lessons covering over 70 Iron Maiden songs.
Aces High was released as the second single from the Powerslave album in 1984.
The song is great to learn with quick fire guitar riffs and exciting dual guitar harmonies which have always been a trademark of iron Maiden.
The song is broken down into easy-to-follow sections and features on screen tablature. Special attention is made to the dual guitar harmonies performed by Adrian Smith and Dave Murray
For your convenience the Tablature is available to download in PDF and Guitar Pro 7 format
You also get the backing tracks that I have specially formatted for this course. The backing tracks feature both Harmonies so you can play as either Adrian or Dave and experience the actual sound of the recording. The song is played at a very quick tempo, so I have included backing tracks at slower tempos to help you gradually build up your speed.
Techniques you will learn in the song include:
- Melodic scale harmonies
- Quick shifting power chord
- Palm muting.
- Single note guitar riffs
