I decided it would be a great idea to teach my subscribers how to play this great Maiden song following the way that Adrian played the song in the video. I hope you have fun learning to play the song.
This lesson was inspired by a recent video posted by Adrian Smith on YouTube. He can be seen playing through the song Gangland and clearly having some fun while doing so.
“Gangland” is a song by Iron Maiden, written by drummer Clive Burr and guitarist Adrian Smith. It is the seventh track from the 1982 studio album The Number of the Beast.
The Number of the Beast was met with critical and commercial success, and became the band’s first album to top the UK Albums Chart and reach the top 40 of the US Billboard 200. The album produced the singles “Run to the Hills” and “The Number of the Beast”, the former of which became the band’s first top-ten UK single. The album was also controversial, particularly in the United States, due to the religious references in its artwork and the title track’s lyrics. Since the release of The Number of the Beast and its subsequent tour The Beast on the Road, “The Beast” has become an alternate name for Iron Maiden and was later used in the titles of some of their compilations and live releases, including Best of the Beast and Visions of the Beast.
