Iron Maiden - Revelations

Written by

    From the album "Piece of Mind", Revelations by Iron Maiden is an all time classic. One part that I have always loved is the clean chord progression that sits beneath the two guitar harmony lead lines.

    Here is a version of it that is good fun to practise. The temptation is to barre the low F.. but this makes it unsuitable for letting the open G string ring out.  This is one of those occasions where using the left hand thumb to fret the bass note can be useful.

The Chord Progression is A Minor, F Major and C Major with an alternating picking pattern throughout. If playing the low F is too awkward, the octave above can be used instead.
