Course description

Learn five Iron Maiden tracks note for note with Geoff Sinker. This superb course teaches you some of the best guitar riffs and solos from these monsters of heavy metal heavy metal!

Tracks included

Fear Of The Dark - Fear Of The Dark

Wasting Love - Fear Of The Dark

Be Quick Or Be Dead - Fear Of The Dark

Caught Somewhere In Time - Somewhere In Time

The Wicker Man - Brave New World

All lessons come with tabs, Backing track and Guitar Pro files

When creating this course I decided that I was not going to do a course with the more popular songs by Iron Maiden. Songs like Number Of The Beast, The Trooper, and 2 Minutes To Midnight have already been covered many time. So I decided to look at a number of song that have been requested by subscribers to my website, and songs that I personally like and enjoy to play.

Each of the songs come with a note by note lesson covering the main guitar parts of the song. Then I i have covered the guitar solos.

I have also included all the tablature for the songs in PDF. Each song also includes Guitar Pro 7 files in zip format for you to download and use.

Finally I have included backing tracks that I have created and used in the song lessons. These backing tracks have drum and bass guitar versions and also version where I include the guitar parts played by either Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, and Janick Gers. So you can take on the role of your favorite guitarist.

I would suggest an intermediate level of playing for this course to tackle the guitar solos, but beginner to intermediate would be ok playing many of the song lessons.

Please don not hesitate to contact me with comments and questions. You will notice this is part 1 I am already working on part 2 and I would love to hear from you for ideas for the next courses.

Have fun and enjoy the course.

Geoff Sinker has a Licentiate Degree In Teaching from Trinity College Of London, and teaches numerous students around the world online. Geoff started playing the guitar at 13, and by the age of 16 he was performing in bands in his local area of Bolton and Manchester. Always hungry to learn and expand his musical knowledge he studied under some of the foremost teachers at the time. He spent the 80s honing not only his performance and technical skills but also his teaching abilities. As well as performing in various rock bands he started teaching in various schools and academies including Kent County Schools where he was employed as their first contemporary music instructor for the guitar. In the late 80s he relocated to London, working in recording studios recording and doing session work during the daytime and playing live in the numerous bars and clubs in the evenings. He also set up his own private teaching company. As his experience working in studios grew he began to record music for advertising and marketing companies, and small radio stations. As well as his teaching role he worked as a session musician recording music for record companies including Virgin Records and Acid Jazz. In the 90s he made the bold step of moving to Florida. Where he focused on teaching, working privately and also in schools in the Orlando region. During that time, he was lucky to meet some great musicians that encouraged him to continue his own personal studies and grow his musical knowledge. As one who loves to travel and see new places he decided that his next stop would be Panama. A great place to learn Jazz and amazing Latin Rhythm. He really enjoyed his time down there and worked some wonderful bars and clubs. It felt like everyone wanted to learn to play the guitar, young and old. Next stop was Dubai. Here he focused 100% on teaching. It was actually in Dubai that he started offering Skype Guitar lessons to students based in the Middle East, now he spends more time in front of a computer than he does in the classroom. His love for teaching and exploring new technology means he can bring new and interesting ideas to his lessons.
