Trying to learn The Trooper by Iron Maiden and is it a single note gallop or is it a powerchord, or is it cause both Dave and Adrian are playing it and it sounds like a powerchord?
LOL

You CAN gallop power chords, dunno if the song calls for it though.

I think I play it as a powerchord? Haha, I can't remember. Sounds good either way. I like the fullness of the powerchord though.

The Trooper is Power chord, galloped.

is it a down down down gallop or down up down. Cause if its all 3 down's then its a lot more effort lol, just saying can down up down chords? without them sounding the other way when going up?
LOL

I play it as "chord - down up - chord - down up - chord - down up chord" etc... hoe that makes sense


This is the way I play it. It definitely sounds the best.

Down-Up-Down ; Down-Up-Down ; Down-Up-Down

You get the picture.

For one Down-Up-Down, is the only way to fast and efficiently gallop (Raining blood, four horseman, and lotsa other stuff) second, when I play the trooper (and everyone Else I know thats a guitar player) I gallop the whole power chord,

Raining Blood uses the reverse gallop and The Four Horsemen uses triplets, both of which are different rhythms than the gallop in The Trooper. Please read the link in my sig; it breaks down the three rhythms mentioned above.

Well yes you can reverse gallop, I did forget that, but even if your doing triplets your still going to be picking down up down, or up down up.

A triplet should be played D U D U D U, not D U D D U D. If you can play those consecutive downpicks, downpick the whole thing. That link explains everything correctly.

I play The Trooper with all power chords, not chord-single-single. Awesome song btw! I'm coming back to it now to learn the 2nd solo because when I learned the song I only learned the first one .

If anyone can play it with all down strokes, post a vid and you will be my hero.
