Hm...I have always wanted to learn the Powerslave solo. Maybe this'll motivate me to actually do so...

Then again, Aces High would be so fun...

Ah can't decide!!!

That cover wasn't bad, it was a little sloppy, but I still like it'll probably do pretty good.

Aww, but your Seventh Son cover was awesome!
I'm pretty sure you can change yours, though. I'm not the threadstarter, but as far as I'm concerned, it's alright.
Hope it goes well. That song is awesome too; I'd love to hear a cover of it.
#25
haha what he said ^^^^

i cna't wait to hear that cover your other one was really good too

Cool, thanks guys. I like 7th Son. It's just that I recorded that like a month ago, so I wanna try something new and I've always wanted to try cover Somewhere in Time.

Judging by how good your Seventh Son cover came out, I'm sure your Somewhere in Time cover will be sweet too.

Its a small world.

I've been to your d.music page tonnes of times just to find out that your also on UG.

Wow.
Change is good.

****. Not enough time to record a new one. My cable broke the other day and I cant fix it, and due to the circumstances in my country I cant go down to the guitar shop to buy a new one. I guess Ill have to enter my current cover of rainmaker, but im not happy with it that much.,

That's just about flawless, dude. Bruce's vocals add so much to that song, but even without vocals... that's an incredible cover.
Maybe I'm biased because that song kicks so much ass, but seriously; awesome cover.
#33
Thanks man. It's such a great song, so all you need to do is pretty much play it the way Maiden play it and it's bound to sound good.
