never heard that specific song, but if its anything like their other songs hammer onto the 18 from the 15, and then pull off to the 15

well....just looking at it...it might be a hammer on and a pull off...i think it is a hammer on pull off


actualy my freind said its like a slide (im talking to him on msn so he cant show me (he sucks at guitar anyway ))

if it was a slide it would probably have

-15-/-18-\-15-

Sounds like a hammer on/pull off "trill".

To play most Maiden solos properly isn't easy imho and is about playing very very fluidly, cleanly and with good melodic control. Remember it's not about whacking up the gain and playing sloppily but about precision, good legato and a bluesy style.

Keep it real, and good luck

I think you mean this, to play this part just hammer on the 18 and pull off to the 15, keep doing that fast without using your picking hand.

Who's solo are we talking about here? I'm guessing Dave's from what you've posted.

But yeah, just take it slow and build up speed, you'll get it eventually.
