We present you with the list of the easiest Iron Maiden songs to play on guitar. Insider Monkey’s article will help you which one to choose if you want to impress your friends. Their songs are not only remarkably impactful but also extremely fun to play! Enough for every guitarist to be at least trying their hands on one Iron Maiden song in their guitar playing lifetime, just to experience the high of playing their catchy satanic patterns. We are all guilty of looking up guitar lessons for an Iron Maiden song, sometimes only to be discouraged by the insane shredding and fast playing that are way above our level right now!
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the easiest Iron Maiden songs to play on guitar from their list.
The first one is Run to the hills. The double bends can be a little tricky if you are just beginning with your techniques. However, the licks are fairly simple to get started with the technique. What can be a better idea than to pick up a new skill and learn an Iron Maiden track at the same time? Check out how to play Run to the Hills on guitar in the video below. The second one should be The Number of the Beast. Playing Number of the Beast, which ranks 10th on our list of easiest Iron Maiden songs to play on guitar is a good time keeping exercise. Even though at first glance it may seem complicated once you slow it down and get the hang of it, it is really a piece of cake (uh, you can really have your cake and play it too!). And, it’s a cool riff to learn. At last, but not least we are mentioning you The Wicker Man. Apart from the few sweeps in the solo, The Wicker Man off the 2000 album Brave New World, has pretty straight forwards chord rhythms and simple riffs. Most parts of the solo aren’t too tough to conquer as well, and we’d say with a little conviction you can get there!
