Fear of the Dark Free Lesson Video

Hey everyone! Thanks for checking out my Iron Maiden “Fear of the Dark” tab video. I wanted to address a couple of things about the intro clean section and the guitar solo section. First off, the intro clean section was quite challenging to capture the exact feel of the studio version. The lead guitar in that part is played a little loosely, but I did my best to get the rhythm figures as precise as possible. However, in the live versions I’ve seen, the rhythm is a bit more defined, so keep that in mind. Now, let’s talk about the guitar solo section.

The second solo was so fast that I had to take off my jacket! I know, I know, Dave Murray is the one who usually rocks the jacket and visually, it really should be the other way around. 😂

But it’s all in good fun – I hope you enjoy learning this song as much as I did. It has definitely given me a newfound appreciation for Iron Maiden. And don’t worry, there will be more Iron Maiden songs coming up on the page. I’d love to hear your suggestions on which songs you’d like to see next. Let’s keep the Maiden spirit alive! \m/

Isolated TRACKS (mp3)

Here are the drums, bass and other background tracks to jam along to Fear of the Dark. I've also included all of my isolated guitar tracks in case you really want to hear what's going on. Isolated tracks are normally very difficult to find online, and can be very helpful in cracking a difficult solo tab.
