Legend Guitar Lesson – British Lion

In this Legend guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great song from Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) and his side project, British Lion, off their new album, The Burning.

The tuning is standard tuning. E A D G B E

The song starts with an arpeggiated picking riff that is based around a Bmin7 - GMaj6 chord progression, before ending with Emin to G.

The riff during the verse is basically a heavier version of the intro riff with heavy palm muting in a riff that uses a lot of string skipping.

For many of the riffs thoughout the song, there are some guitar layers consisting of melodies played with octaves. I will go through each one of those note-for-note.

During the bridge section, you will find that there are four guitar parts and a bass guitar line. However, even though I will show you how to play all of those parts, playing the two main guitar lines will recreate the effect heard on the album just fine.

Have fun with this one guys!
