The Writing On The Wall Guitar Lesson – Iron Maiden

In this The Writing On The Wall guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this epic track from Iron Maiden in its entirety.

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

I will start the lesson with the acoustic guitar intro, that I will teach using an acoustic simulator and a strat for convenience. 🙂 From there, I will cover each section of the song in the order that each appears on the original recording.

In addition to all of the killer riffs, I will cover the entire solo section in depth. This includes the first solo, followed by the octave section, followed by the second solo section.

There are some killer solos in this one, so it is well worth the effort to work your way through them.

Keep in mind, as I mentioned in the video lesson, this lesson was filmed just a few days after “The Writing On The Wall” was released. Because of that, there is no footage of them playing this live online yet. So there may or may not be a couple of licks that are played in a different position of the fretboard than what I teach in the lesson. 

Have fun learning this great song from Iron Maiden! Carl…
