    Yep it is one of my favorite riffs of Maiden.
    Although if you look at the tab Jenna learned from I think the low E is hit too often. It should just be a drag on every 3rd beat the first 2 measures. I got no way to make a tab or sheet music though to show you.

    What do you think Sarah? Any other bass players feel free to comment as well.

    I would love to be a drummer but I've been told that I'm not allowed a drum kit...ever! :erk: I have a drum machine and I can kinda stumble my way through Sweet Child O' Mine, Paradise City and Girls, Girls, Girls from just listening to the record and trying to copy what I heard.

    The first songs I learned and played live were Wrathchild and Powerslave. I enjoy playing the Clive material, very fast and tasty!

    I couldn't agree more, graham24931! No matter what instrument you play, you just can't learn your own part in a Maiden song. Each instrument is so intricately connected. It's all in the composition, eh? :p :D

    First song learned by Maiden: I'd have to say it was Where Eagles Dare! Love kicking ass on that one. Love the great drum intro and the cool break in the middle with the snare/hi hat thing and then how it goes back into the jam. I liked that Eagles is a "loose" jam-style song that gives a drummer "room" to do a lot of fun and different rolls without taking away from the song. Man was that fun to play along to with the headphones on. I wasn't concerned about doing each fill exactly as Nikko did at exactly the right spot, I was interested in jamming to Maiden in my garage...and pissing the neighbors off royally. :loco:

    Sidenote: First song ever learned on drums: Heart of Glass by Blonde! Rock on,

    The first Maiden song I learned to sing was Losfer Words. It was initially quite hard to get each word pronounced just right, but after awhile I could sing it note for note just like Bruce.
