    thanks Mark!

    I began to play the bass 4 months ago and I learned a lot from you. Today’s lesson with the Steve Harris riff puts a gigantic smile of my face. Any Iron Maiden riff will be welcome.

    Excellent work each time Mark and it’s a pleasure to learn from you!

    Hi Mark.

    thanks a bunch for this. For me, seeing Steve Harris when he played The clairvoyant at Donington was the reason to pick up the bass in the first place.

    Apart from the upcoming run to the hills please do the rhyme of the ancient mariner (probably just the key parts 🙂 🙂 🙂

    That would be awesome.

    Cheers from the Wulfman

    Hey Mark, Tailgunner is one of my fave Steve Harris lines, also Where the Wild Wind Blows, very cool. Pretty fond of Paschendale for the distortion
