How to play Moonchild by Iron Maiden the complete guitar lesson.
This lessons shows you section by section how to play Moonchild from the 1988 album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. I have also included the keyboard section which is played on the guitar by Adrian Smith when Maiden play live.
It is the first Iron Maiden release to feature keyboards. Like The Number of the Beast and, later, Fear of the Dark, The Final Frontier and The Book of Souls, it debuted at No. 1 in the UK Albums Chart.
Metal Hammer states that “Moonchild” is loosely based on the Aleister Crowley novel of the same name.
The are two solos in this song the first solo is played by Adrian Smith, the second by Dave Murray.
This was to be the last album that Adrian Smith recorded with band until his return in 1999.
