Iron Maiden’s ‘Wasted Years’ Performed in Flamenco Style [Watch]
It isn’t too uncommon for a few metalheads to be present in classical or flamenco guitar classes in college. Since universities don’t offer a degree in shredding, metal musicians turn towards these academically acknowledged classes to expand their influences and playing spectrum. Of course, it all comes back to metal in the end, which is evident here.
Iron Maiden‘s hit ‘Wasted Years’ off 1986′s ‘Somewhere in Time’ is given the flamenco treatment by two guitarists in this video. One handles the leads, including the vocal melodies while the other keeps the rhythm flowing. This is a fun adaptation and can help you get your Maiden fix, even when you aren’t in the mood for heavy music. Wait, why would that ever happen!?
