Filmed with the GoPro Hero 3 BE. Audio recorded through the awesome Axe FX II by Fractal Audio.

“The Trooper” was written by Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris and released on the album “Piece of Mind” in 1983.

The tab and backing track were created by me.


If you don’t have Guitar Pro, you can open the tab in TuxGuitar, which is available as freeware.

Have fun!
