Premium Channel, In depth Guitar lessons

This video lesson covers all the sections of the song apart from the two guitar solos, these will be covered in a later lesson.

This is a very long song and has numerous guitar parts so i would advise to follow the lesson with the aide of the tabs that have been attached. I have also included a Guitar Pro 6 file that can also be used to help you practice the song.

The single “Fear of the Dark (live)” is the 26th single released by the band. This live version of the song (as well as the live versions of “Bring Your Daughter… to the Slaughter”, “Be Quick or Be Dead”, and “Tailgunner”) are taken from the live album A Real Live One.

 

The single reached number 8 in the UK charts. The live version of “Hooks in You” was recorded at the Wembley Arena, London, UK on 17 December 1990. The initial pressing of the 7″ cut-to-shape vinyl picture disc listed Hooks In You (live) as the B-side but actually played Tailgunner (live). This mis-press was quickly corrected by EMI on future pressings.

 

 

“Fear of the Dark” was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1994 in the “Best Metal Performance” category, but lost to “I Don’t Want To Change The World” by Ozzy Osbourne.

 

When the song is performed live, the audience always sings along to the melody during the soft (and sometimes the heavy) sections, at times becoming louder than the band themselves. It has been featured on all the band’s live albums since its release.

The cover features Eddie as Steve himself playing on his bass guitar live on stage.
