How To Play The Evil That Men Do By Iron Maiden – Rhythm Guitar Parts.

Another lesson from the Iron Maiden series I am recording. Being the 30th anniversary of the Seventh Son Of A Seventh Song album release I am slowing working through the entire album.

The Evil That Men Do” is the band’s seventeenth single and the second from their seventh studio album, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (1988). The single debuted at number six in the UK charts and quickly rose to number five.

The title of the song is taken from Marcus Antonius’s speech while addressing the crowd of Romans after Caesar’s murder (Act 3, scene 2, “The Forum”) in William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: “The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones.” Bruce Dickinson may sometimes repeat this before playing the song, but in reverse (as he did in Rock in Rio). However, the poetic lyrics of the song are unrelated to this.

The guitar solo in “The Evil That Men Do” is played by Adrian Smith which I will be posting the guitar solo by Adrian Smith very shortly.
