Wasted Years is the band’s fourteenth single release and the first from their sixth studio album, Somewhere in Time (1986).

It is the only song on the album that features no synthesizers. Released in 1986, it was the first single solely written by guitarist Adrian Smith, who also sings backing vocals. It reached number 18 in the UK Singles Charts.

This lesson covers all the rhythm guitar parts.

The song deals with subject of homesickness and alienation, as well as the negative aspects of the band’s nearly year long previous tour and personal problems that Smith and other band members were going through in that period.

At the same time the chorus suggests the idea that one should move beyond past troubles and look forward. The original working title was “Golden Years”, as can be heard on numerous Somewhere on Tour bootlegs.

The song is composed in the key of E minor. Adrian Smith plays the guitar solo.
