    What are the best examples of their work?
  10. Well, I would say for Cliff you would be looking at the Kill em All album. Don't get too hung up on Anesthesia tho, its good but I believe his best work lies in the following:
    Master of Puppets
    Hit The Lights
    Seek and Destroy
    Blitzkreig (although thats a cover)
    Fight Fire with Fire

    As for Steve, I find that newcomers to the Iron Maiden scene enjoy songs like Fear of the Dark. Then, for more Awesome Steve playing try:
    Aces High
    The Trooper
    Blood Brothers
    No More Lies

    There are a lot more songs by these two out there, but those should keep you occupied, especially if you intend to learn them!
  11. Very worthy joice. Have fun learning.

    to the OP: don't take this the wrong way, but....is this a serious thread? even if you're not into metal, i can't see how a TBer wouldn't have heard of Harris or Burton
  13. All good stuff, just one thing: Fear of the Dark the song is okay, if you are looking to buy an album Fear of the Dark is NOT the one to get. Probably the worst record they ever made.

    cliff's wildest playing is on 'Call of the Ktulu', much better than pulling teeth and orion imo. just a shame you can't really hear it. with excellent headphones it's barely audible. the little solo in orion is excellent though.
  18. I dont like metallica :bag:

    You don't have to like Metallica to appreciate Cliff Burton. I don't necessarily like Iron Maiden, but I greatly admire Steve Harris' playing. In fact I used to sit and watch my brothers Iron Maiden video tapes strictly for the purpose of watching Harris tear that bass up.
