Alice Cooper’s guitarist Nita Strauss jammed with guitarist Thomas Zwijsen playing “Aces High” and “The Trooper” classics by Iron Maiden.
Zwijsen is the founder of the Nylon Maiden project that plays versions of the Iron Maiden classics on guitar.
The meeting of the 2 virtuosos shows the interesting overlap of electric guitar with acoustic guitar, Zwijsen’s specialty.
Nita plays her signature Ibanez guitar while Zwijsen plays the Ortega guitar.
The video was made at the Thomann Music Store which has an initiative called The Gearhead University 2018 (TGU18).
