Smile Hi Everyone From Canada....

I have been a big fan of Saxon since my brother got me into metal back in the 80's. Crusader was my first song I heard, and when Biff's voice said "who dares to pass the ....." I freaked!!

Since then, I started buying albums that had weird beginnings or some sort of cool out of the norm lyrics or loops. Like "fast as a shark by Accept"!!

I wanted to start on here by asking: "does anyone know where I can purchase guitar tab like Cherry Lane books etc? I do alright for ear, but when they get playing the shred stuff, I just watch in awe. Although I've played by ear and am' self taught for 17 yrs. I never pursued the real fast licks much. Just the usual AC/DC Thunderstruck, Back In Black, Black Dog by LZ etc, but never really learned to trill or shred!!

Any how, hope to be able to talk to the real band members sometime and soon see them live. I love the Live at Wacken videos on YouTube...Crusader, Dallas 1pm, Denom and Leather, Princess of the Night, and Strong Arm of the Law are just a few of my favorites. I'd love to know if the Wacken live concert was made into a video that one could buy as well.

Take care everyone...
