NITA STRAUSS Plays IRON MAIDEN’s ‘Aces High’ At Bogota Clinic

Video footage of Nita Strauss, the Los Angeles-based guitar shredder for the Alice Cooper band, playingthe IRON MAIDEN classic “Aces High” to start a guitar clinic sponsored in Bogota, Colombia on September 11 can be seen above.

Speaking about what advice she would give to any young musicians, Nita said: “I think the real key to a successful career in the music business is just never give up — never give up on your dream, never give up on your passion, and do whatever it takes to get there. Take all the necessary steps, don’t take any shortcuts, get everything that you need to do in order, practice hard and be cool with people, get a good reputatation. Don’t be rude to people, don’t make problems. And that’s the most important thing, really. To be a professional musician, everything is about your image and your referral. And if you’re somebody that nobody wants to work with, guess what: nobody’s gonna work with you. [Laughs] So it’s important. And just practice hard and never, ever give up.”

Asked if her upcoming solo album will include any of her lead vocals, Strauss told The GuitCast podcast: “No. I want people to buy it, so I’m not gonna sing on it. [Laughs] I might have other people sing on it. I haven’t really decided yet.”

Strauss is a longtime Ibanez signature series endorsee who made her name with THE IRON MAIDENS, FEMME FATALE and LA Kiss.
