Jon Schaffer is a heavy metal guitarist and songwriter. He is the founder and only remaining original member of the heavy metal band Iced Earth. His most distinctive element of playing is his stuttering right-hand gallop which sounds like a tremendously sped up version of the 'eighth-note, two-sixteenth-notes' gallop made famous by Iron Maiden's bass player/songwriter Steve Harris. That sound cannot be
imitated by any other guitar player. When you hear Jon Schaffer, you think Iced Earth. Because Jon Schaffer IS Iced Earth.
Jon Schaffer is the guitarist for Iced Earth.
