Easy Guitar Lesson-How to Play a Judas Priest Intro

Easy Guitar Lesson-How to Play a Judas Priest Intro

By Gary E Kerkow

The band

Judas Priest is a British heavy metal band that was formed in Birmingham, England, back in 1969. The band became known for sizzling twin guitars, a strong operatic vocal style, and for introducing the leather and studs look into heavy metal. The band is widely regarded as one of the most original heavy metal bands ever. Many musical artists, especially metal and hard rock ones, cite them as a major influence. Judas Priest has sold over 50 million albums worldwide. They were ranked the second greatest metal band of all time by MTV. This easy guitar lesson will have you playing one of their famous intros.

About the song

The Judas Priest song “Breaking The Law” was released as a single from the British Steel album in 1980. This song has a simple main riff, and chorus. Nevertheless, it was one of Judas Priest’s big breakthrough songs. It reached number 12 on the British Charts, and is now considered one of the greatest Hard Rock/Heavy Metal songs ever recorded.

It tells a story of someone who gets sick and tired of his ordinary, boring life. As a result, he decides to take a chance, and start breaking the law. The video has become a cult classic, and is played on VH1’s Metal Mania show. The song was ranked # 40 on VH1’s Greatest Metal songs list. It has been used in TV commercials, movies, The Simpsons, and Beavis and Butthead. Now, you will be able to play this famous intro by following my easy guitar lesson.

How to play the intro

The “Breaking The Law” intro consists of 4 measures. It is written in tablature first, and then wrote out for those who do not read tabs.The first two measures are played over an Am chord. The third measure is played over an F chord. The last measure is played over a G chord. Repeat the pattern twice. It is important to note, the sixth string is the thickest, and lowest sounding string.

Listen to the original

I recommend listening to the original Judas Priest recording. This will help you get the timing of the intro. Anytime you work on a song, it is important to listen to a certain segment first, and then practice that part of the song. You can tune your guitar to this song by matching the first note of the intro to the open fifth string of your guitar.

Gary E Kerkow has been playing guitar for several decades. This includes teaching guitar, and playing in successful bands that toured the Twin Cities area. Kerkow is also an accomplished piano player.

Beginners, Don’t Fret the Fret Board

Beginners, Don’t Fret the Fret Board

By Chris Glyde

When a beginner starts playing guitar, they’re filled with a sense of passion and excitement. They imagine themselves playing all the songs they love effortlessly. They can’t wait to start and they can’t wait to improve.

Many lose this fire early on. They struggle to play chords, they struggle to play basic melodies and the guitar is in general, uncomfortable to play.

They see their guitar hero’s or other players playing seamlessly and they become disappointed. The Beginner, begins to slide down farther and farther until they get stuck in a pit of frustration and sadness. They begin to doubt whether they can play the guitar.

Some even begin to scream at their guitar or bite their hands out of sheer frustration. I did!

First, you need to realize that this frustration is natural. Every beginner goes through this phase. In fact, even the players you admire have gone through these phases.

This frustration causes most beginner guitar players to quit after the first six months. I’m not trying to intimidate you, just giving you the facts. Let’s look at why the beginners quit in more detail.

1) These beginners get intimidated by the physical difficulties of learning guitar.

Guitar is one of the most physically demanding instruments. Beginners who take lessons or try to teach themselves assume they’re going to be doing all the easy work first. This assumption couldn’t be more wrong.

The problem with this train of thought, lies in the students past learning experiences. When we go through the educational system as children what do we start off learning? We learn the alphabet, the days of the week and the name of the months. All this really basic material. Then as we graduate from each grade level, the material we learn gets more difficult. We learn how to add, subtract and multiple then we move up to algebra, calculus and so on.

Beginner guitar students falsely assume that everything is going to be easy in the beginning. When a beginner starts to struggle, all these false assumptions and thoughts go through their head. They think, this is the beginning, the easy part. I can’t handle this and it’s only going to get harder.

Guitar is NOT like the standard educational system. Guitar becomes easier and easier the more you practice and the more you play.

As a beginner, you need to realize that the guitar is never going to get harder to play then it is right NOW. Today you may struggle, tomorrow you will struggle a little less, the next day it will get even easier. If you can make it past that 6 month barrier, it’s going to get a lot easier!

2) Beginners make the deadly mistake of comparing themselves to their hero’s.

Many beginners are inspired to learn guitar by other artists or musicians. This can be beneficial to their growth because it gives them a goal to reach towards. However, it can also be very detrimental to their ability to progress as a guitar player. Beginner guitar players are very impressionable. This can really damage their resolve, especially when they begin to struggle.

The more a beginner struggles and the more they idolize certain players, the harder it will be for them to make progress. When they struggle, they compare themselves to the guitar players they look up to and come up with the assumption that they must have some god given talent. Their struggling so much right now, that they can’t imagine playing on that persons level and they quickly stick this person on some god like pedestal.

Putting someone on a god like pedestal of unattainable skill is instantly limiting your own potential. A human can never reach the level of a god. So if you stick someone on the level of a god, then you will never reach them.

You need to realize that all players even the players you worship were beginners once. They are human and they struggled just as much as you in the beginning.

3) The final mistake many beginners make is trying to teach themselves.

The majority of beginner guitar students who quit within the first 6 months are self-taught. Some people just can’t afford a teacher. In fact, I taught myself out of a book for the first 8 months because as a high school student with a minimum wage paying job, I couldn’t afford weekly lessons.

After those 8 months went by, I didn’t know where to go, I hadn’t made all that much progress and was overwhelmed. I went and found a teacher and I benefited enormously.

My progress skyrocketed, I was able to keep up with many of my friends who had already been playing for years. I could relax and learn, instead of wondering if what I was working on was helping me improve. After a while, I became addicted to the progress I was making and couldn’t stop practicing.

With a teacher you can gain all the same benefits I received.

So remember, it only gets easier. You can accomplish your goals and with some guidance, your dreams can become a reality. The beginning is hard, but endure and you will develop a skill you can carry with you for the rest of your life.
