  • Welcome to my latest lesson which focuses on the guitar playing of Glenn Tipton from Judas Priest!

    Along with KK Downing, Glenn formed the 2 guitar attack which provided the meat and the crunch for Priest's music.

    In contrast to Downing, Tipton's solos tend to feature a more melodic, legato sound, making use of harmonic minor scales, Aeolian mode, pentatonic scales and techniques such as sweep-picking arpeggios, legato picking, tremolo/alternate picking, hammer-ons and pull-offs, and the solos often showcase both accuracy and aggression. - Wikipedia

    Glenn has a very recognisable playing style and he often inserts semi pinch harmonics into his riffs as well.

    This lesson will work on:

    - Alternate picking
    - Palm muting
    - Down strokes
    - Phrasing
    - Legato
    - Pinch harmonics

    So, if you want to feel some British Steel, grab your guitar and get some!
