And Justice For All Guitar Lesson – Metallica

In this And Justice For All guitar lesson video series, I will show you note-for-note how to play this classic by Metallica.

This is one of the most requested Metallica songs here at GL365 and for good reason. There are tons of killers riffs in "And Justice For All" along with some cool harmony guitar parts and a crazy solo by Kirk Hammett.

We will be using standard tuning just like Metallica does on the original recording.

I will teach the entire song across two video lessons. In the first lesson I will show you the clean guitar intro, the harmony guitar parts of the intro, the killer transition riff we all know and love, along with the verse, pre-chorus and chorus.

As with most Metallica stuff, the rhythms can be pretty challenging and require you to really know how the song sounds before trying to put everything together.

I will start the second video lesson performing and teaching Kirk Hammett's guitar solo. This solo starts out with some melodic playing before Kirk ramps it with some lightning fast licks. He then makes it to sort of a bluesy section and concludes the solo with some death defying guitar runs that move down the fretboard at a very fast rate.

After the solo, I will teach all the remaining parts of the song.

This is a great song for the upper intermediate to advanced metal guitarist to learn. These are some of the best riffs every written. 🙂
