I was wondering how to write nwobhm riffs (bands like Saxon, Diamond Head, Iron Maiden (maybe not NWOBHM but one of my fav bands) motorhead (again not NWOBHM but good), and Judas Priest) and whether to write vocals or music first. Whatever other knowledge you have of composing NWOBHM-type music/vocals would be helpful.

heres what my friend does lol basically use C,D,E,B powerchords in different orders then throw a harmonized riff of some sort on top,of course it's not that easy but you'll see what i mean

For Saxon do some double stops on the A and D, or D and G strings with and open A string pedal note in between.

Lots of power chords, harmonies, fast licks, some tempo changes and galloping.

Edit: Fuck yeah Saxon! Not enough people like Saxon.

LOL, for some reason the impression I get from you is like some wacky Frank Zappa of metal pulling pranks at the Grammys and telling crude jokes during interviews.

The best thing to do is to learn heaps of the bands songs that you wanna sound like.

I only know 3 LoG songs and I'm kinda trying to shake the influence now because, well, just listen to my songs lol.

Have a think about the word 'galloping' for a second, and then think of how that might relate to playing guitar.
