Meet your new instructor, Grammy Award-winning guitarist Tom Morello, and get ready to uncover your authentic artistic self.
Topics include: Introduction
We live in a unique and wonderful time where electric guitars are things that we can rock on. There's a combination of rhythm, of rock, of feedback, of power, of rhyme, of shredding solos that when it's done right, you feel in it the reptilian DNA of humanity. In this MasterClass, I want to be blown away by what you do. And I can reveal my story. And how I went from a guy who had no idea what he was doing to making sounds and songs that felt that they were very honest to me and pushed boundaries that I didn't even know existed. And I want to try to be a wind in your sails and a steel in your spine as you're trying to go from being a good guitar player to not just being a great guitar player, but being someone who is like a-- like really finds themselves in the instruments. I'd like to teach a class that makes your guitar playing meaningful to you. Whatever it is that you want to do in it. If you want to play exactly like me, well, you're going to figure that out in this MasterClass. If you want to play guitar playing that feels exactly like you, hopefully, we will-- I'll reveal the building blocks of how you can do that to create an authentic, artistic self on the electric guitar that's going to be something that is going to give you a lifetime of awesome rockin'. I'm Tom Morello, and this is my MasterClass.
Tom Morello is a two-time Grammy winner and one of Rolling Stone’s "greatest guitarists of all time." In his first online guitar class, the co-founder of Rage Against the Machine will teach you the riffs, rhythms, and solos that launched his career and sent his music to the top of the charts. Tom will share his approach to making music that challenges the status quo and teach you how to create your own musical style.
I learned more about the process of becoming a better guitar player. I was also reminded of how important it is to be creative and authentic with my writing and performance.
I've tried 4 other online guitar classes in the past 5 years. This is the only course that has kept my interest. My playing is on fire now!
Excellent instruction - honest, practical, beneficial to beginner to intermediate level players, as well I expect some for advanced. An effective balance of craftsmanship and artisty instruction. Thanks to Masterclass and Tom Morello.
This was a great course. It really inspired me to experiment with different sounds and to find my own voice on the guitar. Tom is an inspiring lecturer. Two thumbs up!
