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.
Definitely one of the best guitar classes I've encountered. Tom goes deep with his experience and expertise on guitar playing and does not phone it in in any of these video lessons. I have learned many things with this Master Class and I would encourage others to spend their money on something as righteous as this class.
I didn't know Tom Morello when I started this class, but I had heard of Rage—and I probably had heard some of their music—and didn't like it. Forget that! This guy is a terrific and motivating teacher. I started practicing more, and I completed my first two music videos during this class. Will they go viral? I doubt it. But I'm having a ball. What else matters?
Creatively stimulating even aside from the guitar instruction. Great overall advice for performing, playing, creating, and thinking... something for all of us.
That was fuckin sweet, can't wait to watch it again.
