Meet your new instructor, Grammy Award-winning guitarist Tom Morello, and get ready to uncover your authentic artistic self.
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.
This is the best class I've taken so far. Tom is well spoken, his message relevant and practical, and he does so in an encouraging way. Some of the lessons transcend playing guitar and could apply to anyone pursuing anything they're passionate about.
I'm still only half-way through this, but I've found plenty of inspiration already. As a long-time middling guitarist, I've needed a spark like this.
Many tips, very inspirational, great philosophy about gear. I did not know much about Tom M. as a person or musician, I just knew his music through his bands. I now admire Tom as a person; his message about being honest touched my heart in a relevant moment in my life. Thank you Tom! God Bless you.
Loved hearing Tom's thoughts about the guitar and about music. This class along with others that I am taking has taught me that a one size fits all approach is not what makes you a fantastic guitarist. Hard work and dedication to develop a unique style and perfect it is what makes an amazing guitarist.
