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.
This class was powerful. When listening to someone who is passionate and so down to earth at the same time, a cathartic revelation comes to you. You realize that Tom Morello is not just a guitar player, this is not just a music class, it is a philosophical journey that helps one to become ... yourself.
Tom Morello's insight & bold authenticity not only lead me forward in my guitar play but backwards in my artistry, reconnected to an early inspired me
A little bit too much gear and gimmick talk at first, but in the made he made clear, that it is all irrelevant.
This was a remarkable class for me. Although I play mandolin, not guitar, and I knew virtually nothing about Tom Morello before this MasterClass, I have to say that this was really enjoyable and challenging for me. He broke through a couple of myths about progressing as a musician and I found his perspective to be very compelling. Thanks Tom.
