Ever wanted to get guitar lessons from Metallica? Well, you’re in luck, because the band have joined forces with instructional platform Yousician to offer fans a series of Masterclass-ish guitar lessons.
The classes are available via Yousician’s site, at a not-terrible cost of $99. Included with your purchase will be:
- Three guitar-focused courses on riffs, lead, and rhythm.
- The opportunity to learn the biggest hits directly from these master musicians including Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters, One, Fade to Black, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), The Unforgiven, Battery, Mama Said, Master of Puppets, and For whom the Bell Tolls.
- Real time feedback on your playing through Yousician’s proprietary AI technology that will help any rockstar-in-training play their very best.
- Tutorials with James and Kirk that will help you nail those rockstar skills like double bends.
- Exclusive interviews with the band where they share everything from their pre-show rituals, to what’s in their fridges these days (oat milk!), to their secrets for building skills, writing hit songs, and more.
According to Hadley Spanier, Head of Artist Partnerships at Yousician:
“The Metallica x Yousician courses get guitar players up close and personal with the master musicians they idolize. Players will have the opportunity to learn how to play like Metallica straight from Metallica! The unique course pairs unmatched access to the band with Yousician’s AI technology so that guitarists-in-training not only get to learn from the masters, but also get the feedback they need to improve. Players will feel like they are part of the band, playing alongside their idols as they try to master some of the greatest guitar-driven songs of all time ”
So there you go — if learning some guitar skills from James and Kirk is something you’ve always dreamed of, you can now take their Yousician classes from the comfort of your own home.
