What Students are Saying about Metal Guitar Apprentice

MRM - Joshua Kingstone

Jason is hands down the best at making it easy and understandable...

"I am 41 years old with a lot of experience playing mediocre guitar that forced me into playing with music outside of my favorite genre.  I got tired of playing with beats and synths and decided it was time to brave the world of the unknown and learn to do what I really want:  Play metal.

I scoured youtube looking for someone that fit both the style, and taught in a way I could listen.  Jason is hands down the best at making it easy and understandable.  The playing it right isn't easy, but just in the small time since I've been doing these lessons, my picking and fingering have increased enough that I can comfortably record.

I can't thank Jason enough for giving me a path to the music I've always wanted to play."

MRM - Kent L

This course helps my learning my style...

"I like Metal Riff Master very much. Im still in the Module 1 because I'm following your Youtube lessons and getting ideas from that. I get so many new ideas and I'm learning to hear all variations in a song better. I am pleased to see that the course is expanding. I am a Maiden fan and my best friend is a Metallica fan and this course helps me combining this bands playing style mixed with your learning. It's great!"

Kent Lundstrom

Metal Riff Master Review - Woody

Riffs to create your own masterpieces...

"Jason  gives you great examples of riffs to use to create your own masterpieces. Slowly showing the riffs with him playing  and also available tabs and backing tracks to follow. Even beginners and intermediate players can follow and learn. I have only been using it for a short time and it is an important part of my learning of metal playing."
