What Students are Saying about Metal Riff Master

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."

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

MRM - Csaba Szabo

Your course and videos have helped me improve...

"I use your Metal Master Riff and of course I am participating on Metal Mastermind Courses (I just start the Module 5).
I have been playing guitar for many years on guitar, but only had an old acoustic one, and bought an electric in 2019.

I love metal and I am really glad that I found You on youtube. Your videos and course has helped me to improve on electric guitar, and I'm getting better and better."

MRM - Denis Connor

Jason's passion and energy are inspiring...

"I discovered Jason's videos on Youtube and found his instruction to be excellent. He has great passion and energy for teaching metal, which is inspiring and motivating. Concepts were very well explained, riffs are demonstrated at full speed and also at slower speed.

I have been playing metal on and off for many years but felt that I had much growing to do as a guitarist so I chose Jason's
Metal Riff Master course. Jason's Youtube video got me started with the 7-string. I'm working on the Metal Master Riff course currently and finding that the riffs
are getting my rhythm tight and just as important they are giving me ideas for songwriting.
The riffs are fun to play with the backing tracks and I run through the previous riffs every day as a drill and I can tell my endurance, speed and accuracy are really improving.
Jason's passion for metal is infectious and inspiring and I am very grateful to have him as my instructor to help me on my path to becoming the metal guitarist that I want to be.

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."

"What can I say?  Metal Mastermind is a must have for any guitarist, whether beginner or intermediate.  I have only been playing for a year and it has taken my guitar playing to another level.  For the price you really can't beat it.  For those who need help and love metal give it a try.  You won't be sorry METAL FOREVER!!!!"
