Metallica has partnered with the online music education platform Yousician, which means you can learn all their hit songs. They show you exactly how they play all the rhythm parts, leads and killer riffs using the AI learning platform.
Metallica has worked with Yousician and now you can learn how to play songs like Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters, One, Fade to Black, Welcome Home (Sanitarium) and For Whom The Bell Tolls. This means that musicians will have the opportunity to learn how to play like Metallica straight from the people that wrote all the tracks in the first place.
With a modern AI learning platform, which includes direct access to the whole band, you could progress through the band’s back catalogue. Having feedback via the app on a smartphone, tablet or desktop will make getting those riffs and licks down a lot easier.
Having James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett showing you how they play their parts, plus drummer Lars Ulrich and bassist Rob Trujillo telling you their side, should give you a great insight into getting the songs under your belt.
You can sign up for a free 7-day trial before you buy and get stuck in learning the songs. Yousician does various monthly or yearly membership plans, so you have. a few options on how you join up if you decide to go all in.
I think this is a great way for musicians to learn some famous tracks, and it is not every day that you get to learn a piece of music directly from the people that wrote the songs. It certainly beats badly written tabs and dodgy YouTube lessons, that often get songs completely wrong.
