METALLICA and YOUSICIAN launch courses inviting fans to play alongside band
Yousician — a leading music education platform that offers lessons in guitar, bass, piano, voice and more — is launching Metallica x Yousician, a brand new collaboration with METALLICA featuring three beginner-friendly courses. Metallica x Yousician delivers an exclusive music learning experience in which guitarists learn to play the METALLICA songs they love with the multi-Grammy Award-winning and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame band. With exclusive tips from James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett, METALLICA fans can discover how to play their favorite riffs, dive into rhythm and leads, and get behind-the-scenes stories about the band’s musical journey.
Yousician‘s patented AI technology provides players with real-time feedback as they learn METALLICA classics from “Nothing Else Matters” and “One” to “The Unforgiven” and “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)” — a total of ten lessons, all utilizing the band’s original master tracks. Fans can access the first course beginning today, with the other courses rolling out in the coming weeks, by signing up for Yousician AT THIS LOCATION.
Hadley Spanier, head of artist partnerships at Yousician, said: “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.”
From there, players can take these insights and put them to use, learning and playing side-to-side with the band through the custom-made, AI-infused interactive lessons created utilizing the band’s original masters of ten of their greatest hits — “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”. As players learn to master these mega rock anthems and riffs, the patented AI technology on Yousician‘s platform will provide real-time feedback on their performance so that they can continue to build up to their rockstar best.
