ABOUT YOUR TEACHER

Joss Allen

Joss's playing embodies everything great about heavy metal guitar: tight rhythm, fantastic technique, and insane shred! You can't listen to him for more than ten seconds without scrunching your face up in disgust! He's made YouTube videos with some of the biggest brands and retailers in Europe and writes original music for his band, Mutilius.

I love Musicisum! It's been so incredibly helpful and easy to follow that now I come home looking forward to sitting down with my guitar and laptop!

Massive thanks for the site, it's really helped me over the last few months and is without a doubt, the best online site I've ever experienced.

Musicisum is awesome! It's filled in all the gaps in my knowledge and my singing and guitar playing have leveled up, thank you so much!

Awesome tutorials btw, love the way the site works, it's very well organized, especially for guys like me who have no idea where to start.
