EPICA guitarist Isaac Delahaye has released his first six courses as part of College Of Metal, an online educational metal music platform that enables anyone to learn from the best metal musicians in the world.
Unlike most guitar lessons, artists at College Of Metal focus on songs rather than on techniques exclusively. That's why every individual course is a walkthrough of a song, explaining whatever techniques are used in the context of that specific song.
All courses have three camera views, including close-ups of both left and right hands. Every lesson includes accurate guitar tabs, reviewed by Delahaye himself. Also, he explains any differences between the recorded parts and the way he's playing them in an ever-changing live environment.
The individual EPICA courses and the full EPICA bundle are now available at this location.
Delahaye is best known as the lead guitarist of EPICA, and has also played for GOD DETHRONED and MAYAN. As a graduate from college of music in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, he's been teaching guitar for around 20 years and has been a professional touring metal musician for 15 years now.
He says: "After seeing that the general musical education system still treats metal music as an outsider, I decided to create College Of Metal for anyone who is looking for in-depth lessons from the artists themselves. What better way to learn the songs/genre you love so much than having the composer/performer getting through the different parts, showing you the tricks and the techniques used, and explaining you why they do what they do. If you're a self taught hobby player or an aspiring professional, this is what you're looking for."
College Of Metal will continue to expand courses, bringing leading metal musicians to its base of subscribers.
