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.

After a couple of weeks of learning with Musicisum I have officially got the bug! I come home looking forward to sitting down with my guitar and laptop!

This is the first website I've seen that can truly inspire and teach any beginner musician.

The courses here have completely transformed my playing - thank you!

Thank you for a great site! I just love it. These lessons are so cool and easy to understand. I really love the relaxed way of teaching.

Musicisum is the best way to learn guitar! It has inspired me to pick up my electric again for the first time in years and get back to practicing properly.
