Thomas McRocklin

I'm Thomas McRocklin. I've been playing guitar since I was 4 years old - and I've been lucky enough to learn from some of the greatest guitar players in the world.

I've performed with so many amazing musicians - Joe Satriani, Zakk Wylde, Steve Lukather, Larry Mitchell, Stu Hamm, and of course my friend and mentor - Steve Vai.

I started School of McRock as a place where I could share everything I’ve learned from years of playing with these legendary guitarists as well as my own insights and techniques.

I have been playing guitar for 3 years and I have tried JamPlay, Truefire, YouTube... but the progress I have made in 1 month here with your lessons is unbelievable.

Thomas is not only a gifted guitarist but he is also a very talented teacher! It is one thing to be a great player but a great player who can explain complicated concepts and make them simple is a real joy!

I've played guitar for about 20 years, always been ok at it, can pull out a solo here and there, but the little things in the lessons that you don't realise help so much!

Since I joined I've actually started wearing down picks! Something I've never done in the past so I know I'm playing a lot more these days
Richard

Dude... I haven't practiced like that in ages... if I knew the angle of my damn pick was the cause of my struggles... I would've flipped my s**t 😅 Loving the lessons!

I've been getting used to my amp again, and holy hell!! I can play things a hell of a lot faster from when I left. I'm in love with guitar again!

Your heavy rhythmn lesson is awesome! It made me realize how invisible (beat 4) was for me. I love the speed adjustment feature, I use it a ton. 🤘 Thanks Thomas! ❤️
Roger

I record myself playing and listening back to some of my old improvisations is like hearing another person. My playing now is more solid and its the first time I am playing like I really mean it. Thank you so much!
