Lari Basilio: Masterclass Q&A
Few players can combine technical ability with emotion and catchiness in the way that Lari Basilio does. And not only is she gifted, but she’s also willing to share that gift, and that’s what she does with her “Creating Riffs and Melodies” Masterclass.
To give you a closer insight into the Masterclass, and also the artist herself, we asked Lari a few quick questions. Let’s go “Behind the Pack”.
Q: What was the inspiration behind this Masterclass?
The inspiration for my lessons always comes from wanting to teach something that I love to play. I just love writing, and find that following riffs and melodies comes naturally to me. I believe that the more sincere my lessons are, the more people will be able to take advantage of them. In the end, that's what matters most to me
Q: What’s your favourite part of it?
My favorite part might be that little sentence: CREATING THE HABIT OF CREATING. Once you realize the power of it in practice, beautiful music will happen!
Q: What do you think makes a good riff?
Definitely the attitude! ;)
Q: And what’s your favourite riff of all time?
I have so many favorite riffs of all time! Haha!
Some of them are: Beat It (Michael Jackson), Brompton Cocktail (Avenged Sevenfold), Electric Gypsy (Andy Timmons), among many others.
Q: What’s next for you at JTC?
JTC Guitar definitely has a very important role when it comes to getting the artists closer to the audience, and this is simply fantastic. I'm honored to be part and have the opportunity of sharing content with y'all. Certainly there is much more to come!
