This guitar instruction book is a speed primer that takes you through graduated techniques to play the guitar fast. Unlike other "exercise books," Shred Tech. addresses ways for any player, no matter the level, to achieve their own personal maximum speed of playing the guitar through proper technique and using the right pick. The various exercises help improve your playing both two and three-note-per-string scales as well as the legato style techniques of hammer-ons and pull-offs, string-skipping, two-hand tapping and a bonus section on how to train yourself to play a difficult part of any song. This is a must have for lead guitarists wanting to take their playing to the next level Guitarist Tim Scullion, who has received accolades for his playing from Steely Dan's vanguard guitarist Elliot Randall, has a master's degree in education and has spent years teaching the guitar as well as playing, writing, and producing. The idea behind the book is to teach the fine motor skills of playing the guitar fast; but this book is more than a "book of exercises," it teaches the guitar student to really improvise melodically rather than get locked into the box of just playing scales. Scullion also encourages the creative aspect of learning music by encouraging students to create their own leads or exercises using the exercises given as a guideline not only to address the guitar student's own preferences and tastes, but also their weaknesses. With guided help through the various techniques, the guitar student can learn how to focus on his or her weaknesses and make them strengths. No matter what style of music you play (rock, metal, jazz, country, blues, classical), you can improve your playing dramatically by learning the fine motor skills of how to play fast. Watch jaws drop when you demonstrate an amazing technique on the guitar, and make it look easy. So put away the video games and learn the techniques to make you a real guitar hero
