Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands  of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases Shredding the Composers, a collection of classical pieces from 8 of  the world's greatest classical composers taught through a heavy metal  perspective in both standard notation and TAB, produced in partnership  with the National Guitar Workshop.
From the renowned shred guitarist German Schauss, Shredding the Composers features 10 intermediate to advanced level classical pieces and lessons in shred technique using some of the most  brilliant and virtuosic music of all time. The pieces feature music  written during the baroque, classical, and romantic periods from  composers like Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Vivaldi, Mozart, Chopin, and more. Perfect for shredders of any era, the works included  take on a whole new life when adapted for heavy metal guitar and provide  theoretical analysis to help guitarists apply the techniques to their  own compositions and soloing.
Every  piece is accompanied by a musical analysis to further enhance  innovative techniques and ideas to stretch guitar playing to new limits. The accompanying CD features all of the examples, along with  backing tracks at different tempos to help you practice and get you on  your way to mastering this challenging repertoire. A notation key is  also included for a quick reference on musical terms and markings.
German  Schauss is a guitarist, composer, author, and educator who teaches at  Berklee College of Music and the Los Angeles Music Academy. He performs and tours as the leader of his own band and with other  internationally known artists. German writes music for commercials, TV,  and video games, and has been named one of the 50 fastest guitarists of  all time by Guitar World magazine.
The  National Guitar Workshop is dedicated to bringing the best in music  education to guitarists, bassists, keyboardists, drummers, and vocalists regardless of style of music or level of ability. Their  highly developed courses foster meaningful experiences through  performance instruction and supportive learning environments.
